Anyone live in Bex?

Hi, we just moved from Nyon to Bex not too long ago. I was just wondering if there are any english speaking people on here that live in Bex. Basically, I am lacking social interaction as my french isn't good enough to carry on conversation with the locals just yet. I'd love to meet some english speakers and maybe even practice a little french, but most importantly, just chit chat. I'm in my upper 20s, American, and am an artist, making ships in bottles and papercuts (scherenschnitte). I work out of my studio apartment. If there is anyone around who wants to do some arts and crafts here and there, I'd love to. I have a dog and take lots of walks with her through the area.

I absolutely love it here. The peace and tranquility is wonderful as we live just outside of the village and have an amazing view of the dents du midi. It always blows my mind how beautiful and unique the countryside can be from one location to another, given the relatively short distances one travels here. You can drive for hours in america before scenery begins to change.

Anyhow, looks like it is going to be a nice day, and I hope you all can enjoy it a bit!

Re: Anyone live in Bex?

The closest Bex-related thread I have found.

Anyone been for a PCR covid test at MedHol, Route des Courtraits 30 in Bex, 1880? I am not from those woods, but helping my line manager who is about 20km in the mountains and this MedHol is the closest one.

Anyone drove by and seen it, as Google Street View shows beautiful corn fields and a cheerful yellow garage from circa 2019.
Any info will be gratefully accepted.
