    House Insurance

    If you are shopping around for house insurance can I suggest you try Anadolu Sigorta who are based approx 100 yards from Migros on the way into town.

This also means that I have found that haggling when it comes to buying goods does not seem to be the...

    Buying in Turkey through myvillaturkey

    Hi I thought I would start a journal off to show how we have found the buying process in Turkey. Buying a property in the UK is stressful enough but the thought alone of buying abroad is enough to put anyone off so I thought I would let you have our experiences as they happen. These are...
