PETITE FRANCE, GAPYEONG, KOREA

쁘띠프랑스 . プチフランス . 小法兰西


Our first stop of the day - Petite France 쁘띠프랑스.


We took the Gapyeong City Tour Bus 가평 시티투어 버스 from Cheongpyeong Bus Terminal, and the 20-min bus ride travelled along Cheongpyeong Lake.

Movies / Dramas that were filmed here

I watched the Marionette Performance for a while before following Mom explore this place.

We stopped at the outdoor cafe to have our breakfast and enjoy the scenery.
It was very windy and we had to hold on to our cups as we ate!

Great view to accompany our breakfast
Well stocked cafe, but relatively pricey


We ordered the sweet potato latte which was too sweet

Recharged, we continued our exploration!

Mom's Notes
  • As a Kdrama fan, it was interesting to visit this film site, and the scenery is certainly very nice. But for children, there is little to amuse them or keep them interested. Perhaps if they had read the story before visiting it may help?
  • You can easily cover this place in less than hour, unless you choose to sit around and enjoy the view and weather at the outdoor cafe
  • I am not a big fan of puppets so the museums and antiques gave me the scary vibes, so I am not including any pictures of the life-like dolls here!
