Crete Among The Best Places to Retire
Life and Investment Overseas is a website dedicated for those interested in retiring someplace else other than their home country. It’s geared mainly to English speakers, and has recently published its top 10 list of overseas places to retire.
They factored in such variables as climate, cost of living, language, entertainment and fun, healthcare, infrastructure, security, and taxs.
Crete has recently place #8 on the list, partly because Cretans often live to 100 years old thanks to the healthy Mediterranean diet. Thanks to the ongoing financial crisis, Crete is also extremely affordable for those with a source of income outside of Greece.
Here’s the top 10 list:
1: Algarve, Portugal
2: Valletta, Malta
3: Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
4: Cayo, Belize
5: Ljubljana, Slovenia
6: Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia
7: Playa del Carmen, Mexico
8: Crete, Greece
9: Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic
10: Ambergris Caye, Belize
