Rolle
Rolle is a municipality in the Canton of Vaud in Switzerland. It is the seat of the district of the same name, and is located on the northwestern shore of Lake Geneva (Lac Léman) between Nyon and Lausanne. Rolle is approximately 30 kilometers (19 mi) northeast of Geneva (Genève) in the La Côte wine-growing region, and commands spectacular views of the high Alps. It is also the location for the main campus of Institut Le Rosey, one of the most prestigious boarding schools in the world. Notable former residents of Rolle, and alumni of Le Rosey, include: Aga Khan IV, King Albert II of Belgium, King Baudouin I of Belgium, King Fuad II of Egypt, King Ntare V of Burundi, Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavī, and Prince Rainier III of Monaco. Rolle is also the birthplace of Frédéric-César de la Harpe (1754–1838), who was the tutor of Alexander I of Russia and was largely responsible for the independence of the Canton of Vaud from the Bernese. Rolle is recently gaining popularity as a Technology company haven in Switzerland. Yahoo! moved its European headquarters from UK to Rolle in 2008. Cisco Systems also has a decent sized Research and Development site here. Filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard has his office in Rolle.
