A good relocation company will be able to advise you on all those matters. Pretty sure your company would want their CEO to settle in properly and wouldnt stinge on that cost.

Re: New Arival

Aargau is very nice, if you can stomach/afford the high taxes. Lots of green space, 15 minutes train to Zurich. I can recommend the First class Panorama Wagons on the IR trains in to Zurich from say Baden! Fast, clean, good coffee, laptop power. Good quality Property is inexpensive in Aargau, lots of space for stables and horses, etc.

I know of someone selling an old barn and an adjacent fully renovated small family cottage in Aargau. It is about 180m2 as I recall, so probably a bit small? There is some other farm house building that needs fully renovating, included. This sort of deal is not unusual, despite what agents will say if their books are empty.

"Mrs. Doolittle" on EF, provides expert relocation advice too.

Re: New Arival

I shall probably get into terrible trouble for saying this, but if either of my brothers and or any of the lads I worked with in England were still alive, I would have guessed that this Thread was their handiwork. It is just the sort of thing they would do to see if I would fall for it.

In my experience a CEO should have better command of English grammar and would anyway have set his secretary on to do the research.

Fortunately, as I do this job for free, even if I've really put my foot in it here, I am hardly likely to get more than a suspended sentence. I'm going on holiday soon anyway.

Re: New Arrival in Zürich

I have to admit:
It did seem that you were taking the piss.


Allow me to introduce you to the most useful function on the EF:
THE SEARCH FUNCTION

By simply typing 'dressage' into the top right hand corner there will be a couple of threads on the topic.

I picked the link above (now the URL link) as it also has some reference to Sweden as well (it must be popular there)


Other than that, find someone riding a horse. I don't think that 'dressage' is big a big sport among the EF community.
