Owner description: La Vallee Village has become a 'must-visit' shopping destination just outside the fashion capital of Paris. The Village has 115 luxury outlet boutiques offering significant reductions on the recommended retail price. Visitors can browse French brands that include Bonpoint, Sandro and Eric Bompard. Additionally, the international brands represented include Armani, Diane von Furstenberg, Jimmy Choo, Joseph, Marni, Moncler, Tommy Hilfiger and UGG(R) Australia. The daily Cityrama Shopping Express(R) whisks shoppers from the centre of Paris to the Village and other brilliant features include a personal shopper service and Espace La Vallee(R), an art gallery of changing exhibitions. Guests arriving with children will appreciate the children's play area and the fact that the Village is only five minutes from Disneyland(R) Paris, and is connected to many Disney(R) hotels by a dedicated shuttle service.

Yes, the prices are very high and the merchandise is 2 seasons past. No value here. There is an attached mall (not open Sunday from what I have gathered on this site) that is worth a look. There is also a huge auchon supermarket that is worth going into. Low prices.
To get to la valle village you can take the RER A for around 15E round trip, the mall shuttle at 22E round trip or use the promotion code LVVPASS13 for a FREE round trip shuttle to the mall and three 10% discount coupons to the store of your choice! You can book it on the la vallee village website under directions and be sure to enter the promo code. The shuttle is provided by cityrama and their website says you have to print the voucher but you don't. Just go to the departure point 30 minutes early and give them your confirmation number and they will happily print for you!

Past reviews about this outlet were rather mixed and confusing. The puzzle was solved after I paid a visit in person.

Access: best timing is to visit when you are staying at the Disneyland resort so you don't have to spend approx. €38 for a round trip train ride esp. for this outlet. If you have spent this amount at transportation(or more for coach shuttle), you will expect more which will easily meet with disappointment. So, if you happen to stay at the Disneyland resort, it is worth a visit. It takes €3+ from Disneyland to Val d'europe, the station where the outlet is situated. Disneyland resort offers a shuttle @€5 per adult (round trip but single trip costs as much). Taking a train is easy, more flexible than the shuttle since you may spend as much time as u like at the
shopping mall next to it (closes at 21:00) though costs a little bit more.

Brands: all designer brands...not many. Check out the brands on its website to avoid disappointment.

Discounts: Absolutely not as steep as in the US but still cheaper than Paris and most Asian countries. There are some real bargains. Of course it depends on your luck. For instance, I saw a long sleeve polo T for men there with a price little bit lower than in the US outlet I visited 5 years ago (same item; yes, very old merchandise but only one was left).
Another example: Celine, you can get a cabas tote at 50% off the original price. A bargain if u don't think it's outdated. Well, the totes are still on the rack in paris, of course, u should expect less choice of color at the outlet. You won't end up paying more if you know the price well and go for the basics or spot something you really like but sold out in your home country. Personally, I don't think the outlet is as bad as some reviewers has commented. If you are not regular customers to a brand, just shop around trying to spot some exceptional low price tags, u will be disappointed for sure. The experience depends on how well you know about the original price of the merchandise.

Crowdedness: shops that have items priced below €20 are crowded while higher end shops were almost empty. However, it DOESN'T imply that crowded ones offer better deals than empty ones.

One more tip to save money, get a leaflet of the outlet at the Disneyland resort. There is a coupon there. Go to the welcome desk of the outlet, present the coupon and get 3 VIP vouchers, each enables u to get an extra 10% at a store there. Widely accepted except some exception low price items (eg, items at polo Ralph Lauren with red price tags).

Atmosphere: clean, well maintained, in open courtyard style than those in the US. With a few eateries for snacks, you can go to the shopping mall next to it for more options.

Conclusion: I got real bargains, 4 bags full, in less than 2 hours. Don't have too high expectation, don't go there if you have tight schedule in paris, don't go specially for the outlet if €38 matters to u and you will be as happy as I was!!!!!

If designer clothes and accessories are your thing you'll love La Vallee Village. When you need a break from it all there are eateries on site.
And don't forget that once you've finished here you can then explore the shopping mall next to it.
The mall is Val de Europe. One of it's many attractions is a Sea Life Aquarium.

Prices are high compared to outlet shopping elsewhere. Overall shopping experience is pleasant. I wouldn't recommend it unless one is bored and need to kill time in Paris.

If you want to shop some branded items this is the place for you. You will get the best price in the whole world. The discount prices are unmatchable and you should never miss this place if you are brand freak. The best part of it is that this is Evan open on Sundays and public holidays. The sad part is it is closed early about 6 pm.
