Greece listed as one of the world’s best places to retire in 2024




Greece has been chosen among the best places in the world for those who wish to retire in 2024, by International Living.

The network, which includes expert expats across the globe, mentions that the Index is informed by hundreds of opinions and real-life experiences—information—compiled trusted sources in the best retirement destinations in the world.

According to the annual Global Retirement Index findings, Greece secures the seventh spot globally. Costa Rica tops the list while Portugal, Mexico, Spain and Ecuador are also above Greece.

International Living notes that housing costs in Greece are estimated to be up to 75% lower than those in the US. Additionally, the cost of living in Greece falls between 30% and 50% below that in the United States, ensuring relatively modest everyday expenses. The ancient history, the sun-splashed islands and the healthy cuisine are also presented as key factors for visitors who choose Greece to retire.

Suellen Curkendall, who recently relocated with her husband to Syros Island, said to International Living “We opted for Greece because it stands among the few countries offering a Golden Visa option tied to property ownership rather than requiring a substantial investment in a business. Coupled with milder winters, this sealed the deal for us.”
