A work colleague had bought two properties from the developer at Mege & Pine Tree and Aegean Pine Villages and was so passionate about Turkey, the people, value for money and building quality that I decided to go for a long weekend as soon as I heard Apollo Village was selling off plan. Although it was a building site at the time I had such confidence in the developer that I returned home having bought a pool facing apartment - I still can’t believe how straightforward the purchasing process was.
Over the next year I waited excitedly for the next batch of photos to arrive by email showing how construction was progressing and Apollo Village was even finished ahead of schedule. In November 2007 I went for another long weekend to get my title deeds and furnish the apartment - what a busy weekend that was - but once again everything was so easy and the developer was there to offer advice and guidance every step of the way. Photos don’t do justice to the complex, it is simply stunning and I am so happy I took the plunge - one of the best decisions I have ever made!
Prior to purchasing our property in Turkey we had never been to your country before so we were both very cautious. This was soon put to rest after we met the staff and all the builders who were involved with Aegean Pine Village.
Everyone has been friendly yet professional, and have always been there to assist us with any hurdle we have encountered along the way. Right down to very small details or problems, all the staff have been willing to help even after the sale of our apartment was complete.
We are very grateful with all the help and assistance you have given us with making this huge step in our lives as smooth and trouble free as possible. I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the developer as a quality, honest, trustworthy and professional company to deal with.

I purchased the apartment at Blue Pearl in October 2006 when it was selling off plan. This gave me the chance to see the construction quality and materials. Completion was on time and in line with the sales contract with the developer. My wife and I live here all the time and the property has not been affected in any way by the changing weather conditions
Breakfast starts with bird songs and the smell of flowers in the morning, dinnertime, even on hot summer nights, has a breeze coming from the sea, the pool is lit up and the moon shines through the pine trees - all for our happiness and pleasure!
Our thanks to Ahmet Kurtul and his staff for convincing us to buy from this complex.

We found the whole process unbelievably efficient from beginning to end. Once we came over to view the development and decided to purchase, everything was wrapped up in days. When we left Turkey the development was still a building site yet within 5 weeks as promised it was completely finished, landscaped and ready to move in. All in all a very stress free experience.
We are delighted with our town house which we purchased in 2006. We have beautiful gardens, big swimming pools and great facilities to enjoy all year round. The design of the villa is unique and very practical. We recommend the solid, high quality and European standard of Aegean Pine construction to everyone as we are now living our dream.

We first met the developer of Apollo Village at the Place in the Sun Exhibition at the NEC in Birmingham. After a short while many of our questions had been answered and we came away confident that buying our new home in Turkey was the right move for us. During the Inspection Trip, we were more than happy with the hospitality received, and no pressure was put on us to purchase, however, confidently came home having purchased our ‘Place in the Sun’ at Apollo Village. It was an easy process to buy a property in Turkey, all our dealings in completing the purchase have been hastle free, in addition, we received assistance to purchase furnishings for our new home.
The design and quality of the development at Apollo Village, is first class and we are sure the new homes at Majestic Pine will be equally good.
What is important is confidence and trust in the company you are dealing with, we would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending the developer and their staff as an honest, trustworthy and professional company to deal with.

I am an architect and I have been living in Didim for 19 years. I have designed lots of projects but Aegean Pine Village is the most beautiful place in Didim to live. Because of this I purchased one of the Quattro’s.
It is peaceful, clean, secure and away from the hustle bustle of the city centre, a place where you can hear birds and listen to the sea. It is a place where decent people live with its tennis court, basketball court, two big swimming pools and beautiful landscaped gardens. The site is unique and has 5 different types of properties. More apartments could have been built but this would have meant the complex was less spacious with fewer landscaped areas.
The developer is sound and trustworthy. Property checks were properly carried out by the authorities and the project is in line with the original plans. They gave more emphasis to the environment and architecture than the number of properties they could fit in when they designed Aegean Pine Village.
From what we have seen from most other developments in the area, Aegean Pine is certainly superior in quality in terms of space, layout and design. We are very pleased with our purchase and would gladly recommend the developer to other customers.
A year ago some friends of ours bought an apartment in Mavişehir near Altinkum ‘somewhere in Turkey‘. We thought they were raving mad and told them so in no uncertain terms. Twelve months later we too are the proud owners of a beautiful brand new apartment in the same location at Blue Pearl and our only regret is that we didn’t do it years ago.
On an initial visit to Turkey we fell in love with the Turkish people, the way of life, the weather, the food and the lovely old fashioned traditions that are still adhered to in this beautiful country. No gangs of drunken youths roaming the streets, no drug crazed idiots, little if any crime. We decided immediately to try and buy into this lifestyle and invest in a country that we believe is really ‘going places’. However the same saying applies in Turkey as everywhere in the world and the words ‘Buyer Beware’ were ringing in our ears.
We were shown a variety of apartments with no hard sell and allowed to make an initial deposit with time to find the rest of the funds which was perfect for us as we had to sell our English home to help finance the deal. We decided to add a second cloakroom and relocate a breakfast bar and this work was done after our return to England so there was no mess or inconvenience to us. We were taken to the local tax office and banks and even dug out a solicitor on a Sunday afternoon. Altogether the whole deal was confirmed and legalised within 48 hours amid laughter and copious cups of Nescafe and Turkish tea. What a difference from stuffy English solicitor’s offices!
We can highly recommend the developer and sincerely offer our grateful thanks to them for guiding us through the whole house buying process.

Inspection : Our visit to Altinkum was brief due to a busy itinerary, however we received first class service and a comprehensive tour by the builder, showing us all aspects of their current development, including a visit to their previous complex.
Build : During the construction of Aegean Pine Village we were kept informed of the progress, and received pictures to enable us to see first hand how the development as a whole was progressing.
Completion : We were met at the airport and escorted to our temporary accommodation. The liaison between the construction, maintenance companies and us was very good indeed.
After Sales & Furnishing : The support was efficient and personal with any issues attended to as quickly as possible. We were assisted when purchasing furniture and white goods, but allowed the freedom to browse without any pressure.
Summary : The developer is a company with high standards of design and build quality. Their knowledge and experience in sizeable developments is extremely good, and we would confidently recommend them to any prospective purchaser.
I would like to say thank you for all the help and support given to us throughout our property purchase in Altinkum - Turkey. After four years the apartment is still in excellent condition. We had only ever dreamed about owning a property abroad and when a friend spoke about how they had purchased through yourselves we were very impressed.
From when we first arrived in Turkey to view the new construction at Mege & Pine Tree Complex (next to Apollo Village), to when the deeds were signed and the complex was complete we were treated as very special, had everything explained and shown around Altinkum, which we love.
Anything that we asked to be changed or altered was done so quickly and the whole finish of the complex is of such good quality. We are really pleased that neither the outside or the inside of the complex has needed repainting because the quality of materials used were of such a high standard.
I wouldn't hesitate to buy again from yourselves and continue to recommend you as an excellent developer to lots of our friends.

From first meeting you and all through the different stages of buying my apartment at Aegean Pine Village you have been of the utmost help to me. You have explained everything carefully and with great understanding of someone new to your country and have re-assured me every step of the way. I am very happy with my apartment and the relatively few minor problems that have occurred and do occur on any new building have been sorted by your very able support staff. Thank you all.
I just wanted to share with you how delighted we are with the Townhouse we bought on Aegean Pine Village. The standard and quality of finish far exceeded our expectations, from the beautiful marble floors and worktops to the tasteful landscaping in the grounds. It’s a dream come true.
We had considered other properties in Turkey but were attracted by the build quality, construction guarantee and spacious feel of the site. The location is close enough to town to benefit from the cafes and shops of Altinkum but offers privacy and a peaceful family holiday. The best of both worlds.
We are absolutely delighted with our property and look forward to many happy holidays!

We bought our apartment at Mege & Pine Tree Village (next to Apollo Village) four years ago. We have never regretted our decision for one moment and as we are now retired we have plenty of time to enjoy our new home in the sun. The design and quality of the development with its large swimming pool and attractive gardens, are first class and we are sure your new homes will be equally good.

We would just like to say that we found the developer extremely helpful when we visited Turkey to view Aegean Pine villas. We were put up in one of their existing properties which was finished to a high standard - better than anything we have seen in this country! They took us all around the area over a period of 4 days, provided meals out, and took us to the complex as often as we wanted. We were welcomed into the area and tasted lots of the local and English dishes on offer.
At no time during the trip were we asked for money, and we felt no pressure at all to purchase the property. If anything we were most anxious to secure the deal whilst there was still some left, as once we had seen them we couldn’t bear to lose the villa we had chosen. I can totally recommend the developer. Thanks for your help.
Sue & Nigel Thomson
I can honestly say the process of purchasing the Quattro in Aegean Pine was fantastic, your help and assistance through buying the property, viewing the property and even helping us furnish the villa was faultless and I would have no problem in recommending the developer to anyone who was interested in buying any property from you. I would personally recommend you as being honest, loyal and very helpful in all the above process.
