Hi Rainey,

We live in Dalaman, which we like. Not too busy, not many tourists & open all year round. Airport also here so very good for travelling.

Some areas close down in the winter, so not much going on. Depends what you like. To like Koycegiz you must like quieter areas, I assume? From what I've seen there is a small restaurant that ex-pats seem to gather in. I think there are quite a few ex-pats living there. Perhaps other members can give you more information on that.

We rented before we bought and changed areas for various reasons. I think this a very good idea. This way you can make sure the area you have rented in is really for you. If not, try another. Much easier to move rentals rather than sell your house.

Meanwhile the money you have for your property you can invest in the bank and earn some interest. This should more than make up for the rental monies paid out. Currently interest rates are around 19-20%....less 15% tax.

Yes there are snakes...lots of them. I think 54 species native to Turkey, including sea snakes. I don't like snakes either and have seen quite a few...one rather large one and several smaller ones. 2 swimming & one in Koycegiz swimming in the lake & trying to climb into a moored boat.

I am told they are more afraid of me than I am of them....NOT TRUE!!!!!!!!!

Hope this helps.

Linda

Hi Linda

Were the other 2 snakes in the sea?! I've seen loads of snakes here. There are loads in the river here in Dalyan.

You're right, there seem to be quite a few expats in Koycegiz. I was there in the week and there were plenty of people out walking along the lakeside - mind you it was about 18/20 degrees!

There's not such a difference in the population there as there is here in Dalyan, which is so much more populated in the summer months and a lot quieter in the winter.

Rainey - I hope you're not too put off by the snakes. Can't imagine that anyone likes them (me included although have got used to seeing them). They are very shy creatures.

No, one swimming in the river in Dalyan. One in our garden...my husband has seen a white one too...or part of it going into our garden wall.

A large brown one at Kaunos. One as I said at the lake and another in a river in Dalaman....oh and 2 dead ones near our house.

Far too many for my liking.

Ok - I'd be a bit worried if you'd seen them in the sea as I understand they can be dangerous and I wouldn't want to come face to face with one while I'm swimming!

Not seen any white ones...just the usual black, browny, green.... a cat caught a baby patchy one in the garden once.

Re: Koycegiz

Hello Rainey,

Koycegiz we find a beautiful town to visit. It depends on what you like, theres a few shops and a few restaurants not loads of choice! But not a problem if you cook at home.

Its fantastic sitting out with the lake for a view and also wandering along the promenade area.

We have friends that have just left Topalar and moved to Dalyan they found Topalar very beautiful but found they were a bit far out from everywhere.

We have seen a few snakes here in Dalyan so seeing them in Topalar/Koygeiz will be likely. But they do not want to go near you unless provoked so they seem to stay away. It depends on how rural the area is.

Sorry don't know about Vets near Koygeiz or English get Togethers but no doubt there will be English meet-ups there.
