5 Best Places To Live In Turkey For Families

Turkey has become one of the world’s most sought after locations for couples. 

Some would say it is due to the spectacular landscape found in every direction, while others would claim it is due to the perfect mixture of tradition, orthodoxy and secular variety.

The local people have a unique and important view of embracing progress and diversity, without sacrificing history.

 It is virtually a crossroads for Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and even Africa.

No wonder this land has been prized by almost every world empire. It is full of wildlife, archeological digs, cutting edge technology, and one of the richest cultures in history.

It is well worth investigating every opportunity to spend time in this part of the world. Open up and listen to the sound of thousands of years of civilization as speaks from the earth.

Here are our Top 5 Recommendations of Cities for Families:

1)  Istanbul


As the largest city in Europe, Istanbul is known for its diversity. For thousands of years it has been a hub connecting Europe with Asia.

It doesn’t matter if you love art, food, religion, or just a rich culture, you will find it here. It has been called by many names, but some of the most familiar are Byzantium and Constantinople.

Although not the capital of Turkey, this city is widely recognized to be the central crossroads of the East and the West. It is not uncommon to see modern architecture right next to an ancient landmark.

Beaches, mountains, and transportation are all easily accessible from almost anywhere in this beautiful part of the world. Whether you are looking for a short getaway or trying to live on a little piece of heaven, Istanbul should be at the top of your list. One of the best things about this ancient city is people from all walks of life seem to thrive on the diversity here. 

2)  Antalya


There is no better way to spend time with the one you love, than watching a beautiful sunrise or sunset. Antalya has some of the most gorgeous backdrops for Mother Nature.

While you can enjoy the warmth of the sun as often as you like, the upper and lower Düden waterfalls provide a stunning view of cool water flowing all year round. Antalya Province is by far the fastest growing area in Turkey, and is a wonderful place to visit or plant roots.

Not only do couples enjoy the view of the Taurus Mountains rising all around them, they provide some of the best winter sports around.

If you are into skiing, hiking, or sightseeing this is definitely a top contender in the Turkish landscape.

3)  Alanya


The city of Alanya holds the southernmost spot in the Turkish Riviera. This area offers such an attractive enticement for couples that it is possibly one of the most sought after places to visit.

It is responsible for almost 10% of Turkish tourism, and 30% of foreign property purchases in Turkey.

Due to its location and great beauty, this small strip of land has been a focal point for thousands of years, including the Greeks, the Romans, and the Ottomans.

One of the many names it has been known by throughout the centuries is Kalonoros which means “beautiful/fine mountain” in Greek. Surrounded by ancient castles, fortresses, and strongholds you can settle down to enjoy thousands of years of history, without sacrificing the conveniences of today.

4)  Bodrum


If you don’t mind spending a little more, Bodrum offers some of the best upscale entertainment in Turkey. 

Good music is readily available and some of the world’s best sailing routes and marinas are close by.

As with everyplace in Turkey, you cannot escape the rich diverse culture that can only be produced by thousands of years in the limelight. Couples will enjoy food, strolls on the beach, and every imaginable convenience in this modernized retreat.

Bodrum is often the first choice for holiday excursions and vacations, but because of the wide range of properties, it has become a primary target for Turkey real estate purchases as well.

5)  Side


If you are looking for peace of mind, nature and an environment bath in culture and history, than Side is your place to be.

Located on the southern Mediterranean coast of Turkey, Side is a small but historically rich town where you will instantly feel the lazy, stress free life it has to offer.

Side, whose history can be traced back to the 7th century BC, is home to the world wide known Apollo Temple,as well as just a short driving distance to many more historical sites where to immerge yourself in history.

With a small harbour, restaurants and pubs spread a bit all around the city, Side is truly an amazing location where to fully enjoy some well deserved holidays with your loved ones
