Luxury cave house in the village of Goreme, part of the Unesco world heritage site of Cappadocia. Situated in a quiet part of the village surrounded by locals still enjoying a traditional way of life. 5 minutes walk to the village centre which has local amenities such as small convenience shops, baker, butcher, pharmacies and many restaurants. The house is built around a courtyard and has further outside space on 2 terraces which have stunning views of the fairy chimneys. 1 is used as an outside eating area with barbecue. 2 double bedrooms with ensuite shower rooms. A further family suite comprising large double bedroom, twin room, lounge and family shower room with double shower. Fully equipped Dining Kitchen with fridge freezer and oven with gas hob. Lounge with large traditional sedir seating, chairs and feature cappadocian fireplace. Utility room with washing machine. Central heating for the colder months. Air-conditioning not required due to the natural atmosphere of the caves.
Please note that the Family suite, Stable bedroom and Blue room bedroom are all accessed seperately from the courtyard meaning family members have privacy from each other. It does however mean that some bedrooms may not be suitable for unsupervised occupancy by smaller children.
Thank you for a wonderful stay. I'ver tried to submit a review on the home away website and have been unsuccessful. Here is what I planned on writing – would you post it for me. Thanks,
A Fantastic place for families
We were two families and the house was perfect with 2 four year olds, a five year old and a six year old. The arrangement of the rooms worked really well and the kids loved the courtyard and the terraces. The house could even work for 3 families with small children.
In the morning watching the balloons fly from the upper terrace was fantastic. We took the two older children on the hot air balloon trip and they loved it (but they were a little short and had to sit on our knee to see).
We ate breakfast every morning at the Aydinli Cave Hotel for 5 euros each and it was nice. A trip to Ilhara valley and underground city was a highlight. We also ate dinner at Seten restaurant - and the staff were great and the food delicious.
After the kids went to bed we enjoyed sitting outside and watching the sunset and having a glass of wine. It was the perfect temperature. We thought it might be cold in the evening but we never needed more than a light jacket (in June).
Highly recommend this house if you are traveling with a large family or extended family or friends.
Thank you Ian and Louise for making us feel so welcome and renovating a beautiful house.
We are a family living in the North of Scotland - we love the complete contrast that Cappadocia has to our normal life.
The traditional cave houses of Cappadocia are amazing. If you visit the area you MUST stay in one! This house was derelict when we purchased it so we spent a considerable period of time restoring it using traditional techniques whilst adding the luxury of modern conveniences. We believe we have produced a unique home which not only provides a place to rest and relax but an experience you will never forget!
A beautiful cave house right in the heart of the National Park - you are right at the centre of the magnificent landscape. Plus you have all the conveniences of Goreme on your doorstep should you wish to use them.
Please note that the map location is slightly incorrect as we are in the upper part of the village near to the Kelebek hotel and Sultan cave suites.
Goreme is the heart of Cappadocia with its magical fairy chimney rock formations and cave churches. This gives the Goreme national park UNESCO world heritage status. Hot air balooning is the best way to see this unique landscape. Other amenities in the village include horse riding, quad-bike and mountain bike tracks. Goreme is home to the open air museum which houses some of the best preserved early Christian cave churches. Tour companies in the village arrange daily tours of other sites in the area such as the Ilhara valley and the underground cities. There are a number of wineries in the area which welcome visitors and Avanos (a few minutes by road) is famous for its potteries. Goreme has the best central location for any visit to the area and has a host of restaurants and shops selling Turkish carpets and village crafts. The house is located in the upper part of the village, boasting spectacular views and is surrounded by local homes still practicing a traditional way of life.
Other Activities: hot air ballooning, quad-biking, Turkish baths
