Izmir holiday home: The Izmir region is packed with gorgeous beaches, historical sites and activities for everyone. It's some distance to the airport, but if you don't mind the drive then our top picks are: the stylish, elegant spa town of Cesme; and Kusadasi, which is packed so full of things to do you could spend every summer here and still not have time to fit it all in.
Izmir investment property: This up-and-coming area is attracting more tourists each year, including Turkish tourists. Our top tip for Izmir investment is Izmir City, which has a vibrant young population who are in need of rental properties.
Izmir permanent home: Izmir's temperate climate makes it a lovely place for a permanent home. You'll find an established expat population already enjoying the year-round lifestyle. We think Izmir City, with its big-city facilities, rich cultural life and links to the Cesme Peninsula is the best bet.
