Due to the increasing hotel accommodation prices in the tourism sector, tourists coming from abroad for holidays find it quite costly to stay in a hotel during their holidays. They prefer to rent a house instead of a hotel. If a family with many children is going on holiday or a large group of friends are planning a vacation, they prefer to rent a villa as it is much more cost-effective.
Proximity To the Airport: It is approximately an hour's drive from the airport, making it a quick and easy transfer to your destination.
Climate: Side is located on the Mediterranean coast and it enjoys a long, hot summer and temperate winter months. This makes it perfect for all-year-round holidaying or living. Temperatures can reach around 40 degrees in the hottest months of July and August, but it rarely drops below 8 degrees in the winter months.
The Coastline: This area of the Med is home to some fantastic beaches and the warm turquoise sea. With stunning views of mountains and coastal views, a villa purchased here will have stunning panoramic views.
Activities: Side has many cultural activities to entertain you and your family or friends. Walking around the centre of Side is like immersing yourself in the past and if historical sites aren't your 'thing', then take advantage of one of the many water sports stations dotted along this area. Many tour companies offer canyon trips, white water rafting, and hiking.
Rental Returns: Side is a top-rated destination for holidaymakers, so buying a property here with the purpose of renting it out will guarantee a high return on your initial investment.
Active Expats Groups: Buying a property in Side with the purpose of living in it permanently gives you access to many expats who have already chosen to live here. Drawn by the temperate climate, wonderful all-year-round social life, and superb infrastructure, this area attracts foreigners worldwide.
Infrastructure: Side has a very well-developed infrastructure perfect for attracting foreign nationals. Expect to find many banks, ATMs, schools, hospitals and doctors' surgeries, shops and shopping malls selling branded goods, and fabulous bars and restaurants. Many local buses, taxis, and car rental agencies ensure that moving around this area is quick and straightforward.
Citizenship: If your villa purchase is more than $4000,000, you have the right to automatic citizenship, which comes with many benefits.(June 2022 updated fig.) Applying for a residency permit after your 90-day visa has expired is also a more straightforward process and is something we at Summer Homes can assist with too.
There is a wide range of villas perfect for your budget and requirements. While some villas are across one floor, others might have more than one floor. Some of them might have facilities such as a private pool, playgrounds, and gyms, while others might not have them. The same goes for the security guards and handypersons. But do not worry, we can hire them to assist you.
Some villas have indoor and outdoor pools, perfect for winter swimming or if you are not a lover of the sea or beach. The price difference is quite noticeable between the two options.
Many villas are situated in complexes that offer a wide variety of facilities. Still, others might be more privately situated, overlooking the coastline on cliffs or further inland, giving a more rural idyll. Again, prices will reflect the differences seen.
