Sprawled across the site of an ancient monastery, argos in Cappadocia is a gateway to another time.
The hotel emerges from a 2000-year-old historical network of ancient ruins, caves and underground tunnels, all lovingly restored by visionary owner Gökşin Ilıcalı, and in consultation with master architect Turgut Cansever over a period of 20 years. The result is a country heritage-style retreat that thoroughly represents the spirit of Cappadocia. Perched just above Uçhisar Village, the experience is framed by a spectacular scene of canyons,
mountains and the famous ‘fairy chimneys’: a remarkable snapshot of Anatolia’s multifaceted landscape.
In a unique twist, living spaces reveal age-old stone and give the taste of the magic of village life here. Literally carved from caves, imaginative rooms and suites are sprinkled through seven revived mansions and demonstrate an excellency in craftsmanship. Decorative touches, such as Turkish carpets, adorn each space, while artifacts sit cradled in rustic alcoves and capture the essence of this distinct Mediterranean heritage.
