We always knew, but it's nice to be confirmed by a big news outlet like the BBC. According to them, Malta fits amongst other countries such as Spain and Portugal as well as Ecuacor and Panama. Malta does not only offer 300 days of sunshine per year, but also great tax benefits, state of the art health system and a low cost of living. English is one of the official languages, so that won't be a problem either.
In case you are considering it, Lion Malta is a great starting point to find that perfect house to retire at. For instance, there's beautiful villa's in Madliena, spacious apartments in St Paul's Bay or nice old farmhouses in Rabat. So whatever property you are looking for, the search starts here!
