Versailles has Parly II in Le Chesnay for shopping!

Need to update this post and tell you about a wonderful place in my Versailles area. More on the property here:
Parly 2 is a regional shopping center and a condominium located at Chesnay-Rocquencourt (Yvelines 78). It officially opened in November 4, 1969 with 150 shops, it was the second largest shopping center in France, just two weeks after the opening of Cap 3000 near Nice. Designed for the automobile, it is located at an exit of the A 13 (autoroute de Normandie )and has extensive parking on two and three levels!. The shopping center includes a covered three-level gallery, in which are located branches of Parisian department stores (Le Printemps, BHV), many shops and cinemas recently opened (june2019 )and modernized. It was enlarged for the first time in 1987 and covered 107,000 m2. The second extension was inaugurated in November 2017 increasing the commercial surface by 10 000 m2. In 2017, it has 187 stores, receiving each year about 11.5 million visitors. The center offers a complete and varied commercial offer, to meet the needs of West Parisian customers.
At the same time as the shopping center, was built the condominium of Chesnay-Trianon (Parly 2). The largest co-ownership in Europe, it includes 7,500 homes for more than 18,000 inhabitants (the Parlysiens). And just behind this was my kids’s middle school!!!

The shopping center is served by 2 bus stops (Les Comtesses, Parly 2), lines B, H, M, S, Express, U, V and Night 1 of the Phébus bus network of Versailles, lines 17, 17S and 76 from the Transdev d’Ecquevilly establishment, via the D line of the Bus en Seine bus network, by line 51 from the STAVO transport company and by the Express 1 line from the Transdev establishment in Montesson Les Rabaux. Also the bus 19 of Transdev ïle de France stops at the Arboretum just across from the shopping center, and we took it to go from ave de l’Europe corner with Ave Saint Cloud in Versailles to the shopping center and back! Also, a few hundred meters down you can walk into the domaine of Versailles (palace ) by the Porte Saint Antoine and the hameau of M-A and the Trianons, where we did our walks/jogs!

Paris1972-Versailles2003

Well, you probably come from a country of big malls or shopping centers and these are rare in France, a centre commercial is all you get with a handful of stores anchored by a big Carrefour, E Leclerc or else spread over open space. Well ,we were lucky to lived for 10 years in Versailles (see search our many posts on the city here), and we always shopped at Parly II in nearby cross the street Le Chesnay.

My boys went to middle school or collége here in Le Chesnay a very nice town chic a bit upscale and the mall is just an extention of it. The big Paris stores are here like BHV and Au Printemps, as well as the fancy Hédiard, and Lenôtre chains, all you need under one roof is here with class.
