Any comments on the election? Lira is going down quit drastically.
Björn - Uppsala / Sweden / and Akbuk of course
Reply from webmaster - Hi Björn. Personally I would have a lot to say on the subject but one
has to be very careful what one says or writes on certain issues in this country. As for the Lira its fast becoming a worthless
currency and politics has played a big part in that. I predict a big hike in interest rates now because inflation is through the
roof. Anyone got any spare change they can send me, anything but Turkish Lira :-)

Nice site & well put together, had an apartment in Akbuk for the last 4 years initially because it was a cheap option
to the med but the charges that seem to go up each year & the flight costs i think i may sell up.

Hallo, habe diese Seite durch Zufall entdeckt auf der Suche nach Informationen über Akbük.
Leider hab ich nicht genügend Englisch-Kenntnisse. Und die Übersetzung ist nicht ganz genau.

Hi, We have had a holiday villa in Akbuk since 2006. My wife has taken early retirement and is now living
permanently in the villa. We love Akbuk so much that we are now having a retirement villa built ready for my
own retirement mid-2015. We look forward to many happy years of retired life in Akbuk!

Great site! Only came upon it by chance when searching for updated info on residence permit.
(Had researched the Voice's site, which did not have update on actual cost of fees)
I have a place in Akbuk, so it's great to be able to keep abreast of situation in the area. Thank You

Hi, I am native Turkish who lives in İzmir. We have a summer house in
Akbük. We frequently visit in summer time. It is good to have news
from Akbük. It looks there is not much online source for news. We have
been staying at our summer house for more than 25 years. Akbük has
changed over the years but the spirit remained same. I am glad I get
some news through your newsletter. I just want to thank you. I hope
your enjoy your stay in Akbük and Turkey.

We both find your website very informative and interesting to read. Unfortunately we find ourselves in a
position that we will overstay our visas hence we shall be postponing our trips. Without your information we
would be in 'trouble' Thank you for it and although we have a place in Mahmutlar we follow your website regularly.

Have just visited after reading some of Robs posts on Turkishliving forum and found this a very informative site,
we have a place in Alanya living there maybe 8 months a year and like to visit a different part of Turkey every
year Akbuk area maybe coming up shortly, thanks for the link to the Nufus number (saved me a journey and at
least half a day). I would also like to thank Rob for convincing me to install Linux after I have been toying with
the idea for a few years and am now totally hooked.!

3rd year in Akbuk. Love the place and the people. My only negative is that although a real dog lover myself,
the street dogs are becoming a bigger issues every year. Each time there are more and more of them and they
seem to be packed together much more this year. Maybe time the government stepped in to solve the issue
before it starts effecting the country's tourism.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Akbuk the weather was lovely for our two weeks. Akbuk has the old charm
of a small village and we found the locals so helpful. Again your website was so useful to us, we had many trips
on the dolmus, so reliable and cheap - I wished we had the same system in London.

Your website has been invaluable to us we are coming out for 2 weeks on 15 Feb - it's a new location for us
and earlier than we would normally visit Turkey. I was worried that nothing would be open - Restaurants
Supermakerts etc so your restarant page is very useful showing the ones closed for the winter. News about the
Friday market is particulary useful. We are going to use the local dolmus and are looking forward to our first
visit to Akbuk.

What a great website! I bought property in Akbuk and visited many times. I have had e-visas in 2013
and no issues. Thanks for the warning about change of rules about counting backwards to earlier
visas. I was not able to get a water connection without paying the advance charge for mains sewage in full.

As I put in an earlier post, we spend a week in Akbuk in September. It was a great week.
The village is lovely and it was great to see that it has not been spoiled yet by tourism.
The local market on Friday is fantastic, especially the fruit and veg part. If you want a nice holiday
in a great part of Turkey then you must go to Akbuk.

We are coming back for our second visit and bringing friends with us this time
Had a lovely relaxing time last year and found your site really
useful. This year you helped out with a local hire car company and I have just ordered my guide
from you by donating.
Pity to see that the Nissan restaurant is no longer on your page as we thought it one of the most
friendly relaxed places and one of bestvalue meals we had last year. Keep up the good work its
really nice to see community spirit like this being put to good use for all.

Thanks for the updated information on the e-visa as I was not aware of this, what a difference that will make at
Bodrum airport, one less queue to be bothered about. For once Turkey has done something to help the foreign visitor
but a bigger thanks to you for keeping us informed.

As a new property owner in Akbuk I really appreciate the news update
about the charges ostensibly to pay for the sewage system. Perhaps there
is a different charge for Turks than foreigners? That is the sort of
thing they would do where I currently live in UAE and might explain the
