Re: Fechy/Allaman area

Forget the vinegar (Chasselas) ..... I meant the Féchy.


I know it originates from the Chasselas grape, but Féchy wine is superior to the Chasselas wine.

Re: Fechy/Allaman area

Hi Natalie, we live about 15 minutes away in Le Vaud. Moved here a few months ago with 15 month old and 3 year old. Get in touch if you fancy meeting up. I've also finally located a few playgroups and kids activities but it's taken a little time. A lot of stuff is based in Nyon, but nothing is very far...

Re: Fechy/Allaman area

Hi Natalie,
I'll be moving there (Féchy) in Jan/Feb., so I'm after the same info although with a slightly older daughter who is eight.
The area is so beautiful, I hope it doesn't feel too remote! I will say there is an amazing artisanal chocolate shop called Tristan in Bougy-Villars that I plan to visit regularly.

Are you all set with your housing & school?

Re: Fechy/Allaman area

Hello Della,

Wonderful! Yes indeed, the area looks beautiful and do looking forward to moving there too.
The relocation company is engaged and we have specified the properties we are interested in and waiting on their response regarding school. Our preference is the local public school on the area as our daughter is 3.5 years and won't attend an international school for her kindergarten years. Let's meet up when you arrive.

Re: Fechy/Allaman area

Hi Natalie!


Sorry, I only just found this and in fact we moved to Prangins after viewing a number of properties in Vaud.


I would still love to catch up although we are about 15 mins away (nothing in comparison to travel time between areas in Australia). I have got Olivia in crèche starting mid Feb on Wed and Thurs but free most afternoons and some mornings before this time.


Cheers
N
