About
Created and operated by the Compagnie de Phalsbourg and Freeport retail, The Village is THE New French Outlet, the perfect place to go shopping or to spend a unique day! For that, we thought of everything: your favorite brands are present and stored up to 70% and because Lyon is the capital of French gastronomy, lovers of good food will find happiness among our restaurants and our Food Truck space (opening early July). The Compagnie de Phalsbourg made a point of thinking for you entertainment, unique and free events such as the sumptuous shows of the fountains that will take place every evening at nightfall!

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

A great lay out, great selection of shops and a decent selection of eateries. Parking was easy. The biggest issue is the prices. I’ve always associated outlets with discounts and bargains. There are no American style discounts or offers and it’s a great place to browse but bargains are pretty non existent.

Nice and relax outlet mall, complete with good bistro, restaurants and grate play area for children. They also provide free parking and is very accessible for people with mobility issues.

Just make sure to visit their website before heading there on WEEKENDS. French don't like to work on SUNDAYS 😜

良いレストランと子供達が遊べるエリアを備えたリラックスできる良いアウトレットモールです。
無料の駐車場も完備され移動の問題も解消されます。

Wow - I went twice late Dec and in January- stunning outlet village of all the top brands at discounted prices. It was like a beautiful Christmas village - stunning decor inside the stores and outside.
Like a winter wonderland of fashion stores ! If you’re around the area be sure to check it out. Super impressed ! Plus they have a PAUL cafe there too 👌🏽

Nice new outlet with many french brands, americans and other european brands. Some shops to open in near future as it is a new outlet. There is a cool lights show every night in front of restaurants. I am very happy with this place in my area, specially when in France clothes tend to be more expensive than USA, a 30% off or more is always welcome when shopping.
I think there is free shuttle from center of Lyon for those who do not have a car.

Venho sempre neste outlet, os preços são 30% baratos ou mais. Pra quem não tem carro, parece que tem van de graça do centro de Lyon. O outlet é menor que os dos EUA, mas vale a pena pra quem mora na região e gosta de passar um par de horas em shoppings/outlets .

The site is 40 mn from Lyon. Easy access and beautiful. Not a lot of brands and the prices not really an outlet prices, we were lucky, some brands had additional discount on the discounted prices. Tax free office on site.

We discovered The Village when looking for somewhere to eat whilst staying at a hotel nearby. This is a lovely complex, some fabulous shops and attractive layout with beautiful fountains. We had an excellent meal at Bistrot Collette.
