A French castle where rooms are available for SIPP investment has been recognised as one of ’30 of the most beautiful castles in Europe’ by the website neatdesigns.net
The castle forms part of a luxury sipp approved hotel resort and extensive renovation has paid off in attracting the attention of a respected design website which attracts 50,000 unique visitors a month.
The castle was selected among other examples from France, the UK, Germany, Romania and Italy. The castles include a number built in the Middle Ages and others from the 18th and 19th Centuries.
The website receives 50,000 unique visitors each month, so thousands have already read of and seen Château de a Cazine’s beauty.
Château De La Cazine is recognised as number 26 in Europe’s top 30 most beautiful castles.
Staying on the subject of France, the country has been selected as one of the best places to retire after it was revealed that 71% of UK workers think they will be worse off in retirement.
Despite UK pensioners being on the whole better off today than they have been in the past according to the IFS, there is still the feeling that standard pension products alone will not be enough to provide a comfortable retirement.
The benefits a pensioner currently gets including Free TV licenses, winter fuel allowances and free transport as well as income tax reductions highlight might help out in some ways, however the cost of living continues to rise and inflation remains a threat as soon as meaningful economic recovery returns.
Sadly Britain is regarded as one of the loneliest places in Europe in which to grow old according to charity WRVS. However France meanwhile has emerged as a contender for one of the best countries to retire in according to the OECD.
Their Better Life Index 2012 which compares well-being by country based on 11 topics which include material living conditions and quality of life has revealed that 73% of French people are more satisfied with their lives which is above the OECD average of 72%.
73% of people in France said that they have more positive experiences in an average day (feelings of rest, pride in accomplishment) than negative ones (worry, sadness, boredom).
It also appears that pensioners in France have a better chance of living longer. In terms of health, life expectancy in France is almost 81 years. This is also higher than the OECD average of 80 years while on the housing front, 91% of people say they are satisfied with their current housing situation, higher than the OECD average of 87%.
