Turunç Diary - January 2018


Looking across the harbour from Turunç Hotel
Entering the village, at the bend, between Panorama and Zeytin Villas
Opposite Fidan apartments
Another new build opposite Village Bar
Along the 'cow path' from Fidan apartments
New build behind Gozdem 1 - up the side road from Vanilla Bar
Antik Restaurant new villas near Olive Grove apartments
New car parking opposite Serife's Kitchen
Blue skies and distant snow-capped mountains
Spring flowers have started to appear ...
.... along with tree blossom
Tree cutting alongside the canal
A relatively stone-free beach
The sea's warm enough for some!


Another two months have been and gone.

December was relatively mild and January quite wet. You just never know what to wear. This last week has seen shorts weather in the sun and jumper weather when you turn a corner into the shade! But I'm not complaining. Spring is definitely in the air.

Turunç is always quiet in the winter although there is somewhere open every night where you get eat, drink and be merry. This year Tapas Mapas has opened it's doors on Tuesday evenings for delicious food and great entertainment by Murat with his wonderfully unique soul-felt renditions of popular music.

There has been quite a lot of construction work in the village over the winter - almost every spare parcel of land seems 'fair game'. If you are lucky enough to visit Turunç this year (and I hope you are) we'd be interested in your views on these changes.



Dedikodu Kız


Ibrahim Sevin

January 2018 saw the passing of one of the best-known and best-loved village residents.

Ibrahim Sevin - or "Ibo" to all who knew him - was one of the first people that many of us met when we discovered Turunç all those years ago.

The village will be a different place this year without his personality.

Our deepest condolences go out to his family and his many friends.
