NZ/UK couple new jobs in Villars-sur-Ollon Aug 2011

Hi Guys

We are taking up teaching jobs in Villars-sur-Ollon in August. I (Pete) am from the UK and my wife (Morag) is a NZ/Australian. We bring our border terrier with us. We teach IB English, Psychology, TOK. I also write (finished a novel and some bad poetry) and Morag likes her yoga. Mainly, we love to travel and meet great people from all over the world. We have a couple of friends in Zurich but besides that know no-one in Switzerland. We are looking forward to meeting similar world travellers and finding some interesting bars, music venues.


We fly over to check out the area 18th-22nd Feb (next week).

We expect to spend weekends and holidays travelling Europe - we love to be 'on the road' as much as possible. So..here we come!!

You'll be in the right place. From Martigny turn right to Chamonix/France, or straight on to Aosta/Italy - left for the Rhone Valley and the italian Lakes and Dolomites. Shame you don't like skiing though.

Welcome to the Forum.

A tip: When a Mod deletes one of your posts, there is usually a good reason for it. Please don't ask the same question in two places. The replies, which could be valid for other members too, will perhaps be repeated in both Threads.

i would be really interested in how you get on working in Villars and living (nearby). I might be moving to Villars with my family for a lifestyle change in the next 6 months so am interested in peoples experiences there. i will be commuting to London every now and then to work but my kids will be in the local schools.
