New to Aigle area

Hello,

I'm new near Aigle, with my 10 month old baby, and was wondering if there are any baby groups or something with English speakers for us to meet and make friends, we're starting to feel lonely without friends

Thanks

Re: New to Aigle area

Hello! We are moving to Aigle from Chardonne in July. We are a family with two girls, one 3 and one 6. Would love to meet some people in the area. Have been in the country for a year, background is Swiss/American. We could help each other I imagine. If you would like to have coffee let me know.

Hi you two! So, there are english speakers in the area!!! I live in Bex, maybe we'll meet one day. I've been here for a while have a few friends (all Swiss) soley because my fella is Swiss, but the language barrier does make it difficult...I am working on that. oh and no kids, but I do have a dog Big Melon, good luck settling in, and Karin P much luck to you with your big move.

Hello!

I've been living in Aigle for over a year and barely know anyone here. I'd be also be happy to meet up for a coffee! I have a one-year old daughter, and I work part-time, but I'm usually in Aigle on Mondays and Fridays.

Hey ladies-Why don't we make a time and date to meet in Aigle for coffee? Where is there a good place? I am open to any days, can work around schedules at the moment as my job is flexible. Late morning? Fun!

Actually, how about I send you'all a private message, I am a good organizer and we can figure this out off the forum, right? Hang tight.

Hi! We are also a young family (5 month old son) who've moved to Aigle last autumn. My wife is looking to make some connections with others in the same situation. I am American, my wife is Swiss but speaks English. Interested in meeting?

Re: New to Aigle area

We are thinking of moving to Aigle. Our children (ages 9 and 7) are bilingual French and English. My French is poor, and we speak English at home. I would be grateful for any and all opinions of Aigle! Thanks so much.

Re: New to Aigle area

Hello, Aigle is awesome! If you love the outdoors the mountains are right there, tons of pistes and resorts to choose from. If you like biking there is the UCI you can join. A bike ride path along the Rhone and the old highway goes all the past Sion from Villenueve, you never have to touch a road. Public outdoor pool with slide that is very safe. Great school. Great train system, the inter and regional stops every 35 minutes all the way to Geneva and down to Martigny. There are some god restaurants and a cute downtown, as well as the chateau that has events for kids all the time. Poke around the Aigle website if you have not, as well as the Leysin/Les Mosse/Diableret/Villars sites as these areas are 15 minutes away from downtown.
Hope you do decide to come. There a a few of us, it is more Swiss French in language then the lake, but everyone is very nice. If you do, let me know and we can talk and connect...Good luck!

Re: New to Aigle area

Hi, Thanks for the info - sounds good! I am NadiaO's husband and we have made the downpayment on a place in Aigle, but it is not yet built yet so we will not be arriving until next year. Very interested in your feedback on the schools.
