Re: Want to move to gulluk

Lovely little town and did think of moving there a few years ago, but we have never seen a place with so many mozzies, l know they spray every night in the summer but not good for us. Also be aware that you are on the Bodrum flight path so it can be very noisy with constant aircraft overhead. Would suggest you spend a couple of weeks there getting the feel of the place before you decide to settle there. If you decide its the place for you there is a good selection of property available, but also think about what its like in the winter, as its a very different pla e out of season. Bur good luck whatever you do

Re: Want to move to gulluk

Gulluk is next door to BJV airport , but we find the planes are not too intrusive . Our house is 15 minutes away and we used to love Gulluk , but on our last few visits it has beeen gridlocked . One way in , same way out , roads congested with ceramics , fish and docks traffic , which will only increase as the new dual carriageway and Bodrum road flyover are finished.

Sharon makes a very valid point , i would likewise recommend a longer term visit .

Re: Want to move to gulluk

Thanks for advice guys , we are planning to go back and have a better look.
I didn't think that the planes were intrusive and was only bitten once by a mosquito! Maybe I was just lucky lol,
We both fell in love with gulluk everyone seemed so freindly and the area is truly beautiful!
Any other information regarding buying and living in Gulluk would be appreciated!
Thanks

Re: Want to move to gulluk

Ignore comments about Flight path, you can hardly hear planes landing and taking off. The new dual carriageway, is definitely not congested. Gulluk is a lovely local place to buy and live.

Re: Want to move to gulluk

If you're buying, check the water supply, especially if it's sourced from an artesian well; get a soil study done to make sure the underlying earth can support the foundations, without undue risk from slippage and erosion; and have the building walls checked for damp and disintegration of the sort arising from poor quality cement mix- as many constructors were using this grade during the building boom ...

Re: Want to move to gulluk

I don't know Gulluk, so can't comment, but can give you the advice I would give to anyone thinking of living anywhere in Turkey - rent for at least 6 months before you commit yourself! Rents are cheap, readily available especially in the winter, you get to really know the area and, more importantly, you get a feel for the 'real' prices rather than those inflated by emlacs scenting fresh foreign blood! Many places that are stunningly attractive in summer are far less so in winter, and it can come as a shock when you experience cold and wet weather in a house with no insulation and inadequate heating. And when people tell you, as they will, that renting is "empty money", ignore them - the more you research and undertake reconnaissance, and renting allows you to do this, the better your final decision. Good luck.

Re: Want to move to gulluk

I agree fully with Yildiz Datca and I lived in Turkey myself for 8 years, both owning and renting, so no axe to grind. Give yourself the space that renting affords to really get the low down on the area your fancy living in.
