Former Michigander Now in Lutry

My husband and I recently moved here for his job in Montreux. We chose to live in Lutry. Looking forward to making connections here, and learning French.

Re: Former Michigander Now in Lutry

Welcome to the Forum, Jennifer. You will love Lutry. The old bourg down by the waterfront is beyond charming and the hills above are filled with ex-pat wives.

When you are researching schools, look at Institut Fazel, which is right downtown Lausanne. I have been going there for 1.5 years and I love it. I have met loads of friends there.

Re: Former Michigander Now in Lutry

Jennifer, welcome to the gang. I do not live in or near Lutry. Actually I live close to the opposite end of this little country, but my OH is a Michigoose too, althoug these days she spends about one half of her time in the Alps. She absolutely loves it, except those oh so terribly dangerous mountain roads where everybody constantly falls down the cliffs, ha ha. That's what you get for having grown up in a state where an elevation of 800 ft above lake level suffice to justify the building of six chairlifts.

I wish you all the best. The Lavaux is a great area.

Re: Former Michigander Now in Lutry

Welcome to the area! I am right next door in Paudex and Lutry is where we tend to 'hang out'. Lovely town and very nice people. Doctors are there, the boulangerie called Montarlier is to die for (even my French family thinks so!) and the ice cream parlor at the port is very popular, especially on pretty days. Let me know if I can be of help.

Re: Former Michigander Now in Lutry

Hi, Mistrale

I walk through Paudex nearly every day with my dog. We usually walk along the rivage down to the Pully marina and back. He's fairly large, so he needs lots of exercise. If you would like to meet for coffee, I'd be happy to make a detour some day.

Jennifer

Re: Former Michigander Now in Lutry

You have a dog? Me too! I often walk from Lutry to Pully and back with mine! We could try to meet once if you like?

You can pm me if you need anything, I'm a local
