Many know the Turkish Mediterranean coast from their vacation and, after returning to the seaside resorts for years, decide to stay there permanently. The climate, real estate, and cost of living prices seem to speak for themselves. The Mediterranean coast of Turkey is one of the most popular emigration destinations for Europeans.
Tourist infrastructure is especially well adjusted to visitors from all over the World. Many locals speak English, German and other European languages and you can usually pay directly in Euros or Dollar without changing. The cost of living and services are significantly lower in Turkey than in North Europe and Germany, and low property prices compared to Germany, Britain, France, Italy, Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark, Norway make the dream of owning a home for many people coming closer. In addition, many Europeans are more familiar with the Turkish mentality than that of other emigration destinations such as for example Thailand or Cambodia.
Germany and other European have concluded agreements with Turkey which significantly simplify the legal situation relating to residence, taxes, pensions, insurance, visas, and real estate acquisition and which make emigrating in retirement even more attractive.
Antalya offers everything your heart desires. Anyone who loves fine sandy beaches (Lara Beach is the longest sandy beach in Turkey) and crystal clear water, skiing or hiking in the nearby Taurus Mountains or Green Canyon, golfing in nearby Belek, and/or wants to be pampered in the evening in fine dining restaurants, Antalya is the perfect place. Besides a well known opera house and event locations, interesting art galleries and small boutiques, you will find historical buildings from the times of the Ottoman Empire, the Byzantines, and the ancient Romans.
In addition, Germany has concluded agreements with Turkey that considerably simplify the legal situation regarding residence, taxes, pensions, insurance, visas and the purchase of real estate and make emigration in retirement even more attractive. More information on this can be found on the pages of the German Pension Insurance.
