Just moved to Founex, Vaud

Hi - My husband, 7 mth baby and i have just relocated to Founex (nr Nyon) in Vaud from London. I am a full time mum on maternity leave and my husband is working in Geneva. If there are any mums out there who live nearby and fancy meeting, please get in touch. All the best.

Welcome to Founex and the general Nyon area of Vaud. If you haven't found it there is an english website of Living in Nyon which you may find useful. There also is apparently a parent/chld playgroup in Nyon, google it. Hope this helps you get settled in Founex.

Re: Just moved to Founex, Vaud

Welcome in the area! Here is the site on expat community in Nyon, it's a pretty practical site. Check out the site of International Women of Nyon, they have an English speaking playgroup, they also offer very cheap French classes. If you want to integrate, look for La Nacelle, a fabulous playgroup that offers a nifty place to play and hang out for kids and moms, all in French although there are English speaking moms there too. They reside in Rue de Ste Cergue, 25 I think. Other places worth mentioning is the Bibliotheque pour la jeunesse, at Migros, and Ludotheque, where you can check out toys and return them. I know there has been yahoo group for local expat moms, I think they are now meeting in France, though, I am not sure. Good luck settling down, lovely weather, I can't wait for the local swimming pool to open.
