Friends bought a villa not far from Nazar Garden Hotel. I was going there for dinner one evening, when they rang to say to bring my wellies, 'cos it was raining. I thought it was a wind up, until I arrived; the only way to reach the front door was to take off my shoes & socks & roll my jeans up to mid calf  :o

It was then that the penny dropped as to why there were 3 steps up to the front door    ;)

They did install a pump in their garden, which helped a bit, but as the villa slightly uphill of them didn't have a pump, it wasn't overly effective

Certain areas flood and certain areas don’t. Last winter the canal burst its banks and quite a few homes flooded.

Dave Gardener is very pro active in getting the council and the water company to clear the drainage ditches, dredge the canal and keep the river mouth open where it meets the sea.

As for leaning houses. The are a few on Saglik Sitesi and the apartment block at the back of it (which was built on a lake by a numpty of a builder) but I’ve not seen many in other areas of Koca. I think the builders have worked it out now.

Would I buy again in that area? Probably but I would be very careful. It’s a lovely place to live when it’s dry and if the powers that be ever get the drainage sorted out it will be wonderful.
