Re: Whats Kas like?

Hi Leanne&Drew..if you are looking for a place very different from Alanya Kas would fit the bill...its very scenic..but too hilly for me

i cant remember where you said you lived in Alanya.. as you know theres chalk and cheese between some of the many areas here.

Kas has plenty of nice little shops bars restaurants in the season and small enough to get to know everybody in the winter.i met a mix of expats when i visited there.
One of our famous members Rainbow'/Soo lived there happily for many years..sadly she has now passed away.

The weather isn't much different ..very similar to Alanya..
Dare i say that i think that Kas considers itself to be a bit more upmarket than many places.... oops i hope i dont get a chorus of angry Kasites out to get me for that remark ..

Are you looking for more or less expats ?

Re: Whats Kas like?

When I first came to Turkey I asked all the local Turks what they considered to be the most beautiful place in Turkey - and they all said Kas - so I went there - stayed at the Hideaway Hotel with stunning views - and I was not disappointed - it truly is one of the most stunning sceneries anywhere - and a few Ex Pats but not too many - like Kalkan - I would definitely consider living there - only downside is the distance from any airport - nearest is Dalaman or Antalya - both 4 hours drive away by dolmus -

Re: Whats Kas like?

A great place. I was surprised how cosmopolitan it was when we went out in the evenings. Some good music bars catering to different tastes and, unusually for a Turkish resort, we found the cafes and bars quite individual and not the samey type of places that are often so prevalent.

Plenty of opportunity to get out on the boats including trips to Meis (a Greek Island about 40 minutes away).

It's very clean and well maintained.

Re: Whats Kas like?

We used have a home in Kas, its a truly wonderful place and the varied nationalities that live there wonderful but you really need a car to get around as you are a good distance away from the airports and big cities. As said before the harbour is at the bottom of the hill and very pretty with lots of varied resturants, and then everything else up uphill. We have some wonderful friends who live there, but after 2 years of owning we moved to Didim then onto Mavishire, where getting about is so much easier, might I suggest you spend a couple of weeks there and see how you feel before upping sticks a moving there full time,

Re: Whats Kas like?

When we visited recently we thought it was very pretty, but, like Shirley, the hills would be too much for us, especially during the summer months. As previously mentioned, it's probably best to go for a holiday summer and winter to get a feel for the place. Good luck. Sue xx
