Hello, my name is Jean Garrigues. I have been living in Lausanne for 13 years. I am French, from Besançon, and work as a manager for a big company in F&B. I fell in love with this beautiful scenery and also with a girl (now my wife), so I had two good reasons to stay. When you are in Ouchy (a part of the city right by Lake Geneva), you feel you could be at the seaside, with warm weather, a breeze in your hair, a relaxed atmosphere and an unforgettable setting. Lausanne is very international, a nice city to live in with friendly people, and very quickly you feel at home. I would describe it as a charming small city – you have all the advantages of somewhere big (bars, clubs, restaurants, culture), but if you want peace and quiet, in only 5 minutes you are outside Lausanne.
