Retire to Crete

When you are approaching the age of retirement, if you find yourself feeling low, remember that you'll be able to do plenty that wasn't possible before.
After an active working life, you will be free to spend your time as you like and to retire wherever you want -- speaking of which, you couldn't do much better than retire in Greece.
Greece and especially Crete, will offer you the best of everything when it comes to a low cost of living, beautiful surroundings that are steeped in history, friendly people.
Larger cities such as Salonica and Athens are rather more expensive.
You'll find housing relatively cheap here and it certainly does add to the sense of history here.
Greece is also gaining ground over other European countries as the cheapest place in which to retire. This is widely regarded as a government initiative to popularize Crete as a destination for retirement.
It is here that you will be able to find the best of bread, wine, beer and olive oil.
Living in Crete, you can have your fill of wonderful sights in locations (for more read relative articles here) just a few of the numerous places that you can visit again and again if you should choose to retire here.
So remember -- if you have always wanted to live in a location that would offer you a low cost of living, surround you with scenic beauty and a sense of history, you have found it in Crete.
