For some people Paris is a pilgrimage to the interesting places like museums or monuments of architecture, but for others, first of all, it’s shopping. And this is not surprising, because during long time this city, along with Milan, is the world trendsetter. Every year millions of tourists from different corners of our planet come to the French capital to buy fashion clothes, perfumes and other accessories, as “bought in Paris” is very fashionable and prestigious.
There is no doubt that among the lovers of Parisian shopping there are the real “professionals” who know all its details and features, the most popular and famous places… But there are travelers for whom a trip to Paris is the first in the life, and they need help.
In Paris there are many places of concentration of trendy boutiques, such as Boulevard Haussmann with its legendary Galeries Lafayette, Champs Elysees, rue Saint-Honoré and others. However, that are the most widely promoted and expensive areas of Paris and the prices here are also very high, which may be unacceptable to many buyers.
At the same time there is a place where the same things from the same manufacturers are cheaper. Just because the shops are located a little farther from the downtown. It’s called La Vallee Village and located outside Paris. But if you want to save, is 20 extra miles the distance?
Here many collections of the famous brands are available in three times cheaper than in Paris boutiques, and during the seasonal sales the prices fall by 50 percent.
The question “where is this paradise for shoppers?” seems more than logical. The answer is simple: less than an hour from the center of Paris by public transport. You can go for your shopping on the train (from the station Auber (Boulevard Haussmann) and Etoile (Arc de Triomphe) to the station Val d’Europe/Serris-Montevrain or by Cityrama bus from the city center.
When you come to La Vallee Village, you are greeted by a huge shopping mall with many shops. But do not indulge in the euphoria, please be a little patience and go forward. And less than ten minutes later you find yourself on the street, which will change your idea of shopping in Paris once and forever.
On a quiet and light street the beautiful two-storey houses will appear in front of you. These are the hundreds of boutiques of the fashion world-wide known brands. Shops of Giorgio Armani, Burberry, Cacharel, Celine, Cerrutii, Christian Lacroix, Givenchy, Kenzo, Max Mara, Missoni, Paul Smith, S. T. Dupont, Salvatore Ferragamo, D & G, Zadig & Voltaire, Pinko, Diezel, La Perla and many other brands open their doors for you. At the same time there is a big contrast with the bustling Paris, without any hustle and queues. Everything is done for the maximum comfort of clients.
To say once again about what you can buy here is nonsensical. Absolutely everyone (fashionista, a respected retired person or teenager) will find here something special.
We wish you the excellent shopping!
