Retire in Greece

Do you dream of waking up to panoramic views of the sparkling Aegean blue?

Sunrise walks along palm-fringed beaches of multicolored seashells? Blinding white sand and dazzling shades of tranquil turquoise waters, against a backdrop of enthralling mountain landscape?

A sumptuous Greek yogurt with a drizzle of local honey and a handful of dry-roasted almonds from your neighbor’s yard?

It’s time to stop dreaming. Now is the time to embrace the breezy lifestyle of the Greeks.

Greece is the pleasant and affordable expat haven. Your hard-earned retirement savings will take you a lot further.


"In July 2020, the Greek government introduced an incentive program for foreign retirees who wish to transfer their tax residency to Greece. They can now benefit from a generous 7% flat tax rate on total foreign-source income without requirement to invest."

Live your myth.
