                                  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


                                  Owner info

                                  About the owner: We are a family living in the North of Scotland - we love the complete contrast that Cappadocia has to our normal life.

                                  Why the Owner Chose Guzelyurt:
                                  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!

                                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                                  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.
