Searching for France in Seorae Village

Seorae Village is not the easiest of cultural hubs to get to. In fact, it's placed in such a distance to the closest subway stop, that it keeps the streams of people away for much of the time. A wonderful discovery for a sunny weekend afternoon. Seorae Maeul grew up French around the Lysee Francais de Seoul, a school which teaches in French as a first language. Something like 40% of the population in this area are French.
You can see the French influence in many areas like signage, patisseries, and wine shops. It's a charming village with plenty to offer a sightseer. Wander around to feel the western influence in Seoul, get a meal at a French restaurant and stop to get coffee and dessert at one of the many cafes.
