Forty-five minutes from Paris and five minutes from Disneyland Paris, La Vallée Village is a popular designer outlet shopping destination. Bringing together more than 120 boutiques each offering designer items, La Vallée includes shops from Diane Von Furstenberg, Guess, Jimmy Choo, Longchamp, Michael Kors, Tod’s and Marni, as well as younger brands like Superdry and Ugg. Prices are generally reduced by at least 33 percent.
The area was built to resemble an authentic French village, and the whole space is pedestrianized. There are 20 cafes and restaurants, as well as the Espace La Vallée Village art gallery, two playgrounds for kids, personal stylist services and a tax reimbursement service for visitors who hail from outside Europe. La Vallée Village is part of the designer outlet company that runs Bicester Village in England, and it has partnered with numerous air-mile loyalty programs so visitors can earn points while they shop.
La Vallée Village is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. until 8 p.m., and until 7 p.m. on Sundays. The village is located at 3 cours de la Garonne, 77700 Serris (Marne-la-Vallée). To get there by public transport, take the Shopping Express shuttle service, which runs between Paris and La Vallée twice a day. The first shuttle leaves from Place des Pyramides in Paris at 9:30 a.m. and returns at 2:30 p.m. The journey takes about 45 minutes.
