Londoner / Portuguese - New to Vevey region

Hi all,

I will be commencing some consultancy services to a 'chocolate' maker ( not Willy Wonker I am told) in Vevey from the beginning of July for a 18 month stint and would be keen for any heads up on things I should know (where is good to eat / good night life / places to stay etc)

As this is a new adventure for me I would appreciate and orientation advice from people on the ground and would like if possible to meet people out there .. at least feel as there is a bit of a social network ..
please feel free to PM me if you don't want to post on public board ..

All the best

Rico

Enjoy your stay.

Re: Londoner / Portuguese - New to Vevey region

Hello:
I lived in Vevey for many years and would like to assure you that you'll have no trouble at all making friends and contacts.
The chocolate maker you refer to is huge in the area and has many social groups, and very many native English speakers.
Nearly all of my friends work, or have spouses who work, for that same company.
Vevey is surrounded by vineyards and many of the original vineworkers were Portuguese and have now settled in the region with their families.
Almost every other person you meet is an English speaker and very many speak Portuguese.
You'll have no trouble at all settling in, and wish you luck and hope you enjoy your stay.
