Smurfiest Smurf Investment Vacation Homes in Turkey

by Johnny Debacle

What would you say if I said that you could live like a smurf? Would you say was I acting a little smurfy? Or that I was positively smurftastic? If the latter, then we have a great investment opportunity which will allow you to take advantage of the Turkish real estate boom.

Smurf Village located in Akbuk Bay, Turkey, within 500 meters of the Aegean Sea.

There are five discreet reasons to invest in a vacation home within Smurf village:

  1. To leverage yourself to the rising tide of Turkey as it joins the EU and narrows the economic gap to Europe.
  2. Turkish real estate also offers a natural hedge to…the rest of your portfolio. (Note: We don’t actually know what “natural hedge” means)
  3. Gargamel has reached a cash settlement to stop his campaign of smurf terror.
  4. Smurfette will go all the smurf with you; if you liqueur her up with a thimble full of wine cooler, she may even do it smurfy-style. YMMV.
  5. For the smurf of it.

Recommendation: Although not as attractive as the opportunity we saw in 2004’s Cypriot real estate market, the Smurf village has some really smurfy-smurf things that we feel smurf about. Definitely worth doing more smurf dilligence on at This prototype home looks pretty smurfy.

    I am all about Smurfs, and hate to quibble. But Turkey is not going into the EU. It’s a Muslim thing unfortunately. Militarily, they are a bit active for the EU’s liking. And I don’t see either side giving ground. Maybe in a decade…

    “Wine cooler” should read: “Smurfoff Ice.”

    Turkey will be part of the EU within 10 years. Assuming of course that there is an EU in 10 years. When investing in Smurfestate you should be thinking smurfterm, not short term.

    Also, smurfoff isn’t a drink. It’s what I do when I’m alone.
