What is it like to retire in Belgium?

"Belgium is a great place for retirees to enjoy their golden years. With its rich culture, beautiful scenery, and vibrant cities, there is something for everyone. Expats will find a welcoming and active community, with plenty of opportunities to socialize and make new friends. There are plenty of cultural attractions to explore, from the historic cities of Bruges and Ghent to the stunning countryside of the Ardennes. For those looking for recreation, there are plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy, such as hiking, cycling, and golf. For those looking for a more active nightlife, there are plenty of bars, clubs, and restaurants to explore. No matter what your interests, Belgium has something to offer retirees," explained one retiree living in Belgium.

"We wrote a book entitled "Retiring in Belgium - a Guide for Expats" packed with information for expats thinking of retiring in Belgium. In order to buy a copy (all proceed to go charity) link to the website www.chsbelgium.org," said one retiree in living in Brussels, Belgium.
