Is 2018 The Time To Get A Move On?

Is 2018 The Time To Get A Move On? Christmas and New Year tends to be a time when we take a moment to sit back and take stock of our lives. Of course we know having family round and enjoying a few glasses of mulled wine can lead to a little sentimentality – either about how things are right now or how they used to be; and there’s nothing wrong with that.

LIVING TO THE RHYTHM OF THE MOSQUE If you’re choosing a home in Turkey you may want to consider the nation’s primary religion.

REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL

REASONS TO BE CHEERFUL If you’re not careful, you can find yourself being a little dispirited by news about the Turkish property rental market at the moment. It’s certainly true it’s become a little more complicated to let out a villa or apartment since the Government in Ankara increased security in the wake of the attempted military coup and a spate of terrorism attacks in 2016. But the measures were not meant simply to make life more difficult for landlords from overseas.
