Altinkum translates as ‘golden sands’ and this resort deserves the name by having 3 splendid sandy beaches.
Altinkum has a permanent population of around 10,000 and so has a year round community without being a larger commercial town. There is also a growing community of ‘ex pats’ taking advantage of its excellent location, lovely weather and low cost of living.
A couple can live well on £50 per week including all bills!
Altinkum is on the southern Aegean coast of Turkey between Izmir to the north and (nearer to) Bodrum in the south. A ferry ride to Bodrum takes 1 hour but a car journey takes 2 hours because of the curve of the bay. Transfer times from Bodrum airport are about 1 and ½ hours and from Izmir about 2 hours.
Whilst prices in the established resorts of Bodrum and Cesme (near Izmir) are higher, the locations in between have been (at least to date) overlooked, making Altinkum an especially good buy.
Prices for 2 bed apartments (in 2008) start at £25,000 and a luxury 3 bed, 2 bath, new build villa with pool can be purchased from £65,000.
For £100,000 you can own a property worthy of a football star! If owning a holiday home was always an unaffordable dream then contact us and see just how easy it can be to make that dream come true. But remember, as more people discover this overlooked treasure, prices are rising.

It is interesting for us to see that currently the majority of our clients visit to buy a villa in Altinkum because the price of a villa in Altinkum is very affordable. The majority of our clients for Spain on the other hand are buying apartments as the prices have gone up so much over the last few years. In our opinion it will not be long before Turkish property prices are similar to Spain.
