The France Pavilion in Epcot is located between Morocco and the United Kingdom Pavilion. It is themed to look like a neighborhood found in Paris at the turn of the 20th century complete with beautiful fountains, gardens and a distant view of the Eiffel Tower.
As you enter France from the United Kingdom, you will cross over the footbridge that was inspired by Pont des Arts. If you look below, you will see items that could have been left by french residents.
Throughout France, you will find cobblestone streets that lead you to a variety of French stores and restaurants.
