Re: Retirement and house hunting

The other point about Spain or the Algarve is that it can work out cheaper for a pensioner than living in the UK. In the long British winters, we spend eye watering amounts of our pension on just keeping warm. In a southern climate we will not be doing that. However, I suppose the cost of medical care insurance will have to be factored in to expenses. I have no idea about the cost of groceries in that part of the world.
