this place might be good for few photos, nothing much else to do..this was part of my trip along with nami island.. you can spend one hour there...the puppet show at the end was worth watching..

I get to know this place because of K-drama- My Love from the Star. It is French-themed village located about 25 minutes away from Nami Island station by the Gapyeong Tour Bus. We queue up for long waiting for the bus and be prepared as there is a lot of people and you need to stand inside the bus.

You can come before evening time where you able to view the night time lights. Here also have puppet show but we only spend around half an hour at here as we need to catch up for the bus to back to Gapyeong station.

We booked a day tour from Seoul (Nami Island - Gapyeong Rail Park - Petite France) and it’s super worth the trip. It costs about S$200 booked via ChangiRecommends website.

This place was the most beautiful. It was apparently built by a rich Korean businessman who was fascinated by the beauty of the small towns in France. The place was beautifully decorated with Christmas deco in December! They even had puppet performances. There were a few small houses to see. Actually we were only allocated 2 hours but i think longer would be better.

Food places were limited and mostly crowded. Toilets were available but long queue for the ladies.

The only downside is also the crowd. Too many tourists and therefore, hard to take photos. If it were quieter, it would have been so romantic!

Visiting this place during winter is definitely intriguing and romantic. Love the resort build up like Colmar France and the outdoor decoration is pretty. There's an antique house where you can view all the France & Europe antiques, beautiful. This is also the film location for Korean Drama My Love from The Star and Beethoven Virus, you can view the rooms and area that they use it for filming. As it was winter during my visit, the snow in the surrounding makes the whole resort even more mesmerizing.

This place was created solely for movie setting. There is nothing special or anything that worth seeing. I would rather see some places with true Korean cultural.
However, if you do end up visiting this place, there is a very good view - go to the back of the village, up to the 3rd level attic and look out from the window. The view is very good.....mountain, water and village.
