cant find a place to live in vevey!!!!! help anyone?

Hi there,

I am relocating to Vevey mid-July for a new job. I have now been desperately looking for a flat for 2 month and have not found anything. Either the flats are tiny (20-35m2) or in a very bad state and they are all extremely expensive. My employer is looking at flats, sending them my dossier but as I am not yet in Switzerland, the agencies are not interested. And it seems like no one is renting privately.
I can't just arrive with my 6 big boxes in July and have no place to go!! Does anyone know of anyone who is leaving Vevey-Tour del'Peix, or does anyone know a relocation service who would help me with my search? No agency I asked was interested. Strange, isn't it? Don't they earn their money that way- charging clients one month's rent?

Thanks for any help. Am really, really desperate!

These guys are supposed to be pretty good, though I haven't used them myself

Do you speak French?

Here are some small ads sites where you might find sub letters or private ads

Failing that here are the agency sites:

Good luck!
