The French capital is one of the world’s top shopping destinations. However, battling through the crowds on the Champs Elysées or the Boulevard Hausmann, where many of the city’s top department stores are located, doesn’t appeal to everyone. Tricky and expensive parking, crowded public transport, high prices and long queues come as standard with city center retail experiences. However, Paris’ village outlet style shopping center offers an attractive alternative. The One Nation Paris outlet is one such complex, a little over a 30 minutes ride by shuttle bus from the Eiffel tower and around 20 minutes from the Palace of Versailles. There are two departures each day from the Eiffel tower, with the option of getting off at the Palace of Versailles for a morning exploring one of France’s best-loved tourist attractions, before continuing to One Nation.
