The summer season of 2018 has been busy for tourism, once again in Turkey, and holiday makers have been arriving in their thousands. Well actually I need to correct myself there because by the end of this year the total number of foreign visitors to Turkey is expected to be in the region of 40 million. It’s also safe to say that of those 40 million foreign tourists a percentage of them will buy a holiday home by the beach. Turkey draws you in; you end up being seduced by the 300 days of sunshine every year, the warm and friendly locals and the absolutely stunning scenery of its vast coastline.
Another factor that entices the holiday home buyer is the affordability of its property for sale in Turkey by the beach. Many of the apartments and villas for sale in Turkey are close to the beach or have sea views and this is what most holiday home hunters are looking for. The idea of escaping the rat race and jetting off to a home away from home with wonderful sea views will tantalise anyone – except those who prefer city views of course. Many investors want a sea view as it brings a sense of calm and relaxation, just being able to see that clear blue shimmer that is either the Aegean or Mediterranean Sea.
Turkey is neither a short haul flight nor a long haul one; it’s only a 4 hour flight or less from the UK and other parts of Europe. Yes, you can buy in France or Spain and land within 2.5 hours on their shores, but you will pay a lot more for property there. Turkey is a vast country which means land is generally cheaper than most other European countries. Therefore it’s more affordable to build there. Will this always be the case? Probably not, due, to the majority of the coastline already being developed. However just 5 or 10 minutes inland there is plenty to still develop.
Property for sale in Turkey by the beach is what most of want in a holiday home, those who love to spend lazy days on soft clean powdery sand will want to be close to Olu Deniz. This picture perfect beach has been photographed numerous times and you will be fooled in to thinking this is a beach in the Caribbean. Its not it is close to the lovely resort of Fethiye which is a popular haunt with ex-pats. If the beach is important to you and your family head to this location and you can’t go wrong its ideal for you.
If you are looking for a beach location and plenty of sightseeing opportunities this is where you should buy your holiday home as Kusadasi will suit you down to the ground. Apart from some amazing beaches such as the ever popular Ladies Beach (which by the way is not only for females) there are some excellent sightseeing tours available too. The historical site of Ephesus is visited by thousands each year; the majestic monuments of the Roman Imperial period include the Library of Celsus and the Great Theatre. One of the Seven Wonders of the World, The Temple of Artemis is here although little remains now of this magnificent temple.
Since the 5th century and just 7km from Ephesus is The House of the Virgin Mary a small domed chapel, it is believed that the Virgin Mary made this her home in her later life and spent her last days at this shrine.
Sports fans obviously want to buy property close the beach too so they can indulge in water sports. However what you will find is at most resorts there will be an array of other sports on offer too. Golfing is popular in Turkey along with tennis and horse riding the list is endless. Property for sale in Antalya will make all these sports possible plus give you the ideal beach side location it’s a win, win option. Do you like to ski? Here is something you probably don’t know – Saklıkent ski resort is located in the Mediterranean just 50km from the centre of Antalya and is open from December to early April. This is perfect for all those enjoying summers in Antalya they can ski in the winter too. This makes your holiday home ideal for year round visits.
