For ambitious punters, the Antalya region is outside the eurozone and capital appreciation is pretty much assured
A bit of a hike from Blighty, I hear you say and yes it is. But consider this – Turkey has 14 top quality golf courses and they are all in this region (pictured). In fact, every hotel I saw was full of middle-aged golfers who will be spreading the word on their return.
Four hours from Gatwick it may be – and British Airways and Air Turkey have you by the wotsits when it comes to air fares right now – but the Turks aren’t daft. Low-cost carriers EasyJet and Monarch have been given permission to fly into Antalya later this year.
On the downside, the developments are not the most imaginative in design and I suppose there must be a question over their letting potential. But in terms of capital appreciation, investing in Turkey must be a winner.
Just remember to stay off the local brandy.
