Yalova was a district of Istanbul until 1995, when it became a province of its own. Sitting on the eastern coast of the Marmara Sea, in northwestern Turkey, famous for its healing hot springs, and local skiing resorts both attracting visitors in all seasons.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founder of Modern Turkey, lived in the city in his final years and once said in one of his famous speeches 'Yalova is my city'. A great honour for the city, his home 'Yalova Ataturk Mansion' is now a much-visited tourist attraction.
Yalova is a thriving area for tourism with its beautiful beaches and blues seas adding to its attraction, property prices are steadily starting to rise as overseas buyers are seeing the potential and moving in to invest in some of the fantastic new developments in the area.
