Elancourt – Miniature France

October 20, 2008

Elancourt lies just 30 km from the center of Paris and if you ever visit France, it’s a trip worth taking.

It’s here, at Elancourt, where you can see a big part of France’s culture and history…in miniature. There are over 5 hectares of land covered with typical French landscapes, complete with castles, mansions, ponds, courts, pastures, all built at a scale of 1:30.

There are over 160 miniature French monuments from all over the country, 60,000 miniature people, over 20,000 small trees, 5 rivers and 2 hectars of water. A visit in miniature France gives an overview of all important regions of the country, so it spares you a very long, expensive tour.
