Tour Spain with The Bicester Collection
The Bicester Collection offers all-encompassing luxury shopping experience, bespoke dining offers and tailored guest services, all less than an hour away from some of Europe’s most visited distinctive destinations. In particular, two Villages located in Spain’s vibrant cities are a must-visit this summer: La Roca Village in Barcelona and Las Rozas Village in Madrid.LA ROCA VILLAGE
Located just 40 minutes from the Mediterranean cultural centre Barcelona, La Roca Village is situated on the road to the idyllic Costa Brava and the Maresme. The cultural hub Barcelona is filled with historical, architectural, and artistic sights such as Basilica de la Sagrada Familia, Gothic Quarter, Park Guell and Picasso Museum. La Roca Village has gathered all the best brands in one place so you can make the most of your trip and explore all that Barcelona has to offer.
Discover new boutiques at La Roca Village, which features over 100 brands, both national and international. Benefit from The Villages’ Personal Shopper Experience: be guided by the experts at La Roca Village for the best shopping experience and discover ideal looks. Plan a culinary route. For those who love fashion and food, the culinary route starts early in the morning and doesn’t end until after dark. Think early morning coffee and breakfast in the sun on one of La Roca Village’s great terraces at Pasarela, or Japanese food at Izky, which offers authentic home-made Asian fare and then some shopping.
Travel restrictions are lifted, and public spaces are bustling again, making it a great time to catch upcoming live shows of Sonar, El Liceu, Under 35 and Perelda or walk around and enjoy Karan Singh’s colourful artworks that are spread across the village. LAS ROZAS VILLAGE
The capital city of Spain, Madrid, is known for its historical buildings, food markets, and the royals. Las Rozas Village offers over 100 local and international brands. The Village offers VIP services, which include private transportation from hotels to Las Rozas Village and vice versa, personalised concierge service, exclusive access to The Apartment, which is a space for personalised experience decorated with artworks, oak wood floors, handmade carpets, and decorative furniture.
Las Rozas Village takes pride in offering the highest level of service, making the shopping experience convenient, easy and smooth for their visitors. A personalized Concierge Service with an Arabic speaking team makes a visit to the village a breeze for the GCC clientele.
For gourmands, renowned chef Cristina Oria launches one of her most exciting projects this year: a food truck offering a variety of gourmet dishes in Las Rozas Village. In her gastronomic ventures, she brings attention to detail, having been trained at the Cordon Bleu in Paris, to her dishes, including a halal-friendly quinoa salad, which will be served within this exciting new Village space.
Both Villages also offer a variety of restaurants that serve halal-friendly meals, Arabic signage throughout to ease the tour and private prayer rooms at The Apartments. The Bicester Collection is also in partnership with Emirates Airlines and Etihad Airways that allows visitors to earn Emirates Skywards Miles or Etihad Frequent Flyer Points by shopping or dining at the restaurants at the Villages.
