Turkey is full of amazing places but some are certainly more popular with expats than others whether it’s because of the weather, surroundings or environment. It is a tastefull idea for many Europeans to own a villa in Turkey overlooking to the natural beauties of the country. You could make a great home for yourself pretty much anywhere in Turkey but today let’s take a closer look at some expats favourites.

Istanbul offers such variety from coastal resorts to urban neighbourhoods and much more. While Istanbul isn’t quite as popular with retirees who are looking for a more laid back life style its rich diversity and hustle and bustle is certainly appealing to younger expats.


Rivalling Istanbul for the most popular city in Turkey for expats Antalya as everything you could need and it’s strong and resilient local economy have made it a thriving business centre for finance and tourism. While many foreigners enjoy holidaying in Antalya many also make it their new home and it certainly does have plenty to offer.

Popular costal resorts likeKemer, Belek and Side have made Antalya popular with a range of expats of various ages from all around the world. The stunning array of beaches and beautiful weather are certainly some of the main attractions Antalya has to offer.  Antalya really is a place many visit and never want to leave.

24th January 2017 It would help people thinking of moving to Turkey a better idea of where to live if you included the costs of living in each area which can vary significantly maybe like a "shopping bag" which includes a variety of everyday groceries like loaf of bread, 1 litre of milk,a bottle of Angorra wine,1kg of steak, and also Belidiye taxes for an average 3 bedroom villa.
