Expat community in Calis Fethiye

I visited this resort on a number of occasions a few years ago and found that it had a close knit expat community. Is this still the case?

Re: Expat community

Calis is a lovely area.

It has indeed a sizeable ex pat community which has actually changed quite dramatically over the years as whilst it is now mainly British, it was at one time quite a fav for the German community

I always think you get the best of all worlds with Calis

You have the beautiful seafront of Calis itself yet you are only mins by dolmus or water taxi from gorgeous Fethiye itself which has everything you need

Also you are only a very short distance from Gunlukbasi-a traditional Turkish " suburb" of Fethiye which has excellent shopping and an authentic atmosphere

Re: Expat community

Thanks very much Philip I have visited Calis a couple of times as a tourist but feel I didn't see all that Calis had to offer as we stuck mainly to the tourist trail like bars and restaurants on the main drag. Wish I had explored further. Do you live in Turkey?

Re: Expat community

Was there for 13 years including Fethiye and Uzumlu

Calis was our beach retreat and we loved it

Come back no more than about 3 streets from the seafront you see a very different Calis. The area is well kept, has been well planned and right up until I left last year the council was constantly upgrading roads, pathways, facilities etc.

For shopping etc you could if you wished not even go to Fethiye itself as within Calis you now have Migros, Kipa, Bim Sok etc -all extremely handy as well as others including English produce shops.

The development of the seafront and connecting walkway to Fethiye has continued apace and Calis area is prob now the most upcoming part of the entire Fethiye district

Holly I should add that I did see some amazing properties available at excellent prices just before I left-def worth having a look around

Re: Expat community

Various reasons Holly

We had done 13 years there often on a 6/6 basis

We decided we wanted to live abroad permanently and took stock of where we were, access, changes, flight availability etc etc

For us coming from Ireland mainand Spain was infinitely more accessible and we also felt having had over a dozen good years there now was maybe the time to try elsewhere

Re: Expat community

Onwards and upwards then �� My choice at the moment is between Dalyan and Calis although I think maybe Calis has more to offer in the winter months especially being so close to Fethiye .How many if any of the bars and restaurants stay open Oct to April would you say ?

Re: Expat community

The beauty of Calis on that score is indeed it's location as not only would you have half doz of more in Calis itself but also most of the establishments in Fethiye

Because of both this and the established year round ex pat community across Calis/Fethiye you won't be bored in the winter

I should also add that several ex pat societies run various trips in the winter to different locations in the area and further afield

A regular one is for "out of season" luxury AI hotels in Antalya with last year one being 60 Sterling for a 2 people weekend -all food booze and transfer back to Calis!!!!!
