Sangye Khandro hangs out here I believe.

Also this place in New York State.

I’ve been here a couple of times. The Khenpo winters elsewhere so it hibernates. But good people with a good teacher.
There's also his group in Brazil. They have a community there. I don't know how it works, but probably it is cheaper. The lama in charge seems to be a decent guy. Could be worth investigating.
Here's the link:

Living in Brazil is pretty cheap if compared to Europe or the US.

I know someone who fits this criteria. She's been back in retreat for the last 10 or so years, after doing a 3yr in the mid 80s. But I think it's kind of a special condition, as she has formed a relationship with the retreat lamas, and she is well established in the practices. I imagine she plans to just practice until she passes.

Instead of slandering others in this way, “slander” the yidam: utter his name repeatedly by reciting his mantra all the time." - Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche - Zurchungpa’s Testament - Shambhala Publications
