Dreaming of a starting new life in a quaint mountain town? If the cost of moving is the only thing holding you back, this Swiss village has an offer you simply can’t refuse.
Non-residents who relocate to the Swiss village of Albinen could soon receive a bit of extra cash—about 25,000 francs (about $25,200) per adult and 10,000 francs (just over $10,000) per child, to be exact.
Sadly, the tiny village has seen a steep population drop in recent years as residents, particularly young families, have moved away. With just 240 residents at the moment, the town’s economy and schools have suffered as a result.
That said, there aren’t many jobs in the town itself, but you can always find employment in the larger cities nearby. Or you can simply work remotely from the comfort of your new house in the Alps.
The only catch: To qualify, applicants must live in the town for 10 years and be under the age of 45. If you move away before 10 years is up, you’ll lose the money. In addition, your new Swiss home must cost at least 200,000 francs (about $201,600), and be your permanent place of residence.
