Spring is the best time of year in Alanya

For this blog post we had a little chat with Yildirim Kabasakal who is responsible for all service related questions and tasks at 2Base. 

We wanted to know about his best tips for restaurants, advise for property owners and a lot more.

If you have ever visited our office or send us an email, you will most likely already know who he is.

Lets hear what he has to say...

Winter, spring. summer or autumn: Which is your favorite time of year?
Definitely spring. Spring is the sign that summer is coming soon. I like this period because it is more quite and not so hot than summer. 
During spring the air and sea is very clean and it is a great time to swim and play beachvolley which i enjoy a lot.

Where would you go for a Sunday brunch?
On the castle almost on the very top there is a place named Muhtarin yeri. There breakfast is the best and very traditional with fresh bread, eggs, omelette, vegetables, different kinds of cheese and of course fresh tea. Sundays are very busy but the place is great and i can recommend it. From the restaurant there is view all the way to Gazipasa.

You have been living more than 20 years in Alanya. Can you offer any insiders tip on best things to do?

A new real life Escape Game (www.kilit.in) has just opened in the city center. It is a new kind of game where you have to escape from an apartment by solving some puzzles. It was great fun.
Also i can recommend driving towards Gazipasa and BBQ on the beach... Just remember to clean after yourself and not leave any garbage behind.

Your best restaurant tip for local food?
For lunch i would recommend Adil Usta (Just opposite of 2Base office) or Mini Mutfak (Close to the big mosque in the bazaar). 
Also i like Ramiz Köfteci (next to Mudo at the Atatürk statue) and the Tantuni place acroos from Tespo at the 35m road. Especially the Tantuni place is little known and very local.

Your job is to deal with all service related aspects related to properties. What is your best advise to all property owners in Alanya?
Do not forget to control your apartment when not using it. At least once a month someone should open and air your apartment, otherwise it might get damaged. Not so long ago i visited an apartment that had not been aired for a very long time, and the ceiling was full of mold.
