Outlet Shopping in Las Rozas VillageJuly 9th, 2011 | Posted by in Janine | Shopping | Traveling outside Madrid
Since moving to Madrid, I have found lots of great shops throughout the barrios, but sometimes it is nice to get a little bit of an extra discount! Las Rozas Village is a great option for outlet shopping and bargain hunting in addition to the Centro Commercial Xanadu that Anne wrote about earlier on Guiri Guide. I visited last weekend and saw savings of 20-60% off retail. It’s an easy trip – taking about 25 minutes by bus from Madrid’s Moncloa metro stop.
The shops are organized a lot like an American outlet mall, where you can stroll from shop-to-shop outdoors via the tree-lined pathway. International luxury brands such as Burberry, Armani, Polo and Calvin Klein are represented along with Spanish clothing from Custo, Desigual, El Ganso and Punto Blanco. There are also a few select home and décor stores, including one of my favorites, Bodum, that sells all sorts of goodies for your kitchen. I want to buy everything when I go there! Bodum also has a coffee shop inside and there are a few other dining options inside the village. Check out the map below to see the layout and full list of shops and restaurants. If you feel like a more substantial meal, there is a complex of restaurants across the street in easy walking distance.
You can get to Las Rozas via car or bus. I opted to take the bus from Moncloa –numbers 625, 628 and 629 all drop you off across the street from the complex. Catch them within the bus station that you can enter on the southwest corner of the roundabout. The fare is €2 each way. By car, you can take the A6 motorway from Madrid to exit 19. The village is well sign-posted.
The trip is a fun and easy excursion from Madrid and they are open 7 days a week so there’s no excuse for not finding a good deal! Happy bargain hunting!
