We spoke to PropertyWire about older buyers looking for Turkish property – “Turkey has built a name for itself as a quality beach resort destination. However, buyers searching for more peaceful, scenic surroundings are heading a few miles inland, where they can choose between a house or plot with permission to build.”

Danuta and Jan Stanczyk from Buckinghamshire have owned a two-bedroom villa in Turkey since 2007, bought through Spot Blue International Property.

“We knew the area from family holidays and find the coastline around Kemer where the mountains run down to the sea stunning. We were looking for a place near the coast but not on it, as we prefer calm, natural surroundings.”
