There are many airports and forms of transport to get around Greece and travel to different countries, so travelling around is still a possibility for you if you decide to retire to Greece. There is also the advantage that the weather is warm during the summer months and winters can sometimes be mild. There are also may English speakers in Greece, which makes the moving process a lot easier to begin with, whilst you get to grips with learning the language.
