New to Murten area!

In the process of moving here from Australia and starting my nail/beauty business. Very scary when you speak English and tiny tiny bit of French. I am excited though and my 13 year daughter is absolutely loving the Avenches school. She has already learnt more French than me..LOL I am so looking forward to making some new friends, and clients. It is a big relocate, so drop me a line.......

Welcome to Murten.
We're not far from there. Good luck with the new business. I've never had my nails done so maybe now's the time to start.

Re: New to Murten area!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the area - I'm guessing you're more Avenches (French speaking) than Murten (both/mainly German speaking).

But lovely area all around Murtensee, with opportunities to get to the "beach" (probably getting a bit late, now though).

There is supposedly an English club in Murten, so there must be a good expat presence. Having just moved from the other side of Fribourg to now half way between Fribourg and Murten, I will also try to investigate this, when I have more free time (ha!).

P.S. you might want to update your profile location - not sure where Vevey fits in, between Oz and Murten/Avenches.

Re: New to Murten area!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the Forum. I used to live in Avenches and in Murten. I know the English club in Murten, I will try and send you both a programme.

This Sunday they are going to Moléson for a cheese fondue up a mountain, (Bring a warm coat, we might eat outside) starting at 12 noon at the cheese restaurant. Park in the village and you have to walk uphill the last 100 meters. Cheese making demonstration starts at 10 am.

Could you send me a programme too please? I know you sent it to me once before but I can't find it anymore and I'm hoping to make it to one of their meetings in the near future.

Re: New to Murten area!!!!!!!!!!

Hello and welcome. I'm not too far away from Murten myself. We do our weekly shopping there most weeks. Very pretty old Swiss town.

I would think you'll get the free monthly LeLac newspaper which has an English section for the English speaking group in it (next one out in October). Witty articles and details of some of their get togethers. They meet monthly usually at the Lacotel near Avenches as well as other events.

Re: New to Murten area!!!!!!!!!!

Hi there
Did you manage to meet up with some English speakers? How is the business going? I would love to meet up with some new people. I moved to near Murten from the UK in July and my social circle is a bit......small!

Regretably damore hasn't logged in recently, so we don't know how things are going for her.

Hi there! I don't actually live in Murten just yet... but I absolutely love Murten and the lake. My husband, daugther and I are planning on moving to Murten in a little while. Now, reading that there is such thing as an English club in Murten makes my heart beat faster :-) Where can I get some more infos? :-)

Re: New to Murten area!

I have been a member of the English speaking club of Murten for a very long time, I will copy and paste the current programme here. We meet about twice per month, for various, not too strenuous activities. There is no club house, but where is states "Just for a drink" we would meet in the Restaurant at 19:30 at Hotel du Lac in Avenches plage, http://map.search.ch/avenches/les-joncs

Sorry, I am not at home, so will post the programme on here later.

Re: New to Murten area!

Even though you live in Thurgau you can organise events there by using the EF social events calendar. Why does everything have to happen in Zurich?

There are probably lots of people living near you, not yet fully integrated, and wanting to meet up for a Saturday morning coffee in town.
