Family in Martigny/Fully, Valais

Hello!

I'm new to this forum and just would like to introduce myself and my family. We are danish-russian and we've been living in Martigny for a year now. We are moving to Fully in May (which is not a big change, just 5 min drive). We have a 4 years-old son, his is starting school next August. I'm currently looking for a job and learning french (it's 4th language for me, my head is exploding). My husband is a pro hockey player and he has a contract here for another year with hopes to stay as long as we can. It would be nice to be a part of this group, we are still adjusting and figuring things out and I definitely need tips and advice. If any of you live in Valais or around Montreux rivera I would love to meet up with kids over coffee or a playdate.

Welcome to the Forum Lidia. There are many members living on the coast, why not set up a regular coffee morning? Sometimes the churches have rooms to use for a playgroup.

Re: Family in Martigny/Fully, Valais

Thank you, Sbrinz! Great idea! I actually used to go to meet-ups for parents in Danmark, we used to have them in the library with a huge play room. So, as soon as I qualify to post in the event section, I'll try to arrange a meet-up like that. Hope people will be interested and we'll manage to find perfect place&time.

Re: Family in Martigny/Fully, Valais

Hi Lidia, welcome to the forum.
Noticed your post because you mentioned moving to Fully. I didn't think there where expats there! I guess we're everywhere.
We live in Zurich, but I know the place because my wife is originally from the area and my brother in law (Francois Bérard) has a restaurant there "Le Corner" and our nephew is 5 and goes to the local school. So as you may imagine we come around frequently!
I'm not sure if you'll find many english speakers but I know people are quite nice. Enjoy the nice and sunny place! Oh and the wine!

SOBEIT, thank you!

Hi Alynkbyo,
Well, Fully is tiny. I would be surprised to meet any english speaking people there. More reason to improve my french and travel around. I'll check out your brother's-in-law place and maybe say hi.
