Re: Lausanne/St. Legier/Pully - where to live?!?

This will be my first experience with private schools. You can see in a previous post why we chose Champittet. I am hoping that it proves to be a good choice for our family - only time will tell. As our intent is to be there for only 3 years, it felt to us that private would be an easier choice. However, our youngest has some special needs so we wanted to be sure to position ourselves where public schools are considered to be high quality as well in case we transitioned the children to public. We have been told that the Paudex/Pully school system is highly regarded. And even more importantly, that they are more progressive when it comes to inclusion within the classroom. We were told this by one of the General Directors of Special Education within the Canton of Vaud system. I also received wonderful feedback on the local schools of St. Legier as well as Haut-Lac, but unfortunately Haut-Lac was unable to meet our needs and we wanted to try to be closer to Lausanne (where hubbie works). Hope this helps and good luck with your move!

Thanks for the tips Tiny! I'm excited to say that we will be right behind that 'plage'. Am planning on buying ping pong paddles for the table tennis. And no, we will not be in one of the mansions!
You can also walk all along the lake from Paudex to Ouchy (south Lausanne), and then take the M2 metro up the hill to the center of Lausanne.

If you are a jazz lover there is Chorus Jazz Club in Lausanne, just below Mon Repos Indoor Swimming Pool. Great gigs, some are free (usually Thursday nights, not always free, consult their website).

Also 1st Sat of the month 15 museums and art museums in Lausanne are open free of charge!

Re: Lausanne/St. Legier/Pully - where to live?!?

Just to add to this debate - we have been in St-Legier for 2 years and think it's great. Yes it's quiet, but it;s very convenient.I don't drive and have had no problems at all. The train service is great, connects easily to the mainline services in Lausanne, and I can be from my house in St Legier to where I work in Lausanne in less than 40 mins door to door.

We are leaving this summer as a job move is taking us back to the UK. Our daughter has been at Haut Lac and absolutely loved it. It is an excellent school, and having had experience of 3 other international schools, I can safely say Haut Lac is by far the best.

In case anyone is interested, our huge 3 bedroom apartment in St-legier, with garden and parking, 2 mins walk from Haut Lac school, will be available to rent from August! PM me for info.
