Living in Mahmutlar

Shops, restaurants, bars, small kind of discos (hotels), one large disco, car-rentals, handy-crafts, hairdressers and, of course, Turkish Baths. (In fact, if you want it, Mahmutlar has got it.)
For children there are many small parks, equipped for playing. And after a walk, you can rest on a bench, in the sun, in one of the many small green parks. When we feel warm in the summer (maybe too warm) there are two good options:


The beach
The place for relaxation. The place for enjoying a cold beer, for games and for activities. Maybe lunch. A place to meet. All this can be done whilst enjoying the sea-breeze to cool you down.

The Taurus mountains
It is love at first sight. It happens to every one of us. We could write a whole book about these mountains, but you would have to experience this for yourself.

Every Tuesday the east end of Mahmutlar changes into a big market place. In this market the main products are clothes, bags and also plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts and sweets. In fact, it is paradise for the shoppers.

On Saturday you will find the main market near the clock, with all the above.

Normal shops are the same as you would find in Europe. In fact you do not have to leave Mahmutlar, it has everything.

Sporting and games
As in the rest of Turkey, football is number one here. Mahmutlar has football-fields, used by many people. However, many other sports can be found. Whether your sport be is active one or playing cards sitting in a local tea room. All of these can be found in Mahmutar.

Turkey is a republic, based on the same governmental system as all European countries. Mahmutlar is a town, and is run exactly like a town should be run by this system. The difference is that this town has so many Europeans that also their culture is taken into consideration. The previous mayor, Alaattin Çakır, had a vision to make this town the most popular amongst European people for the future. This seems to be fulfilled!

If you have a second home in Mahmutlar, better learn this word right now: Belediye. The municipality.
