Properties in Alanya
Alanya is one of the biggest cities in population and area of Antalya province. The city has been inhabited by many different nations and civilisations throughout history and named as Coracesium (by ancient Greek), Kalonoros (by Byzantine), Alaiye (by Seljuk and Ottoman Turks) and finally Alanya (by the modern Turkey Republic).
Because of its geographical position Alanya has always been on the ancient world crossroads between the Pamphylia (west to Antalya) and Cilicia (to the east of Mersin). The Toros Mountains surround the city from the west and to north of the city centre and the peninsula (where the ancient castle is located), keeping the bottom lands (the modern part of the city) unexposed to the cold northern winds. This insulation and protection by the natural barriers has left the social organism unaffected over time and Alanya had been known as the home base of Mediterranean Pirates for centuries.
Julius Caesar gave the territory to Cleopatra as a gift. This love might have been soiled during the historical events but the affect of this love continues even in the present day in the name of world famous sand beach of Alanya. Cleopatra Beach is still standing with all its beauty in the centre of Alanya.
Just like in the old times, Alanya has preserved its popularity and become one of the most well-known holiday destinations and liveliest cities of Turkey, whilst other cities may feel somewhat empty during the winter months.
The bustling Alanya centre, which is famous for its bars, restaurants, hotels, nightclubs, harbour, ancient castle, world famous Cleopatra Beach, Damlataş Cave, Lover Cave, Phosphoric Cave and Pirates Cave, is a remarkable place to live.
Buying real estate in Alanya will allow you to share all of these historical events and natural wonders with others. The properties in the centre of Alanya are very limited and thus more valuable. The zoning of the city has been completed and according to Turkish legal limitations foreigners cannot live on more than 10% of the total designated area of Alanya. So the "limited" number of apartments in the city centre are relatively expensive and more valuable compared with other sub-districts of the region. If you buy property in Alanya, be sure that it is perfect not only for living but also for investing your money. There are individual blocks and complexes where you can find standard apartments and penthouses. The ownership of standard or duplex apartment in a complex in Alanya is very attractive for both foreigners and Turks. Major city attractions will be just minutes away from your new home.
