Retirees nowadays aren’t satisfied with simply stopping working and continuing to live at home. They want excitement. They want change. And one way to do that is to pack up and retire to Europe. But where to go? There are quite a few different countries to choose from in Europe, each with its own unique experience.
The team at Essex Removals have put together this travel guide of where to retire in Europe.
Spain is a delightful place to retire, city life combined with beautiful countryside. It has a great climate and is very welcome to expats, with low property prices and amazing Mediterranean sun, sea and sand. You can enjoy life in a thriving city like Barcelona, or somewhere a bit quieter such as Mallorca.
Retire to Italy for delicious food, amazing scenery and a warm climate. There is plenty of awe-inspiring scenery to enjoy and a wide variety of property types to choose from. Plus you can see all the sites, such as Pompeii, The Colosseum and the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Always dreamed of retiring somewhere near the ocean? Well, then Portugal is a great option for you. With gorgeous beaches, warm clear seas and great weather all year round, it’s no surprise this is such a popular retirement destination.
Malta is incredibly popular with retirees, offering property right next to the mediterranean sea and a rich history to explore. Combine that with great weather and amazing food to make the perfect spot to grow old in. Go scuba diving in crystal clear waters and explore all the archipelago has to offer.
If warm weather isn’t for you, Finland may be a great place for you to retire. The landscape is amazing, with vast forests and glittering lakes to explore. Be sure to check out the Northern Lights and enjoy the country that the World Health Organisation has declared has the cleanest air in the world. The cities are quaint and you can expect a very relaxed retirement there.
If you’re not ready to make the jump to more central Europe, Ireland is a great place to retire. Full of lush scenery for those who love to be outdoors, it’s a great place to retire. If you are a UK citizen you can enter and retire to Ireland with no problem. There’s plenty of big cities and a lot of countryside, so you can live a simple life in nature or bustling city life if you prefer.
