Turkey is a terrific destination for UK holidaymakers. Straddling the worlds of Eastern Europe, the Mediterranean and Middle East, Turkey is a real cultural hotbed that makes it such a captivating location for a vacation. So it’s no surprise that many UK holidaymakers look to buy property for sale in Turkey. If you are also interested in finding your own villa in the sun, where should you buy property in Turkey for sale today?
Despite the populations of Turkey and the UK being similar in size (78 and 65 million respectively), the UK is just a third of the size of Turkey. So Turkey is undoubtedly sparse compared to the compact nature of the UK, making it perfect for finding properties that are rural and quiet. However, many looking to buy properties in Turkey still want to experience a sense of community. This is what makes Fethiye such a terrific location for European tourists. Despite being a city, Fethiye district has a relaxed nature and is home to beautiful Calis Beach. As can be imagined, it’s possible to find many great holiday homes for sale in and around the beach area – which is home away from home for many Europeans. Another one of the most popular areas of Fethiye is Ölüdeniz. This small beach resort is home to one of the most photographed and highest rated beaches across the whole Mediterranean area and the world. Ölüdeniz also happens to be home to many beautiful villas and holiday homes. The Fethiye district offers a bit of everything – community, history, beauty, relaxation. It’s a perfect spot if you’re looking to find property in Turkey for sale.
Istanbul will always be in the conversation when it comes to buying property, but another city and province with land for sale in Turkey is Antalya. Vastly more populated than Fethiye, the population across both the urban and metro areas of Antalya is thought to be about 2.3 million. Spurned on by massive government spending, it is home to the country’s largest international sea resort and played host to the 2015 G-20 summit. In 2014, it was thought that 12.5 million tourists had passed through the city. Properties can be found in and around the city, as well as the wider province. One such town within Antalya province that is popular with European tourists is the old fishing town of Kalkan. It is said to average approximately 300 days of sunshine a year. The town’s history is also interesting, at once being home to many Greeks before the Greco-Turkish War in the early 20th century. Kalkan also serves as terrific middle-ground between Fethiye and Antalya – which are both located on the South-West coast facing out to the Mediterranean Sea. Kalkan’s popularity has seen it named by many as amongst the best (and most romantic) tourist destinations in the world. A survey in 2012 found that an astonishing 96% of visitors to Kalkan were from the UK. As can be imagined, there are many properties for sale in and around the town – making it perfect if you are looking for investment properties in Turkey.
These are just but a few of the popular locations where you can find villas for sale. But there are many, many more places where you can find property in Turkey for sale.
