Default Buying in Spain or Turkey, grateful for advice

Hi, we are a couple in our late 40's we are looking to buy a flat or apartment in either Spain or Turkey. This is mainly just for us, not to rent out. Our original preference was Turkey (probably Altinkum) but the problem is you cant get cheap flights there so will cost a lot to go over there, however the cost of living is cheap. So we now looking at Spain as flights cheaper but then cost of living more.
We would love to hear from people who have bought in either countries for the pros and cons.
Also if we decide on Spain we want to live with ex pats (I know, how predictable!) in the south, what areas are best?
Your advice will be appreciated, thanks, Jim and Jayne

Hi Both and welcome to BE

You would probably be best to post this in the country forums -

Spain : http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=75

Turkey : http://britishexpats.com/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=178

Hopefully you'll be able to get some advice but if I can help in anyway, just shout
