Living in Bulgaria: Quality of Life

02.7.2009

Why would anyone want to buy property in Bulgaria and then move permanently to live in the country? The answer may just lie in the quality of life which Bulgaria has to offer. It's all a question of individual preferences and quality of life is not really a tangible thing and not to be confused with standard of living which is different entirely. Indeed, you can be relatively "poor" living in a village compared with the standard someone from a city would apply but you can still have a far better quality of life.

This means for most people, quality of life combines a mix of physical and psychological factors, including less stress and a slower pace of life. It also includes:
natural good quality foods
low living costs
less cars on the road
good neighbours
decent schools
pleasure in living
better health
lower crime rate
family values
less debt

We take a look at Bulgaria and see what is has to offer you if you are looking for a high quality of life. We also talk to one couple about their personal experience of living in the UK and how they bought a Bulgarian property and now live in the country full time.
Wikipedia describes quality of life as "the degree off well-being felt by an individual or group of people." To even meet the basic ingredients in the mix of quality of life, everyone needs food, shelter and a level of decent health. Beyong this, each person's quality of life depends upon the degree to which 'wants' are met. Everyone wants different things but in the main, the more that are met on the above list, the higher the quality of life.

One may think that the quality of life in Bulgaria, it being a much poorer country overall than the UK, would mean it would rate very badly in quality of life terms. The Economist Intelligence Unit's survey across some one hundred countries, placed Bulgaria around half way but interestingly the UK only came in at 30th itself! There has also been significant progress in Bulgaria over the last few years, with many more people realising their 'wants'. The country also enjoys the legacy of the Communists social provisions, with good education, housing and access to statge health care.
