Strong Dollar Makes Living, Retiring, And Traveling In Europe A Bargain

Europe Is On Sale

If Europe is your fantasy, this is the opportunity of your lifetime. Right now, thanks to a weak euro and a surging U.S. dollar, you have more options for realizing your dreams of a new life in the Old World than in a decade or longer. Collapsed property markets and recessed economies mean that both the cost of living and of buying Euro-digs all your own currently qualify as extraordinary bargains across the Continent.

A 65-square-meter apartment with sea views for 95,000 euros… an 80-square-meter apartment with two bedrooms, a terrace, and a view of the Adriatic for 200,000 euros (this place could be rented out for 600 euros a week in season)… a fully restored 100-year-old stone three-bedroom house with two vaulted cantinas (cellars), near the ski slopes and not far from the sea, for 115,000 euros… apartments with citrus, olive, and carob orchards plus the inviting beaches of the Atlantic nearby from as little as 70,000 euros…

Prefer to rent? Then consider seaside apartments of 110 square meters available for 500 to 700 euros a month… or hillside village apartments a little farther inland for 300 to 550 euros monthly…

For many, Europe offers the crown jewels of overseas retirement and lifestyle havens, and right now these fairy-tale options are more available to you than they’ve ever been. Not only is Europe on sale right now for anyone with a U.S. dollar nest egg, but it’s also easier to access and more retiree-friendly.
From France (including Paris) to Spain, from Ireland to Croatia, from Italy to Portugal, and beyond, this part of the world offers uniquely life-changing and irresistibly romantic retirement choices. Imagine stepping out your door every day onto cobblestoned streets, wandering winding roads to medieval village town squares, spending your Saturday afternoons visiting nearby vineyards…

No other region in the world offers the history, the culture, or the lifestyle available in Europe. And right now I’m not exaggerating when I say that you don’t have to come up with a king’s ransom to live happily ever after in this timeless land. With a budget of as little as 1,500 euros per month, you have many realistic and tempting lifestyle options, including…

City or village living in a medieval setting, surrounded by vineyards and Cathar castles, with both the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean nearby…

Cosmopolitan living in neighborhoods that are both vibrant and quaint…

Coastal living a stone’s throw from or even on the turquoise and cobalt waters of the Adriatic…

Nowhere else in the world can you embrace the lifestyle on offer in Europe. And the jump-up-and-down good news right now is that even retirees with modest retirement nest eggs can afford the best that this part of the world has to offer.

This is why we challenged our Euro-editors to identify the six best places to think about reinventing your life in the Old World right now and then asked them to prepare detailed guides to living and retiring in each spot, including all the practical advice you’d need to make any one of these top European retirement havens your home. We’ve bundled all six comprehensive reports into one resource, our brand-new Discover Europe Kit.
