Re: Turkish living

Just returned after two weeks and so hard after we bought our new house built to a high spec for winter living.
We just want to be there.
Last year we sold the villa we planned to summer in and yesterday took a deposit on our planned winter apartment in Guzelcamli.
Now its going to be a slog until we retire to Turkey next October.
But a few weeks holiday planned in between now and the move. Cant wait.
For the knockers we have owned our properties 17 and 10 years respectively and love the Davutlar ,Guzelcamli area..
Builders on the site next door ordered me a trailer of stones for the garden 100ytl and got them delivered for me..Ordered another load half for me ,half for our friends that were dropped off outside our fence. I started shovelling them over the fence and within 10 minutes a man in a digger passed and lifted the lot over.
I still find the area so friendly maybe its being out of resort, but in our experience the locals cannot help you enough.

The buying and selling process has so far been easy with a helping hand from Turkish friends and emlaks.
Lots of friends enjoying the rates they get every month on their pensions.

Interest rates flying to nearly the 25% when first bought and no one complained then.

We moved to Turkey in 2003 having done no homework whatsoever. We had had a house built for us by a friend in Kalkan in the days when there were very few properties on the hillsides. We had many holidays in Turkey previously and had fallen in love with the place. During the winter that the house was being built we decided to sell up in the UK and move out to Kalkan and see what happened. It was wonderful. Very unspoilt. In 2004 we built ourselves a summer house in Gombe, near Elmali in the mountains. From the garden, which was in fact an apple orchard, we had views of the waterfall tumbling down Akdağ, the 3000 mt mountain.

By 2005 the excitement of retirement had worn off so I started work again at our friend’s hotel as a guest co-ordinator. This meant we used the Gombe house less as it was only suitable for summer use as we had a metre and a half of snow up there in the winter and with no fuel oil being available only diesel the same as in the car we certainly couldn’t afford to run the central heating for long!

In 2008 we decided to sell the Gombe house and build nearer Kalkan but on the yayla where it wasn’t so hot and busy in the summer. Our love affair with Kalkan was coming to an end for various reasons but as I was still working we needed to be fairly near so we built a house in Saribelen and created a fruit orchard around it. In 2009 the Kalkan house was sold and in 2011 we decided to spend the winter in Antalya. We rented an apartment near Lara beach in Örnekköy and were able to spend the winter either shopping or visiting places that were further from our previous houses.

By the spring of 2012 we had bought an apartment in Fethiye, at the top of Deliktaş, and for the next couple of years we moved between there and Saribelen. By this time things in Turkey were changing...a lot. The final straw was when the pastahane at the bottom of the road was fire-bombed and we had Tomas and tear-gas in the streets. The love affair came to an end. We decided to sell and move on. So in spring 2015 a lovely Turkish family from Istanbul bought our apartment and we made the decision that North Cyprus would be our next home, partly because of the language and partly because our private health İnsurance with a Turkish company would still cover us here. Turkey is beautiful country there is absolutely no denying and we enjoyed nearly every minute of our time there. Now we enjoy our time here. Things change and in turn life changes. Just all part of the rich pattern.
Wonderful story of life in Turkey.

Re: Turkish living

Just a reminder to those car owners in Turkey the second installment of the car tax is due in July. After this a late penalty is taken. This can easily be paid through the bank internet facility.

Sadly it has, almost beyond recognition. Most of the buildings are still there, although much changed, except for the little building with the triangular shaped roof to the far right. It was the old lock-up, converted to a café when the new police station (recently demolished) was built in the town. For some reason the Belideyer allowed it to be knocked down, along with quite a few other original buildings. Very sad.

That said, the harbour is still a buzzing location in the evenings, plenty of (overpriced) bars and restaurants,and Datca is still a predominantly Turkish resort with few visitors outside of mid June to mid September.

I think you'd get a shock Martin, if you saw how Datca has grown and spread since those days. And you'd certainly get a shock at the prices!!
