Retire to Norfolk lovely place, thats where i plan to retire in..............42years time lol
I think Hampshire would be too expensive and busy. I did consider Norfolk but with rising sea levels I'd like to be at least 50m above sea level.
You could always buy a finger mooring on the Wensum or Yare (used to be about £15,000 freehold a relatively few years ago) and get a Dutch barge or similar. That way if sea level rises you rise with it. It would actually give you a remarkably traffic-free route straight into the centre of Norwich, too.
Norfolk would get my vote, but I'm biased as I've lived here all my life. Why do you have to live in Norwich. You can get to the airport from anywhere in Norfolk in about an hour. There's good rural hospitals around and King's Lynn has a big hospital. Sandringham is not far either if you like to see the Royal Family. Amazing Coastline running from Hunstanton all around to Suffolk. Cromer, Wells, Cley being stunning any time of the year. Lots of old National Trust and English Heritage properties to visit. Good train service into London running from Norwich or King's Lynn. There's very few hills as well!!
Norwich to Faro is serviced by FlyBe.
If you want to get out of Norfolk though once you are in the roads are all 'A' roads but very little in the way of Dual Carridgeways.
Norfolks, Okay. Personally I miss the hustle and bustle of London. I live in Norwich at the mo and to be honest it has all the charms of a big Town but compared to a big City - it's missing something.
I suppose most people wouldn't see London as a retirement location though
Personally, if I haven't managed to find a way to do it before hand, I'd like to travel the world when I retire. Sell up, everything, house, car, the lot, and just go. No planes. Entirely overland. Complete trip around the globe.
But thats just me
