Once again, it is the paradisiacal beaches of Mauritius and the variety of nature that can seduce here.

“The stability of the country is reassuring, and the inhabitants are French-speaking,” says Paul Delahoutre.

More than a million French retirees live abroad. If this choice is above all personal, some countries attract more than others. Mauritius is mostly favoured by retirees. The Covid-19 pandemic has not dampened all desires to retire outside of France.

The criteria of the list are weighted based on their significance. Thus, the cost of living represents 20% of the final grade, the climate 15% and the infrastructure 5%. Moreover, to determine a score for each of these criteria, meetings were organized with future retirees to identify their motivations and challenges to retire abroad.

If there is no real surprise in this ranking, Paul Delahoutre notes however that the Covid has changed the situation a little. “European countries come before the others. With the pandemic, retirees want to be sure that they will be able to return easily to France, but also that they will benefit from a good healthcare system”, he stated.
