Due to substantial amounts of undeveloped space, and its distant location from Istanbul city center, property for sale in Çatalca Istanbul is sparse but customers who buy real estate in Çatalca Istanbul are tapping into an idyllic area preferred by many Turks for its laid-back lifestyle. Sitting in European Istanbul, the population of 69.000 also enjoy a greener landscape compared to central Istanbul’s urban dwellings.
It earned its historical fame by being the last line of defense during the Balkan wars and has a few historical buildings including the Ferhatpasa mosque and fountain, and the Byzantine Inceğiz monastery, but these days, people admire it more for its beautiful flora.
Although its beauty shines all year round, during April and May, when purple and pink blossoms signal the first sign of spring, Çatalca is exceptionally stunning. The flowers are also the city’s logo and official sign and celebrated during the yearly Ergüvan festival. Oak, pine and mortuary trees dotted over the hillsides also add to the region’s picturesque appearance.
The New Istanbul Third Airport and Fatih district, i.e. the historical old city are just one hour drive away. Bordered by the Tekirdağ, Avcılar, Küçükçekmece and Arnavutköy districts, it is just a two-hour drive to the Bulgarian border.
Sitting in the east Thrace region, it covers 1715 kilometers and the 135 kilometers of coastline, makes it popular with Turks from inland. Owners of the property in Çatalca Istanbul have the benefit of being close to many highlights, attractions, and amenities, yet are far enough to indulge in a peaceful lifestyle devoid of city trappings.
Attracted by the seaside location, and carefree lifestyle, many Turks from big cities own holiday houses for sale in Catalca and the local council has ongoing culture, health, social and neighborhoods’ projects to keep up with its growing popularity.

Due to the undeveloped status, land often comes up for sale, and the large plots are ideal for anyone who wants to design and build their own apartment or villa in Çatalca.
39 smaller neighborhoods make up Çatalca, and real estate buyers, locals who are interested in Çatalca apartments for sale and tourists particularly adore Yalıköy. Formerly called by its Greek name of Potima, the 1923 Treaty of Lausanne altered the face of Yalıköy when Turkish families from Greece swapped houses with Greek residents.
These days, life is calmer, and the small population of 2500 people living in this typical Black Sea coastal resort, also have access to many forests. Hence the principal trades are fishing and forestry. To tap into city life benefits, locals use the 404 bus to and from Yalıköy into the center.
Çilingoz Tabiat Park, also in the same district is a wildlife protection area. Covering 43 acres, the beautiful combination of forests, a long beach and lake is a favorite weekend getaway for city workers.
