WHY DID YOU MOVE TO FETHIYE?
Fethiye is far more than merely a holiday destination for the many ex-pats and foreigners that now call the region home. What is it about Fethiye that keeps tourists returning and prompts out-of-towners to buy property here? Why is Fethiye one of Turkey’s most well-loved locations?
Meet Angel Homes, a building company and real estate agency in Hisaronu who employ an international team all now working and living in Fethiye. Why did they give up their lives elsewhere in favour of settling in the region? And what advice do they have for those looking to make the jump, buy a property and live in Turkey?
WHY DID YOU MOVE TO FETHIYE?
“I knew from the start that Fethiye was forever.” Donna Hamilton – Angel Homes Office Manager.
“I’m originally from Norfolk and studied tourism. I came to Fethiye as a travel rep for an independent travel agency in 1995, and I felt like I had come home – I knew from the start Fethiye was forever!
I fell for the hospitality of the Turkish people and the beauty of the area. I initially spent summers in Turkey and winters in the UK until I met my husband and moved out permanently.
I worked in tourism for 20 years before moving across to estates. I feel very privileged to live and work in a place I love.
If you’re looking to buy a property in Fethiye, my advice would be to do your research on the area and pick your location first, your dream home will follow.
There are lots of affordable properties around, and the cost of living here and running a home is far cheaper – plus you’ve got great weather!”
“I still love Fethiye as much as I did 20 years ago!” Hayley Karagoz – Angel Homes Sales Manager
“I’m from East London and met my husband there. He was from Fethiye. He said “come and live in the sun”, so I took a chance and came!
Twenty years later, I’m still here with no regrets.
Fethiye is a beautiful place to live; the sun, sand, sea and mountains. It’s a safe place to raise my children, and it has a lovely community spirit. I still love Fethiye as much as I did 20 years ago!
My advice to those thinking of living here is to do your research, talk to people that have already made the move, and use a good agent that can guide you through everything.
We can help make things easier – not just buying a property, but also advice on healthcare, residence permits and schools.
Many of my clients have turned into friends.”
“I fell in love with Fethiye and the people.” Denise Toraman – Angel Homes Rentals Manager.
“I am from Chesterfield, Derbyshire. I came here on holiday and fell in love with Fethiye and the people.
After visiting for the second time, I had a health scare and decided life was too short to be on the hamster wheel.
I had enough of the rat race and decided it was now or never, so I moved over.
I didn’t know if it was for a month or a year, but 10-years later, I am still here, married and living the dream.
If you’re looking to live here, I suggest buying your little bit of paradise and never looking back.
Life is too short for regrets, and I don’t regret moving to Fethiye – it’s a wonderful place full of great people.”
