  1. First I would like to say that this site is wonderful and I have learnt a lot from it. I am from California USA. My wife and I have decided to take early retirement by mid of next year (2020). Last year, we made a trip to Alanya and we loved it so much that we bought a one bedroom apartment on the beachfront in Mahmutlar. The building was still under construction and now it has been completed and ready to move in. Our real estate agent has already our tapu (property title deed) in our names. We are planning another visit in September (2019) and plan to apply for the 2 year residency permit for property owners. This site was instrumental in educating us on the process.. I submitted a request for a quote for private insurance from this site and received a quote from Selma. A few things still unclear to me: 1.) How much should I allocate for the residency fees. We both have US passports. 2.) How much do we need to show in our Turkish bank account for the 2 years. 3.) From your experience, since we already own our apartment with no rental expenses, what is a realistic monthly amount, we need for a comfortable life style with the assumption that we also buy a car. Appreciate your responses as it will help us plan for our retirement in the best way possible.
  2. Hi everyone, So my partner and I went to our interview today in Alanya and thought of sharing with you our experience, which comes to prove that it's a bit of a lottery, really. I'm british and my partner's Italian and we are going to purchase a home here in Alanya but had not yet finalised the purchasing process yet. We have been here for almost 70 days within our 90 days allowed so we were anxious to get this done. We opened an account here and transferred money in anticipation of being asked of proof of income and ahead of our home purchase. As we are buying a place, we decided to rent an apartment first for a short period (4 months) while the tapu (property title deed) is hopefully ready. So armed with all the docs requested and documentation needed we headed to our appointment this morning. At the Alanya Immigration office, we were greeted by the receptionist that checked the docs and asked my Italian partner to go and pay an "extra fee" for being Italian at the tax office (another 527 lira we didn't know we needed to pay) and come back... I was asked to stay and go to the waiting room while my partner was out getting this done. We had booked the appointment together so was hoping it would be done together but nope.... I was taken to an agent that processed my request (1 year) with no issues. Did not ask for any supporting documentation even though i had it all with me. He was a rather pleasant chap. My partner, however, was taken to different agent the experience was the complete opposite. His agent was rispid, questioned his motives, history and all sorts of questions before giving him only 4 months because his rental contract was only for four months! (The contract started a month ago so basically 3 months from today). It comes to show that it's a bit of a lottery although its good to warn people about the rental contract "hiccup". Basically my partner will have to wait for the card to arrive only to re-apply for the extension as soon as he receives it, as we hopefully will have a tapu then. Has anyone else had this kind of experience? What if his card doesn't arrive before his permit lapse? When we have the tapu ready in both our names, is it a straight forward process to renew the permits? Thanks, guys.
  3. Hi everyone, here a question regarding fishing: is there any special permit I need to be able to fish in Alanya?. Recommended places to fish? Thank you very much in advance. Cok tesekkurler. Von.
  4. Hi I'm Sean from Toronto. Currently living in Alanya, but would like to relocate to kas or another beautiful city like Antalya or Izmir. I'm looking for a nice, safe and quiet place with internet, beautiful view, and easy access to nature. So How easy is that to find a decent place to rent in kas. How about Safety...access to the restuarant...supermarket... Any suggestions or recommendation about living in kas, or Izmir, or Antalya would greatly be appreciated.
  5. About 6 weeks ago my good friend George - real name Mehmet - had a lot of cash on him and he was robbed but he took out a knife and stabbed the guy. There were many witnesses to this and it seems it was self-defence although of course carrying that knife was illegal. The stabbed guy went to hospital but was only there a few days and is now ok and back at his home. George, however, is in Alanya Prison and must stay there for 2 years. All prisoners in Turkey can only nominate up to 3 people to visit them in jail. It can be friends or family or a mixture of the two. All George's relatives are in Istanbul, so he nominated them sadly, so nobody in Side can visit him. Sukru Ozen has been to the prison twice to try and see George who is a tour operator and Sukru is his business partner, but to no avail. He was denied access. I understand, however, that there is just one day each year when anyone can visit Alanya Prison but I am having trouble finding out when that might be. Could anybody put me in the right direction please? I have written to George twice since he went to prison but as yet have heard nothing. I suppose he is not permitted to use the phone or emails but may be able to write a letter? I do hope I hear from him soon. I have known George for 12 years and he has never shown any signs of anger - not even raised his voice to anyone - so I am shocked at this revelation. He is 40 years old and single. He had a long term girlfriend but she sadly died in a car crash 12 years ago. He does not chat up the tourists or go to the Russian prostitutes here in Side but says he is just waiting for The One. I feel so very sorry for him. Any help anyone can give me would be gratefully received. Thank you. x Angela in Side x
  6. I want to come to Alanya by the end of June 2017. I need your valuable opinion about the best way to get to Alanya. There are some few direct flights from London to Antalya, but I have slight idea about how to get from Antalya airport to Alanya, and the cost of that? Is there a reliable services and secure? Time-wise too, morning early and late time? Or, is it better I get a connecting flight from Istanbul to Gazipaşa airport? This would mean waiting some hours at the airport flyover. How do you guys move around in Turkey? I mean what is the best way?
  7. I am constantly thinking to get out of work and go free to early retirement. Everyday this thought is getting closer to reality. I visited Turkey twice. The first time was to Istanbul and the second was in Antalya. I didn't really like the idea of living in Istanbul. It is expensive, and it is a huge city. I live in London and am tired of it. My second visit was to Antalya, last September, together with my daughter who is living in Copenhagen. I had an agreement with an estate agent in Antalya, to show us some of his listed properties. But he was not honest man, and tried to cheat me from the first moment. However, I did not like Antalya much. Big tall buildings are not my cup of tea. I want to live close to the sea, in family, semi-vibrant neighborhood, not more than 3-4 stories buildings, and not far from the city centre, shopping, public transportation, health and hospitals, and an international airport. I did some research and think now that Alanya or close to it is more of what I want. I have not clear idea yet since I have not yet been there. I am thinking to travel directly to Alanya in the first quarter of the next year, to view some properties. I would appreciate it if anybody could help give me an idea about the best things to do. If I come to Alanya and like some of the flats I am going to view Where is the best to look for a flat with sea view? Should I buy or rent first? What is the best way to deal with the estate agencies in there, and all that related stuff (in mind, I am a sole woman)? How can I avoid being cheated and ripped off?

  9. We are English living Cyprus with our 2 UK (first registered) GS BMWs now registered in Greek Cyprus. We will be taking them from the north of the island (Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, which we have insurance for) by ferry into Turkey and require fully comprehensive insurance for them for Turkey. Do the Turks provide fully comprehensive insurance? Also can some one recommend a good hotel for overnights in Tasucu and Alanya? Can you help or provide any suggestions as to how we can insure them? UK companies will not due to being in Cyprus.
  10. I am considering looking for a long term rental property preferably in Oba, Alanya. I was wondering if anyone can offer me any advice regarding this, I have so many questions and I'm not sure where to begin. How much should I expect to pay for a 2 bed furnished place? What additional costs am I likely to incur? Is Oba more expensive than nearer to Alanya centre? Can I allow family and friends to stay there when I am not there? Where should I begin to look for properties i.e., private rentals or estate agents etc.? I am hoping to come over in February to start looking, and I want to come prepared.
  11. Alanya and the Marina
  12. En film jag gjort med bilder jag har tagit på de två resor jag gjort till Alanya.
  13. Alanya is a beach resort city and a component district of Antalya Province in the Mediterranean Region of Turkey. Its visitors can enjoy the Sapadere Canyon with a wonderful landscape, the Alanya Shipyard and the Damlatas Caves. The landscape of the coast is extremely diverse. The attractiveness of the Turkish Riviera can be attributed to lakes that are a pleasure to the eye. Swiftly flowing rivers and waterfalls, bays, tiny cliffs and islands and Rocky Mountains perched at the tiny roads. Jemez and minarets, fortresses, Greek and Roman relics, Seldjuk and other masterpieces of Ottoman architecture, gray stones carved into rocks similarly to Petra, half timbered old houses, lively fishing villages and crowded bizarre provided tourist with numerous exotic sites. Turkish people, like people in the south in general are friendly, noisy and open. They hardly ever hurry and always find time for a good conversation be it about politics, sports or the weather. Men often play card games or the board game called Tafli while women deal with their children, who are loved here just as much as the children in Italy. Life is busy on the coast of Promenade. In the cafes, we can sip Turkish coffee with grounds or very hot apple tea and we can also try Huka. Shops offer delicate jewels that price as much lower than in Europe though we can also bargain for carpets, leather products or several other handicraft works. People lived in the territory of Turkey even 3000 years ago. Civilizations were born and fought with each other. Memories of the varied and sometimes tumultuous past call to mind those who managed to gain a footing here for a shorter or longer period of time. From among the pillars of ancient Ruins, we can see the endless blue sea fighting past and peaceful present, high gray walls and colorful sun umbrellas, bulky towers and slim sailboats. It's like Irania, one of the tourist centers of the Riviera which was the capital city of Sashouk in the 11th century. At the beginning of the 10th Century, the tribal leader called sashouk established the dynasty that was named after him. His descendants conquered every more areas gradually progressing to the west. They diligently built jimmies, mattresses, carbon cigar eyes and spas which were decorated with stone works and painted tiles of Arabic origin. Alanya call the sea a fortress which was built at the foot of Taurus Mountain is also a Seldjuk building. The enormous run park with serrated walls and 150 towers was erected in 1220. From the shade of the ancient little houses on top of the mountain, we can see the harbor and the beach but we can also take a glimpse of the surroundings of the entire city and parts of the fortress below. The intimate little Byzantine church is 2600 years old. At the time of the declining at the Western Roman Empire, it was the biggest city of the ancient empire in the south. Constantinople later Byzantine, ruled the political and economical life of the area. Contrary to Rome, it could resist conquering people who came with the waves of migration for more than a thousand years. The authority of Byzantine and Christianity lasted until 1071 when Asian Minor was flooded by Arabic and Turk peoples. Followers of the prophet Mohammad though did not destroy the sacred places of those who had another faith. So we're able to admire them today as well. The huge water tank and water system built at the same time as the fortress are proof of profound engineering skills. The 35 meter high bulky, octagonal red tower which was named after its building material Red Sandstone stands at the southern corner of the harbor. Each side is 12 meters thick. Beside it, the naval base and the arched walls of the dockyard built in 1227 can be seen. All of the tunnel-like gaps built of ashler are eight meters wide so bigger ships could also be towed here for repair. Today, it's used as a dry dock. Lively, colorful beaches are often to be found at the foot of old fortresses and town halls. Characteristic, flat builds, wide ships sail from here with protective canvas to shield travelers from the ferocious sand. These are called phomus [ph] to be found everywhere across the country. They're also called garret and used especially as pleasure boats for carrying passengers.
