Tourism in Turkey so far

So far in 2017 there has been a marked increase in British Tourists to Turkey and 2018 onwards is looking very promising with visits from our Chinese friends.

After lots of upheaval all around the world it seems that Turkey has once again become the place to be. Which is great news for the country and very encouraging for home owners and renters in the area.

In July the number of tourists were over five million which is a 46% increase year on year. Reports from the Ministry of Culture and Tourism state that British Tourists comprise the third biggest group of nearly 228,000 the first and second place going to Russians and Germans.

After the downturn last year it seems that the tourists who know and love turkey have again gained confidence to visit this beautiful area. This year has also shown an increase in Turkish holidaymakers too.  Experts report that more than 1 million Turks traversed the country for family holidays which generated an extra £1 billion lira for the tourism sector across the board. A much needed boost for bars, restaurants, travel agents and the like.

This is not only fantastic news for 2017 but for the future too. Turkey has a 10 year initiative to attract 1 million Chinese tourists to Turkey every year. This initiative is set to start in 2018 which will generate $50 million by 2023. Turkey is being branded to the Chinese as the place to be and since our friends in China are not the kind of people to sit on a beach all day, they love history their target market will be of the rich history of which Turkey has in spades.

So here's to 2018 may every room, hotel, villa and apartment be full to capacity.

Testimonial Style 03

  • I wanted to take this opportunity to send you an email to let you know how we appreciate the way in which Angel Homes has carried out the sale of our property.

     When we decided to sell our holiday villa, I viewed several estate agents in and around the area of Hisaronu. I was  very impressed with the shop front of Angel Homes at the beginning of the strip. The position of the office is ideally located to passing tourist.  I was greeted by Halley and I thought  she was  extremely friendly, professional  and approachable to deal with.  Upon valuation we agreed terms and conditions and both parties were happy to proceed. At that point I felt Angel Homes were the right agent for us to deal with in order to sale our holiday home.  

     Halley and Donna were able to find a suitable buyer for the property very quickly.  Donna was extremely professional with the way she handled the power of attorney and organised the legal side of the sale.

     From advertising the villa in September to completion it took approximately 8 weeks which is fantastic.  As we followed all the procedures that Angel Homes instructed there was minimal hassle or stress.

     We have found that Angel Homes have been extremely professional. We will definitely be recommending Angel Homes to all our friends and associates with properties in and around this area.

     Thank you very much for all your hard work and great team effort.

    All great round service from Angel Homes

  • My husband and I have just returned from Turkey where we purchased our dream holiday home, through Angel Homes and the help of Donna and Emin.

    What can we say! Such a painless experience from start to finish which took around 48 hours from viewing the property, offer being accepted, paid for and the Tapu in our names.

    Donna and Emin where with us every step of the way helping in every aspect with their experience.

    We would highly recommend Angel Homes if you are thinking of buying in Turkey, professional service that goes that extra mile.

    Thank you Donna and Emin.
