Sheltered from the heat by its picturesque hillside location, the popular resort of Hisaronu combines a lively nightlife with the stunningly beautiful beaches of Olu Deniz. Today, there is a strong demand for property in Hisaronu and the surrounding district of Ovacik, as investors seek to capitalise on the rapidly expanding market for tourism throughout the wider Fethiye region.
Foreign investment, development and capitalisation on the idyllic setting have catapulted the resort to become one of the most visited destinations in the area. Proximity to the sprawling metropolis of Marmaris has also helped Hisaronu grow rapidly in the past two decades. With consistent building work, new properties are being opened every month – giving property investors an excellent chance to take advantage of the properties for sale in Hisaronu.
Hisaronu shares a coastline with both the Mediterranean and the mouth of the Aegean Sea, along the same shore as Bodrum, Didyma, Fethiye and other popular Turkish resorts. The town’s beaches are less than 2km from the centre of the resort, meaning less than 5 minutes in a local taxi or a leisurely walk. The town is well serviced by air travel, with three airports within 70km of the resort – Diagoras, Dalaman and Milas-Bodrum. The latter is the largest of the three and is around an hour’s drive away. The nearest large cities are ?çmeler, 25km away by road, and Marmaris, 20km by road. The capital of Ankara is more than 650km away, whilst Istanbul is certainly a flight away – at more than 800km travel by road. Hisaronu faces out into the Mediterranean Sea and the popular island of Rhodes is a short boat ride from the shore.
Hisaronu was a relatively unknown fishing village until developers noticed the area in the early 1990s. With an original population of less than 500, Hisaronu has sprung into life with more than 3,500 permanent residents today. This number can swell by five times during the summer season when tourists descend on the hotels and apartments dotted around the town. The developments were originally intended to serve the larger nearby resort of Ölüdeniz, but Hisaronu became a resort of its own. Friendliness of the locals and an inexpensive cost of living has made the region extremely popular with Brits and Western Europeans looking for property for sale in Hisaronu – especially those seeking the cooler climate and an escape from the busier Turkish resorts.
The location of Hisaronu is its greatest selling point, giving tourists a tranquil and beautiful place to stay whilst exploring the local area. With Marmaris just a short car ride away, Rhodes just across the bay and Fethiye along the coast – Hisaronu is a popular ‘base camp’ for foreign visitors and people looking to invest in properties for sale in Hisaronu. A number of excursions and activities can be launched from the town, from scuba diving and paragliding to treks into the forested valleys inland. The nightlife of Hisaronu is vibrant and European, with plazas and bars spilling out onto the street and venues open until the early hours.
