The Simple Secret To Living In Europe
US$1,500 A Month (Or Less)

Dear Live and Invest Overseas Reader,

If you think living in Europe is out of reach for you…

Think again.

I’m serious—you have more options for affordable Old-World charm than you might ever imagine:

Alpine villages, lush vineyards, Mediterranean islands…

Fresh markets, undiscovered local eateries, Michelin-star cuisine…

Outdoor cafés, famous museums, quaint villages…

Europe has something for everyone and every budget.

Better yet, in 9 of Europe’s greatest places to live, you can live the lifestyle you’ve always wanted for as little as US$1,500 a month or even less.

These are 9 havens where you can truly embrace la joie de vivre or la dolce vita on a budget.

Indeed, affordable overseas living options are NOT limited to only Latin America and Asia… and elite destinations are NOT way beyond your reach.

Of course, you’ll need a little guidance…

But, once armed with the right insights and the right destination, you’ll be amazed at how easy it actually is to enjoy the good life in Europe at a cost you can easily afford…

You Won’t Believe
The Hidden Gems Within Your Reach…

I can show you how to thrive in the world’s most beautiful and culture-rich havens…

Budget-friendly treasures are lying in wait—like unearthed diamonds—for those lucky enough to find out about them.

It’s a fact:

Europe does not offer the shoestring bargain havens of Latin America and Asia.

But living affordably here is actually an even more astounding bargain when you consider how much MORE Europe has to offer…

The combination of architecture, climates, and history is, frankly, impossible anywhere else in the world.

Europe offers up every lifestyle you can think of…

And, in 9 of its greatest places to live, you can live the lifestyle you’ve always wanted for as little as US$1,500 a month or even less.

Your housing cost will be—by far—your largest expense when living abroad…

But, in the places I have in mind for you, your rent could be cheaper than back home:

  • Seaside apartments of 110m2 (big enough for two bedrooms) regularly list for €500 to €700 a month (less than US$900)… and hillside village apartments a little further inland go for €300 to €550…
  • In one place we love, a 4-bedroom house close to a golf course and with stunning sea views has a price tag of €850 monthly…
  • What about cosmopolitan living on the Mediterranean? Our top pick here has a listing for a tidy 2-bedroom, minutes from the beach, for €778 a month… and a studio in the quaint historic city center for €650…

Prefer to buy? You might not believe the kinds of properties available to you…

  • A 65m2 apartment with sea views for €95,000
  • An 80m2 condo with 2 bedrooms, a terrace, and views of the Adriatic Sea for €200,000 euros… and you can rent it out for at least €600 a week, when you’re not around…
  • A fully restored 100-year-old, 3-bedroom house built from stone, with two vaulted-ceiling cantinas (cellars)— not far from the sea and near the ski slopes—for €115,000
  • With citrus, olive, and carob orchards, and some of the most unique beaches in the world, all nearby… you can grab studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments from €70,000 to €100,000 in our #1 pick for overseas retirement in the world
Our choice for “World’s Best Retirement Haven” offers an affordable and active lifestyle, plus easy foreign residency and a 2nd passport…

A Simple Life By The Coast In Europe

How affordable is Europe?

Despite being near the ocean, the cost of living in one of our top countries is, on average, 32.5% lower than in America.

And rent? It’s a whopping 42.6% cheaper despite the fact that most people live within 50 miles off the coast…

 Basic apartment, About a 15-minute walk to the water
 Public Transportation
 Monthly, unlimited pass for the bus—takes you all over, including cities and beaches
 Total monthly utility costs
 Cable/Phone/Internet bundle
 Subscription for WiFi and TV
 Dining out at a restaurant for a couple—twice a week
 Food and groceries
 For fresh, whole foods. Imported, frozen, and processed  foods will cost you more
 Monthly expenses for a couple

*Currency exchange rate as of July 2021.

So, what’s the secret here?

It’s all about avoiding tourist traps.

Indeed, I know of dozens of places that often look and feel like similar locations that are pricier and more well-known…

All the better for you that they haven’t yet been “discovered”—that their names aren’t yet as familiar as their celebrity equivalents. These “alternate Tuscany” options comes at a fraction of the cost of the original.

Dare to feed your dreams—and plans—with these under-the-radar jewels…

Aphrodite’s Birth Place
Is Under The Radar These Days…

An ancient place going back 10,000 years, the entire town here is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

For much less than the usual Mediterranean destinations, you’ll get the same breathtaking coasts and fascinating museums, plus impressive mountains and vast forests to explore—it’s an outdoorsman’s treat…

And, with more than 300 sunny days a year, you’ll be able to spend as much time as you want enjoying Mother Nature’s best.

You’ll also be pleased to learn that this is one of the safest places in the world, and it was all once under British rule… so English is spoken by more than 3/4 of the locals.

Irresistible Charm And A Colorful And Fascinating Past…

Imagine yourself nestled between patchwork fields and crashing waves in an intimate setting where you can’t help from dropping your jaw…

A place that never stopped laughing and shaking its fist at adversity…

But instead danced, sang, and told lively stories about it.

In this little-known haven of history, culture, and dramatic landscapes and seascapes, it’s the welcoming people and relaxing and fun-loving way of life that can’t help but capture your heart…

The fact that English is the official language is simply the cherry on top.

A Pre-Roman Walled City, Vineyards, And 300+ Days Of Sun

As legend has it, a very wise woman once saved a lovely and history-rich city from a tribe holding it under siege.

With the help of the other starving inhabitants, she fattened a pig with the city’s last scraps of food, threw it over the walls, and thereby convinced the attackers the siege was in vain.

Today, fresh food and local wine are abundant—thanks to the area’s great weather, which also makes it inviting to spend lots of time outdoors.

What’s more, it’s only a short drive to seaside pleasures, mountain skiing, and urban cultural attractions.


Medieval Hill Villages, Endless Golden Beaches, And Thermal Spas

Picture it… tranquil living, only a couple of hours from one of the world’s most historic and tantalizing cities…

Women in pinafores chatter and laugh in chairs drawn into a circle near the village square. They string and braid onions into long strands. Scarlet peppers hang from balconies, while boys play soccer in the street below. Shoppers fill mesh bags at open-air markets.

And it’s only a short drive to hiking trails, wildflowers, thermal spas, and the best city beach in Europe.

With its tall mountain range and sandy coast so close to each other, you could go snow skiing and surfing in the same day.

Choosing your corner of this paradise is the only “dilemma”… views of hillside terraces, mountains, medieval cities, or sea views… or all at once!

The Best Climate In The World—And
Tax-Free Pensions…

The Romans, Moors, and a few other tribes took their turns inhabiting the historic walls in yet another prime location with all the best that the past and present have to offer.

This area boasts one of the most stable climates in the world.

The ocean it looks out on is not so much one of howling winds and pounding surf…

But rather gentle sea breezes, white sand, secluded coves, and beautiful limestone formations.

Every day’s a celebration for all five senses—given attractions like the cobbled streets, whitewashed houses, and locally produced seafood, figs, olives, and carob.

And being Europe’s most attractive tax-free destination means indulging yourself even more in this setting….

Simple Living In An Historic City With Cultural And Artistic Passion

One compact but well-laid out city with its own fabulous beach presents a charming blend of pre-Roman and modernist architecture.

Newcomers enjoy the mix of narrow streets, quaint shops, unique neighborhoods, and buildings and green spaces insightfully designed with people’s needs in mind.

It’s a city that caresses the past, savors evolving trends, and embraces the creativity and technology of the future.

It’s a prime example of a big European city where you can afford to live well.

“Why Not!?”
Try Mediterranean Living On This Island…

On one of our favorite islands anywhere, the green landscape is nearly as brilliant as the surrounding blue waters of the Mediterranean.

It’s hilly here, with rocky cliffs that drop down onto some of the most dramatic coasts you’ve ever seen…

Along with its unrivaled scenery, this place is famous for its authenticity and maintaining its village way of life—they don’t cater to tourists here like other parts.

Because of this, here you’ll find some of the best restaurants and also some of the friendliest people. Our contact on the ground here tells us, “The response to any question or favor I’ve asked has been either ‘Why not!?’ or ‘No problem!’”

Of course, these are just a tiny sampling of the cities and towns you’ll find within the group of 9 European countries I want to show you…

The variety of settings you could call home in Europe today—even within the borders of only 9 countries—is vast.

These are affordable and uniquely life-changing places to spend time.

We Did Not Intend To Stay For 20 Years
“We did not intend to stay for 20 years, but sometimes things just turn out that way.”

-Susie Hines-Walters,
United States

Picture yourself stepping out your door every day onto cobblestone streets or alongside a vineyard. Does the very thought set your heart pounding?

Or is that little “too good to be true” voice in your head kicking in as you consider a move to Europe?

Just consider some of the savings and bargains that quality Old World living can offer. Imagine…

  • Internet, TV, and phone (including international calls) for only €40 euros a month…
  • A deluxe scenic picnic anywhere you choose—with world-class wine, bread, and cheese for €10 per person. (You can get fresh-baked loafs of bread for less than €1!)
  • Numerous little-known restaurants where, for €6 to €13, you can enjoy two to three tasty courses—and often bread, wine, and coffee too…
  • Stocking up on quality wine as cheap as €4 per bottle—these same wines can cost US$10 or more back in the States…
  • €5 to rent a beach chair and an umbrella on a famous Mediterranean beach… or €1.50 to access manicured, fully-appointed private beaches along Europe’s most pristine lake…
  • Free entrance to local outdoor concerts and festivals, as well as famous parks and gardens—and even to world-class museums and exhibits on certain days…
  • Skiing the “other Alps” and paying only €10 to €15 for lift passes…
  • Playing 18-holes of golf with snow-capped mountain views for only €38 euros…

Look, we get it…

You enjoy some of Europe’s best city living for only a few hundred dollars a week (or less)…

Europe has never been the place to seek out the world’s least expensive overseas living options.

However, you’ll be surprised at the number of affordable areas awaiting you in Europe.

In fact, be prepared to be overwhelmed at how you DON’T have to come up with a king’s ransom to enjoy European charm and culture in any of the recommended destinations.

Yes, the really good news is that you CAN afford to…

How To Live Well (On The Cheap)
In The “Other” South Of France

To live like a king in Europe, you need only know the local insights…

For instance, the French country life has long been a top-of-the-list choice for capturing joie de vivre.

But, check the price tag on a big-name place like Provence, and you might need to rethink your budget.

Not so for one of our “other” South of France suggestions in France, Carcassonne.

Here, where you can live a fairy tale life among medieval castles and lavender fields, a couple could embrace French country life in a medieval setting for only about US$1,600 a month

  • Rent: €400 for a small, standalone house with a yard…
  • Utilities: €100 to power a medium-sized home…
  • Telephone/Cable/Internet: €40, including no-limit data plans and toll-free calls to North America and the rest of Europe…
  • Groceries: €410 to supply three square meals every day with fresh, whole foods (and plenty of beer and wine)…
  • Transportation: €60 for two monthly bus passes…
  • Entertainment: €300 euros—this is, of course, highly variable…

TOTAL: A budget of €1,310 a month for two people living well in the French countryside


Budgets, Taxes, Language:
Here’s The Truth About Living In Europe…

I hear it all the time from readers:

Dream on! There’s just no way I could afford Europe.

Think about it: the vast majority of the people who live in these “expensive” places are not rich at all…

Well, contrary to what many North Americans think, Europe has always offered Old World seekers a number of affordable options.

I know, I know… even if you’ve been to Europe for work or vacation already, it can be hard to wrap your head around the fact that it’s an affordable, even cheap, place to live…

But just think about it for a second:

Hundreds of millions of middleclass folks have lived in Europe their entire lives…

How are they are getting by without big salaries and overflowing nest eggs?

It’s because they’re not living as tourists.

They’re shopping in local markets, they’re skipping the museum restaurants, and they’re certainly paying much less than you might for a hotel room or an AirBnB.

Of course, anyone can learn to pinch their pennies… but what about the legal side?

Again, I think you’ll be pleased…

You see, these countries only need you to earn the bare minimum to enjoy life within their borders. In fact, many residency programs require you to earn the equivalent of around just US$1,500 a month—that’s about the current average U.S. Social Security check.

But it can be much cheaper in key places. In Spain, for instance, about US$950 a month is all you’ll need to qualify. Many places in famously low-cost havens in Asia and Latin America require more than that…

So, I say again: your dream of living in Europe is alive and well.

Especially when you consider that many of the greatest benefits living here don’t cost you a single cent.

Let’s see…

What else is keeping you from enjoying a life in Europe in retirement?

I’ve heard all of the excuses…

Absolutely Smitten

“I am absolutely smitten by the European lifestyle, and we don’t even drink!”

-Robert S.,
United States

“I’ll be taxed to death if I live in Europe.”

Tax treaties, tax benefits, and the lack of states taxes means you could actually pay LESS in Europe…

Do the math, and you’ll find that your tax bill is unlikely to change at all after a move here.

That’s partly because the havens I have in mind for you have tax treaties with many countries, including the United States and Canada.

Plus, you don’t have to worry about state taxes.

On the day-to-day side, making things a little easier is the value added tax (VAT) throughout the EU. Very simply stated, VAT is a tax that is already included in the price of most goods you’ll buy—if something costs €1, that’s all you’re going to pay.

Obviously, you’ll encounter some new taxes, as well as some familiar ones that likely cost more than back home. The entire transaction cost of buying and selling property, for example, is more expensive here than elsewhere.

But they’re all manageable, and we can show you everything you need to know to reduce their costs when legally possible.

I’m Thrilled

“It’s tempting to continue living the way you’ve been living. It’s easy… and it can be very frightening to think about creating a whole new life for yourself in a foreign place.”

“But that fear can keep us from acting on chances for fun, for adventure, and for possible profit.”

“All I can tell you now is that I’m thrilled… it has been one of the most satisfying experiences of my life.”

-Jay, United States

“I’m too old to learn a foreign language.”

The English language is the lingua franca of Europe… but try to learn at least a few new words…

First, you’re never too old…

In fact, learning a new language is now an accepted practice for successfully fending off the symptoms of Alzheimer’s… so working that noodle in your head on some new words has a double benefit.

Of course, Europe is a very educated region of the world, English is the new lingua franca… and, frankly, they get Netflix here…

That means most young locals speak English, and many professionals such as lawyers and doctors know it.

Plus, few places in the world have as strong and as established a foreign English-speaking community as Europe. Needless to say, you’ll find a giant expat population here.

I wholeheartedly suggest that you try to learn the language of your new country, but you can certainly get by without it.

Weaving Dreams…

“Kathleen, just wanted to tell you that everything I get from you is like a ray of hope. I see it and am reminded that I still have options to control my future…

“Thank you for the service you provide.”

-Layne B.,
United States

Think of Europe as the vault of crown jewels of overseas havens…

Are you really willing to miss out on the jewels well within your price range right now?

To give up your dream on Old World living?

This opportunity is simply too tempting to ignore…

Of course, you need plenty of good information and insight, and you have important decisions to make…

And, mostly, you just want to make sure you get it all right when it comes to organizing a move to Europe—and your reinvented life there.

Let’s face it… the whole thing would be very daunting—even overwhelming—if you were doing it all on your own.

But you don’t have to.

Instead, you can tap into honest and current information, insights, and advice, all in one place…

This is not crazy!

“I loved hearing stories of expats…

“These are people who actually walked the walk and show people like me that this is not crazy.”

—Ellen Zucker, United States

“We Knew We Could
Never Afford To Live Like This In America…”

In some places in Europe, such as our top choice in Portugal, you can live cheaper than back home…

Allen Freeman drinks his coffee on the spacious balcony every morning.

He looks out at the aqua-blue waters of the North Atlantic…

And listens to the tide come in over and over again, closing his eyes to take in the sounds and smells of the incoming breeze.

“We knew we had to retire overseas,” he says.

“It’s cheaper and easier. And with all the chaos back home, we were ready to take that step.

“It was the right time. We just… didn’t know where.”

For years, he and his wife Linda had researched far and wide for a place to call home…

The European options they’d heard about were almost an afterthought… until they realized it was cheaper and safer than back home.

Indeed, despite being one of Europe’s top destinations, they learned that Portugal had everything they always wanted…

“We are in gorgeous Silves, nestled in the Algarve region. A little walk and we’re in Old Town, where we can take a coffee break, get some sun, and avoid tourism.

“There’s a castle, a cathedral, museums, tons of beaches…

“Having our own villa a few blocks from the beach is a dream we couldn’t afford in America.”

Here on Europe’s western-most coast, Allen and Linda can live the retirement they’ve always wanted and then some.

Former teachers, they had never led expensive lives, and they weren’t ready to start in retirement.

But what they weren’t prepared for was how cheap Europe actually could be…

In the Europe On Demand Video Program, we’ll discuss your best options in Portugal, and dozens of others where you can live Old World or Mediterranean life at a discount…

You Are Straight To The Point

A Quick Guide To Living Better
For Less In Europe…

Nowhere else in the world can you stretch your retirement dollars to get the quality and richness of lifestyle you get in Europe…

The Europe On Demand Video Program will give you exact advice you need to narrow the search for cosmopolitan and picturesque Old World living that suits your lifestyle and your budget.

Discover charming homes—the kinds you’ve dreamt of—that you never really thought could be yours. Check out dream settings in Europe where your basic monthly living costs (including rent) can be €1,500 or less.

Options include…

  • City or village living in a medieval setting, surrounded by vineyards and Cathar castles—with both the Pyrenees and the Mediterranean nearby…
  • Cosmopolitan lifestyle with regional historic richness… centrally located apartments in either of two up-and-coming neighborhoods in a city that’s both vibrant, quaint, and always opening its arms to expats…
  • At a stone’s throw from—or even on—the turquoise and cobalt waters of the Adriatic, including apartments near both sea and hillside terraces…
  • Bridging two continents, one of the world’s oldest cities with apartment living in a variety of neighborhoods… where you can choose bustling activity or serene panoramas

And, as you might guess, the value of a home in Europe—and the cost of living in any given setting there—is in your hands, depending on some personal choices and tastes.

You’ll really appreciate and enjoy the bargain your European home can be, as you keep in mind…

  • The rich quality of life surrounding you—just being in Europe is in itself priceless
  • Just as anywhere—big city living costs more than small city living costs more than rural living…
  • Some cities just cost more than others—regardless of size… Paris, for example, is among the world’s most expensive in some parts… while in less central areas it can cost less than many midwestern U.S. cities…
  • Even prime urban real estate has some options that aren’t as out of range as you might think… (you’ll find one area that’s an unexpected bargain, only a few minutes on foot from the River Seine)…
  • Just like anywhere you live… cost of living depends on lifestyle choices beyond the fixed costs of housing, taxes, and utilities…

Indeed, personal lifestyle choices—such as eating out, entertainment, and other nonessential spending—dramatically impact a monthly budget.

Also, if a move to Europe includes trying to recreate the total North American lifestyle left behind… well, let’s just say that won’t be cheap.

Downsizing the amount of possessions is a must if you’re heading to a big city here.

European living can be surprisingly affordable… as long as you apply a little “When in Rome…” to your lifestyle.

How To Spend LESS In Europe
Than Latin America…

I anticipated a big jump in our cost of living when we moved to Paris.

But life in France turned out to be more affordable than what we paid each month in Panama:

  •  In Latin America, a car is more or less a requirement. That means paying for a car, and then paying for insurance, maintenance, and gas. In Paris and most cities in Europe, where walking is a free pleasure and the metro is cheap, our transportation costs dropped to nearly zero
  • City living in Europe means living in a smaller home. Practically speaking, it meant I couldn’t go on shopping sprees to fill spaces and rooms with new furniture and bric-a-brac. It also means I didn’t need the same help with household chores, nor the cost of a maid
  • Europe prides itself on fresh, whole foods. Aside from being healthier, the open-market food in Europe is much cheaper than processed or frozen foods popular in many parts of the world…
  • In Europe, your utility bills will plummet. As I said before, you’re living in a smaller dwelling. But in Panama, we also ran the A/C nearly 100% of the time thanks to year-round sun and warm weather. With more temperate climates, the majority of Europeans opt for fans over air conditioning…
  • Some of the best entertainment in Europe is cheap or free. Whether its people watching at a café, relaxing on a beach, heading to the museum on monthly free-days, or reading a book in the park, Europe boasts plenty of free activities to keep you happy…

Since its inception in 2012, Monia and her team have helped hundreds of clients from all over the world buy homes in Abruzzo, and, today, Abruzzo Rural Property is one of the fastest-growing real estate agencies in Abruzzo.

I Promise You’ll Have No Regrets…

First of all, your satisfaction with the Europe On Demand Video Program is 100% guaranteed.

If you’re not happy with the program, just let us know and I’ll send 100% of your money back to you.

But that’s not exactly what I mean with “no regrets”…

Part of our agenda with the Europe On Demand Video Program is to give you the full story… the pros and the cons.

Did the readers I’ve helped find their spot abroad have their down days?

Of course they did…

One past attendee told me recently that she had the mother of all meltdowns after she and her husband packed up all their boxes and were getting ready to sell their beloved Illinois home. But, the next morning she picked herself up and followed through with her move…

“The best thing about our new life now is that we have no alarm clocks. We take our time in the morning and enjoy a leisurely breakfast. I’ll do some writing in the afternoon and exercise in the evening. There is no routine—and it’s wonderful.”

You’ll never know how wonderful your life could be unless you go and see.

And what about those readers who decided Europe was not for them after all?

I’ve heard from several, and not a single one regretted the experience. In fact, many of these folks told me the only regret was not doing it sooner, when they were younger and healthier.

I urge you to give yourself the best start—sooner than later—with my Europe On Demand Video Program.
