Buying property abroad for retirement
The south of France
Retirees with a small budget can own a piece of France's world-class tradition and culture, says Peddicord. "Languedoc is a low-cost region in the south with the French country lifestyle that is a dream to many," she says. Village homes and historical farm properties in need of restoration can cost between $150 and $160 per square foot.
Everyday expenses are still higher in Languedoc than in Latin America, so Peddicord estimates a couple will spend $2,000 monthly. "Still, it's much cheaper than Provence," she adds.
