  1. I would like to have some clarity on this new law regarding residence permit . I have a villa in Bodrum which has been bought about 5 years ago . If I apply for resident permit do I only have to pay for this once and it gets renewed every year as long as I have a property in Turkey . Also would this cover my wife as well .
  2. Sounds like a great idea ,particularly if you can apply for residence permit from UK .
  3. You can also put a clean pebble (small concrete ) in your kettle and leave it there . Every time you boil water scale will adhere to the pebble rather than the kettle .
  4. Hi Joe, I have been to " The Village" in Bodrum for five weeks and came back last week. My Villa is kind of finished with minor issues that need to be resolved. However all this will be done in due course. Phase 2 work is due to start in September/11 as they have just leveled off the site and will be laying down foundations in September. Phase 1 work is almost complete with all the swimming pools functioning and I have not had any problems whilst staying there. I do believe that the phase 2 is expected to be completed in 2013. All I can say is that the progress of work is bit slow bu

    Tuzla Forum

    It appears to me that there are not many people from Europe settled around Bodrum and Tuzla lake. There are many new developments going on but like Steve I have not come across many people on TC forum sharing their experiences. I have just come back from Turkey myself after spending 4 weeks near Tuzla lake. I have spotted lots of flamingos in the Tuzla lake on my daily walks but found Turkey to be little bit cold in February/March. I am thinking of going back again sometimes in May, hopefully it should be little bit warmer. I have already written about the villa that I have acquired in "T
  6. Hi Steve

    Don't say you have no friends! I will be honoured to call you as my friend. I have noticed that you are from Ireland,please tell me about your interest in Turkey and whether you have acquired a place of your own in Turkey or whether it is your regular holiday destination. I have a place near Bodrum and its called "The Village", about ten minutes drive from ...

  7. Hi Kamal I notived I have no friends at the moment ?????????

  8. If people are still wondering about flamingos in Tuzla lake, I would like to say that I am seeing a big flock of them on my daily walks.
  9. I have been to Agora and as you have said they are quite reasonable. We have also been to to a restaurant in Bogaizchi called Bargalia where the food was nice but very expensive, I have to start looking into buying a car.
  10. Your place looks beautiful. I have just come back from Bodrum and can't honestly say if there were any flamingos but when I was there in September this year I did see lot of sea gulls in the Vita Golf park lake but no flamingos. It would be sad to see if these lovely birds disappearing from the lake. I am new Villa owner in the area but already I am finding that to live there having a car is a must because all the shops and stores are at a distance. Eating from nearby restaurants is very expensive even more expensive than London.
  11. Thanks Sunny I am looking forward to get back to Turkey again. Its difficult to keep your feet in two boats. Soon I hope that I will make lots of new friends in Turkey.
  12. Thanks Abi and Nitrox but there was a lot of anguish whilst waiting for its completion as there was lack of information coming forth. At present only two families have moved in and soon all the other units will be occupied. My Children came out see the villa whilst we were still out there and it felt like heaven as the say away from the maddening crowd. I am making effort to learn Turkish as I have found that English is hardly spoken although eyes, smiles and hand gestures can speak volumes.
  13. I am now a proud owner of a new villa in a new development called "The Village". I must admit that I had some serious concerns to begin with as I was not getting enough information being sent but now the villa has been completed it looks stunning with mountains as a backdrop. This development is on the road D330 and 10 minutes drive from Bodrum airport. The development is coming in three phases with phase one almost completed and all the properties have been purchased in phase 1. There are 3 villas and 23 one bedroom and two bedroom apartments with communal swimming pools as well as
  14. Looks like my waiting is over because I have been advised that my place will be completed by 16/08/10. I will have to arrange flights to go out to Turkey and take possession of the property. My only concern is that I do not want to pay off the balance until I am fully satisfied with the construction of the property. Can any one advise whether it is normal for the developers in Turkey to ask for all the purchase price cleared before the transfer of the deeds.
  15. I often get accused of chatting to complete strangers when I am abroad. I never do this living in London.Strange!!!!!!!!!Kamal
