With a landscape as extraordinary as this, it’s safe to say that a holiday in Cappadocia will be an unforgettable one. For millennia caves have been carved from the soft rock here, providing homes for the locals for over 2,000 years and now hosting travellers to Turkey in search of an exciting luxury holiday. Though you might have thought the words ‘rocky cave’ and ‘luxury’ would not go together in one sentence, you’d need only a trip to Cappadocia to see that you’d have been very mistaken.
There’s a varied selection of luxury hotels in Cappadocia, some of which are built into the caves themselves. Argos Hotel stands apart for its divine views and rustic charm, whereas the spacious Kayakapi Hotel is more suited to families or large groups.
Fascinatingly, the malleable rocks that formed Cappadocia allowed for a subterranean city to be built beneath it, inhabited by residents seeking refuge from threatening forces. You can explore this underground network with a tour or, for those less inclined, soar up to the skies in a hot air balloon and gaze down at the astonishing architecture, valleys and mountains below, set ablaze with the glow of the sunrise. From your hotel, the view of the hundreds of balloons dotted in the sky is truly picture perfect.
