Default Moving to Altinkum

Hi all

Am seriously considering moving to Altinkum later this year. A single woman looking to buy a property and living off proceeds from sale of my house.. Are there any underlying pitfalls out there that I should be aware of as am completely unaware of what I could be confronted with.

Intend to live a very frugal existence with my money as won't have any income to speak of and intend to remain in Turkey for the duration.

Would £200k plus see me through comfortably?

Thanks to all you veterans.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

The first search I did on Altinkum brought up this:

It's a resort town isn't it?

Depending on how old you are and how much you have to spend on rent/mortgage 200K GBP does not sound like a lot to last youthrough your retirement. Have you researched how much health insurance will cost you?

Thank you so much. That link was very informative. Will have to rethink the area.
