Best wishes for 2022, let’s hope we can finally get back to Kalkan again this year.

The Korsan webcams are a tremendous way of staying in touch and watching how Kalkan changes throughout the year. A storm must have hit the other day, the sea was an amazing contrast of blue and brown.

I love watching the shenanigans that occur at the roundabout too, especially during the busy summer season. Great fun!

Hi Tortoise Lady, we too look at the Korsan webcams daily, it's lovely to see Kalkan at different times of the year, and remember all the happy holidays we have had.

Seasons greetings from me too.   Let us hope there will be a bit more activity on this Forum when it gets closer to the summer season and we trust more opportunity to travel.

I have an occasional peek at the Korsan Webcams to make me feel closer to Kalkan and our next visit.

Buying A Property & Real Estate / Re: Buying Property in Turkey
« Last post by bella9525 on December 13, 2021, 06:10:14 AM »
I have just been looking at the “Property News” section of the Blacklion website and it contained a couple of articles from the London Evening Standard.  One quoted John Howell of International Law Partrnership saying that that “there is no doubt recent legislative changes have reduced consumer confidence regarding long-term property rights”.

He concludes that buying property in Turkey is safe as long as you use a capable and Independent lawyer but it’s a bit of a shock to see rules are changing.  I’ve read several times that the rights of foreigners to buy have been suspended for a period in the past including a thread in this section last year.  Can anyone say if this is a genuine concern or just normal practice for the Turkish legal system?

Also is anyone aware if there is “military land” anywhere near to Kalkan and so a potential issue?

Members are probably aware that property in deemed Military areas can only be purchased by (or sold to)Turkish people and that land can be re-defined as military after your purchase.
hi abbo. buying property in turkey is a really good decision because turkish lira is cheap now and the rules to buy a real estate in turkey is more easier than before. but about your last question I think it's better that u ask it from an expert. u can visit https://alkhailtr.com/ and ask them if u want.

so out of interest how many people on this forum have at last made it to Kalkan either for a break or to sort out your villas.  The local businesses need you,even at this stage.

General Discussion / Turkey still in Red for Travel

I cannot really understand why Turkey is still in the red zone for travel. 75% of the population have had their first vaccination & cases per 100,000 are lower than here. Another nail in the heart of hard working Turkish people in tourism. We only hope this will be resolved for next year and we are once again able to travel to this wonderful country.

This is why the chopping down of olive groves etc to build illegal villa over the other side of the hill is wrong. Bulldoze them up BURN them. Get some plastic greenhouses up. Apply for electric and water hook up then when they have the certificate to grow tomatoes move them and build some villas with bloody great pools. No sewer waste pipes just runoff. Less water in reserve to fight fires. People buying these places without planning permission. Mad.

Totally agree Ray, you do worry about the infrastructure when emergencies happen. Sadly the Turkish authorities don't seem to be up on these things. Lets hope the fires don't spread I believe Bodrum is now under threat, though it is a fair way from Kalkan.
