From UK to Gimel (vd)

It is decided, we just rented a house in Gimel. Moving with my 2 children in August. im feeling a bit scared, specially about schools for children. By the way does anyone live in Gimel or nerby and could tell me how are the schools up there, and how is the place?

Re: From UK to Gimel (vd)

Hi and welcome to the forum, Gimel, and the general La Cote area of CH.

Good luck with your move and settling in. I assume you have visited Gimel before renting up there? I really like it up there, but it does feel a bit like the end of the earth going up there, ie. it is quite isolated, assume you know this. Very pretty with nice views (depending on your exact location). Have not been up there too much in winter, but given that it is higher up than some other places I have friends, expect to have a lot of snow when the time comes. As for schools, not too sure. But assume there is a small primary school in the village for young kids, but likely they have to do down the mountain for late primary/secondary school. That is the case with some neiboring villages, although just guessing the same for Gimel.
