Most of us are aware of the importance of planning ahead for our retirement years. There is usually a focus on securing the financial side of retirement, but it is just as important to think about where you are going to live. Many UK residents wish to make the move abroad to enjoy their later years in a warmer climate. Mainland Europe has long been a popular retirement destination, particularly the Mediterranean coastal regions, but now there is a growing attraction to Cape Verde for retired life.
There are many natural reasons which make Cape Verde an attractive retirement destination for people from Europe and the UK. From an economic perspective, the low cost of living is enhanced by the very preferable exchange rate, but it is the quality of life here which offers the most appeal. The warm climate is enjoyed throughout the year, the beautiful landscapes of the islands are untouched by development and the Cape Verde lifestyle is laid back, relaxed and positive.
It is fair to say that the Cape Verde offers the perfect requirements for a pleasant retired life – a wonderful climate and affordable living set against a safe, politically and socially stable background. The value of retirement in Cape Verde is appreciated across Europe, with the topic recently being discussed in the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce.
As positive as the outlook is for people who are planning to retire to this beautiful part of the world, in real terms the only way to be sure is to visit the place and see it for yourself. Having a Cape Verde vacation will give you the perfect chance to experience all the islands have to offer and help you to make up your mind about whether you’d like to live there.
Each passing year sees more people take holidays in the Cape Verde with a view to deciding whether it’s a place they would like to retire to, and many people from throughout Europe and the UK decide to take the plunge and make the move. If you are currently considering the idea of spending retired life in a different country, a Cape Verde vacation will give you a glimpse of what that life can be like.
