In Turkey, we have a saying “Don’t buy a house, buy the neighbors”. That means that you need to see who you will deal with after buying a new home in Turkey.
Don’t worry, whichever country you are from and whatever your interests are, in Belek you have a great chance to find some lovely people to interact with.
Here in Belek, we have quite the best Belek places for expats. Let me tell you about it.
Belek is a world-famous golf destination. Located just a 25 minutes drive from the Antalya international airport and with over 300 days per year sunshine, Belek has a tourist season for all 12 months. These wonderful conditions make Belek a true treasure for all golfers and sun-worshippers
Belek is also home to the Turkish Airlines Open Tournament, a flagship of the European Tour Calendar and part of the prestigious Rolex series of events on the European tour. The local golfing community is very involved in this event as volunteers (marshalls, scoreboard management, etc.) to ensure the smooth running of this major tournament.
RESTAURANTS AND BARS
We have a number of the best Belek places for expats – both golfers and non-golfers. Groups of friends meeting for the great food and drinks, to watch a game on the large TV screen, or just hanging out and (when covid will be over) for karaoke and hookah.
This restaurant has a Belgian owner and very lovely customers. Whenever you go there it feels like coming home. If you are not feeling hungry they also do great cocktails and there is always a warm and friendly atmosphere
British Pub attracts all UK citizens, of course.
Indian restaurant “Aroma” and “19th Hole bar” are always open for friendly gatherings. The customers are mainly British, Irish, Germans, Dutch, and Scandanavians.
Then there are “Zirve” and “Zeytin Alti” for fantastic authentic Turkish breakfasts.

And certainly, you have to pay attention to your direct neighbors.
For example, King Construction’s residential complexes (Penelope, Cleodora, Selene, Olympias). There are mostly foreign owners, everyone knows each other, going to dinners together and so on.
Then there are “Monarch” sites especially built for Northern European people. So May and December all Finland is here.
“Belek Golf Villas” has a great community of Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, and Turks. On the site, there are always barbeques and pool games for the whole Summer.
TPC is increasing the number of those quality mini-communities in Belek by creating residential complexes like “Mountain View” and “Rosemary Garden”. We are always telling you who will be your neighbors.
If you’d like more privacy, there is always an option to buy a private pool villa.
Working in TPC from the very first day of its existence, I can say for sure that most of our clients also become our friends. People are frequently coming to our office to chat, to drink some coffee or tea, to exchange the news, to ask for any information about the region, shopping, places and so on.
Also, we are receiving plenty of parcel deliveries from different shops. Because it is very easy to find a TPC office, our friends prefer to get goods delivered to our address.
