What area to choose for living in Alanya if you want to be away from tourists in the summer, and at the same time be able to quickly and comfortably get to the city center in order to taste all the joys of city life on demand?
Let’s take a look at the Kargicak area. It is located next to the very developed area of Mahmutlar on the D400 road towards Gazipasa Airport.
What is the specificity of the area? The main advantage is the bet on environmental friendliness and a secluded lifestyle, while having a minimum set of all the necessary infrastructure. Here you will not find a large number of shops and restaurants, as in the center, but you will find the most beautiful views, pristine beaches, expensive villas and residential complexes of the elite class. There are old houses, which will eventually be subject to the renovation procedure, and banana bushes, which bring their owners a decent income.
For the clean and fresh air from the mountains, which in summer brings coolness and tranquility after a sultry day, this place is loved by those for whom it is important to turn off the air conditioner at least at night in the summer. The fact is that in July and August, Alanya turns into the tropics, the temperature is kept under 40, and the night at this time slightly eases the situation. For many tourists, this is exactly why you need to go on vacation to warm countries, but these two months are difficult for permanent residence. That is why areas along the coast, where mountain air currents give coolness, are especially appreciated by guests of local apartments.
The undoubted advantage of the Kargicak village is the availability of convenient public transport, which will be convenient to get both for shopping in the neighboring Mahmutlar, if you need a larger supermarket, and at the beginning of the Oba village, where the main shopping center of Alanya Alanium, Metro hypermarket, Takhtakale hypermarket are located. Modern buses also run to the center of Alanya and all its city attractions. By car or taxi, you can reach the center in less than half an hour at an average speed, and the famous Cleopatra Beach in 40 minutes.
It is worth noting that the beaches in Kargicak have a blue flag, a bike path is laid along the embankment to the very center of Alanya, and people with an average income and above choose housing here. Kargicak is very popular among the Scandinavian Alanians. Silence, greenery and clean unoccupied beaches are undoubtedly popular with the inhabitants of Northern Europe, who are happy to buy villas and apartments here.
There are also many Russian-speaking residents in Kargicak who love the village for its intimacy and clean air. It is mainly home to families with children and active retirees who love nature. On social networks, you can easily find yourself a company for walks, joint trips to the beach and games with children. In neighboring Mahmutlar, half of the permanent residents are Russian-speaking population.
If you decide to purchase a villa or duplex with your own garden in the Kargicak area, you should pay attention to another important nuance. Since the nature in this area is especially turbulent and the climate is subtropical, representatives of the local fauna can sometimes come to visit you. You will not find dangerous wild animals along the coastline, mostly turtles, but insects and snakes are found different – after all, there are mountains nearby, so do not neglect the services of the caretaker of your complex for preventive measures against unwanted guests. In good complexes and villas, the territory is regularly sprayed from pests, and a special powder is scattered around the perimeter, which scares away creeping reptiles.
If you were already ready to purchase housing in Kargicak, but the fact of the possible presence of living creatures on the territory of the villa confused you, keep in mind that the problem of wild inhabitants is not new, and is everywhere, it is just that they usually do not speak about it openly, and somewhere they are even proud of this exotic feature. For example, in California homes worth several million dollars, which are rented by young startups in the IT industry, a wolf or a fox can walk around the territory. And that’s not counting small parasites and insects. You always need to understand that in our territory all animals and insects are defenseless and scared, you do not need to approach them, but you need to behave calmly.
