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.
