Where to stay near Lausanne?

My wife and baby boy have just moved to Switzerland. We're currently living in a 1 bed studio apartment in Lutry but are looking to find somewhere permanent with either 2 or 3 bedrooms for our growing family.

We love Lutry and would love to find an apartment here, but were wondering if anyone could suggest other quiet villages near Lausanne (where I work)?

Ambitions I know, but we're looking for somewhere between 2,000 and 2,700 per month.

Suggestions welcome...

Re: Where to stay near Lausanne?

Could you please clarify if you are looking for quiet villages with good public transport connections (necessary if you don't have a vehicle)? And whether you have any preference for proximity to the lake and also distance from central Lausanne (assuming that the centre is Place St Francois)?

Re: Where to stay near Lausanne?

We are looking for somewhere wit good public transport as we don't have our own car yet.

Also, we would like to be close to the lake but this is not essential.

Nearer the mountains the better.

Would like no more than a 45 min commute to Lausanne city centre.

Thanks.

Re: Where to stay near Lausanne?

Two places came to mind: Chexbres (you'll need to take the train) and Echandens (neither near the lake nor the mountains- but very pleasant; there is a bus bringing you to Greater Lausanne). Other options on the train route (and lake) would be Puidoux, Grandvaux, La Croix, and Tolochenaz.

Closer to Lausanne centre (and with bus options) would be the village-y parts in Morges, Ecublens (the regions closer to the countryside), Preverenges, Renges/Denges, Le Mont-sur-Lausanne, and Epalinges.

Try anibis or homegate (or immomapper- that I originally found on EF)- it's very likely that you will find offers of at least 2 bedrooms within your budget.
