A List of Properties for Sale in Didim
Didim is a small town on the western Aegean coast of Turkey. Didim is the name of the district but it also includes a number of small towns including Altinkum, Yenihisar, Mavisehir and Akbuk. A popular holiday resort with long sandy beaches, watersports, hotels, a weekly market, a waterpark and the historic Temple of Apollo at Didyma.
The town is located on one end of Gulluk Korfez, a bay that is also home to Akbuk, Gulluk, Torba, Turkbuku and Yalikavak on the Bodrum Peninsula, and spans Aydin and Mugla provinces. Didim is neighbour to Bafa Lake, a national park; the Buyuk Menderes River (historically called the "Maeander", from which the word "meander" derives), and Miletos and Priene, historic cities.
About 15 years ago, people from large cities around Turkey such as Istanbul, Ankara, and Izmir first came to Didim and started to build their own summer houses, holiday homes, apartments, and villas. Property values are still rising dramatically as foreign buyers follow the lead. Didim has its own microclimate and benefits from hundreds of days of sun a year and warm winters, allowing residents to enjoy the famous beach even in January. Didim is much closer to ancient towns and natural wonders than most of the holiday resorts of Turkey.
