Visit these two shopping villages in Madrid and Barcelona for fashionable buys and great deals in beautiful locations
When it comes to art, architecture and cuisine, Barcelona and Madrid are high on the list of any cultured traveller. And now there’s another reason to visit.
Travellers looking for a new experience will find unforgettable shopping opportunities at both La Roca Village in Barcelona and Las Rozas Village in Madrid. Both located close to their respective city centres, and easily accessible via a dedicated coach service, these outlets feature an unrivalled mix of designers and renowned brands, offering discounts of up to 60 per cent.
With the Sierra at its feet, Las Rozas Village in Madrid is designed in keeping with the local properties and villages, with terracotta walls in light colours, shaded walkways and tree-lined boulevards. Explore over 100 boutiques, including Hugo Boss, Escada, Liu Jo, Brooks Brothers, Hackett, Aristocrazy, Hoss Intropia and Tous, among others. After a day of shopping, rest weary feet by relaxing in the sunshine on the large terrace.
La Roca Village, a short distance from, Barcelona, is set within the wildly beautiful Costa Brava countryside. The design of this Mediterranean-style shopping village takes inspiration from late 20th-century modernist Catalan architecture, and features quaint streets and attractive storefronts. Wander into one of the 138 boutiques and pick up a great deal from brands including Maje, Sandro, Missoni, Bimba y Lola, Versace Company Store, Swarovski and Pretty Ballerinas.
It’s easy to spend a day shopping at either of the Villages. Both sites are served by the Shopping Express®, a luxury coach service from the city centres, and have excellent restaurants which marry the best of local and international cuisine. You can also take advantage of free Wi-Fi, personal shopping sessions, a ‘hands-free’ shopping option and dog kennels.
And as an extra incentive to visit La Roca Village and Las Rozas Village, Executive Club Members can collect 15 Avios for every €4 spent between 1 and 30 June 2015 (that's triple the usual Avios). To claim these, simply present your Executive Club card or number, together with your receipts, at the Visitor Centre. During this time, you will also receive a 50 per cent discount on the Shopping Express® when you book online using the code BA15.
