Re: General property buying question(s)

A friend who was Senior Manager in big insurance firm told me about 20 years ago he would not buy anything in the Alps at the time. We all thought he was a bit silly and dramatic, but now, with permafrost going- I think he was spot on.

I am a mountain guy and sunny beaches don't appeal to me. I like the peace, solitude and breathtaking beauty of the mountains. Maybe I need to reconsider retiring in Southern Europe!

Permafrost will definitely impact the Alps, but they won't all crumble in my lifetime. So I could technically avoid areas with potential issues but my budget makes it a lot harder.


From my POV-
- Retiring in the Alps = Win
- Retiring in Southern Europe = Draw
- Moving back to UK = Failure
