From the Students

Sharing a room is a great experience because you get to meet really different people. We have 57 girls in the house, and we have people from all over the world. I've had roommates of so many nationalities — Chinese, Polish, Indian — and it's so interesting living with a girl from a completely different background. Roommates often turn into really good friends, and it's a very special relationship.

House History

Exgterior Image of Le Cerf

Having wound your way up the scenic mountain route towards Aiglon, Le Cerf is easily overlooked as the first school building you pass because it blends naturally into lower Chesières. Le Cerf is one of four boarding school houses for senior girls, accommodating 45+ students. It underwent a major refurbishment that was completed in 2018. Tastefully decorated and providing spacious areas for living, dining and unwinding, the house still retains the charm of the former family-run Hotel du Cerf. Aiglon initially rented the site in response to growing demand for girls' boarding in 2006, and it was purchased in 2013.
