Brits looking to retire are often tempted by Turkey’s cheap property, notes Quest International.
The lifestyle publication says a mixture of low-cost homes and the country’s cost of living continues to bring in expatriates.
Susan Cummings, an expatriate who has made the move abroad, told the publication she was put off by the property prices in France and Spain.
"The property prices [in Turkey] were about the cheapest [with] lots of sunny warm weather and the cost of living is incredibly low," she commented.
Despite struggling with the language and missing her son, Ms Cummings would not change her expatriate lifestyle: "One thing I can categorically state is that I don’t miss the UK at all."
Moving to Turkey, says Ms Cummings, has helped her enjoy the outdoor life and taken her "well out of the rat race".
According to web resource allaboutturkey.com, all Turkish healthcare is co-ordinated by the ministry of health and is still "not at the expected quality".
Brits considering moving to Turkey should look into international medical insurance policies to provide them the cover they need.
