Awhile ago, we talked about choosing the best places to retire and the things to consider if you plan to retire abroad. Today, while I am looking for the best places to retire in Europe (it doesn’t mean I want to retire in Europe), I found a good and useful information.

If you want to retire with a European lifestyle, check this out.


According to the Europe’s top 5 affordable retirement havens are France, Spain, Malta, Italy and Portugal.

Best Places to Retire in Europe


Retire in Paris and Provence. The cost of living in these places and the price of real estate properties here are reasonable. You might get cheap rentals or houses here at a low price and still you can experience high quality of life.

According to InternationalLiving.Com’s report written by Gigi Griffis; “A couple can live well on the Maltese island of Gozo for about $2,000 a month including rent and healthcare.”. This is awesome since the healthcare is included. Retire in the best European Island.


Choose to Retire in Apulia. Discover the undiscovered places by North American Tourists.


Pay less for things in Portugal. It is a value proposition. In Portugal, English language is widely spoken. According to Eoin Baissett, you can live well in Portugal just for spending $1,600 to $1,700 per month.

Europe is rich in art and culture. You will enjoy your retirement life by discovering what is in Europe, the arts, cultures, music, food and the quality of living.

Who loves European countries? Almost many people love to see the beauty of Europe. Some people prefer to visit Europe in few months for traveling experience and some people love to live the rest of their life in this continent. If I will retire in Europe (although it’s not on my retirement plan, for the sake of this discussion), I choose to retire in Italy. Don’t ask me why. I just like to discover more!
