A Little Santorini to be Built in Turkey (video)

The deterioration of Greco-Turkish relations in recent months has not deterred a Turkish businessman from unveiling plans for the construction of a housing project named after the Greek island of Santorini.

Park Life Santorini (Park Yaşam Santorini) which occupies an area of 21,000 square meters in the Turkish town of Izmir borrows features from the cosmopolitan Greek island.

The project will consist of 507 apartments as well as 17 detached houses.

At its center it features a windmill, although critics point out that the mill is more reminiscent of the landscape of Holland or Mykonos rather than Santorini.

Prices start at 228,000 Turkish lira, around €46,000.
