Retirement is something we all look forward to - an opportunity to do all those things we longed to do whilst we were busy working or bringing up the family.
However, if you are about to retire or are already in retirement, you may be finding it increasingly difficult to fulfil your retirement dreams. The increasing cost of living, council taxes, falling annuity rates or low interest rates could be affecting your savings.
Thus, a move to a hospitably and still cheaper country, in regards to living costs, such as our island of Crete can give you the freedom enjoying your life and living from your pension or savings.
Crete's cost of living is one of the lowest in Europe but the quality of life is the highest. All health care and social benefits are the same as the rest of the European Community. The diet in Crete is mostly of organic produce and the average longevity of life is the highest in Europe.
And with the introduction of Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP's) in 2006 there are many reasons why investing in properties can help you fund your retirement other than in the form of a pension.
