Andorra Psf

Why choose Andorra for your passive residence?

There are many reasons why people choose Andorra for their passive residence, but above all, there is one reason why they increasingly want to spend more time here.

The quality of life.

According to international indicators, people who take breaks in summer or during Christmas, those who escape, value Andorra above any other destination they have been to before.

An environment for a (truly) tranquil life

Andorra is synonymous with peace.

Due to its small size and low population density, a peaceful and relaxed atmosphere has been created.

Many people come to Andorra to escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life and immerse themselves in an atmosphere of calm and serenity.

Mountains? And beach life too!

I know that when I mention Andorra, you think of skiing and not bathing on the beach, but... how about if the beach is also an attraction?

Andorra is very close to coastal areas, which attracts many people.

The famous Costa Brava, with its beautiful beaches and charming coastal towns, is just a few hours' drive away.

You can also enjoy the proximity to Barcelona and the Costa Dorada, where you will find a wide variety of options to relax by the sea and enjoy the Mediterranean climate.

Furthermore, Andorra's central location in Europe allows you to easily explore other destinations.

For example, you can take weekend getaways to nearby cities such as Barcelona, Toulouse, or even the charming wine region of La Rioja in Spain.

The versatility and variety of experiences you can enjoy while in Andorra are truly exceptional.

Andorra, one of the safest countries in the world

When it comes to taking a break, safety is important.

(For sure, it's something you consider when choosing where to spend your time.)

In this regard, Andorra stands out as one of the safest countries in the world.

Its low crime rate and political and social stability provide a safe and reliable environment for residence.

These facts are recognized by UNODC statistics.
