Yunak Evleri  

There’s something inherently thrilling about being in a cave. The environment is so different to what we usually experience. In your cave-room no outside sounds penetrate the thick rock walls and a deep peace settles your soul as you take to your bed for the night. Rooms are decorated in traditional Ottoman style and you often find yourself at the top of the cliff in the Greek Villa, lounging on cushions, enjoying the cool Turkish night. The cave dwellings date back to the 5th Century AD and the hotel is named after the ‘yunak’ or village fountain, where the women would gather to wash and talk. The ‘yunak’, therefore, was the center of village life and gave the hotel its name. You can take a hot air balloon ride over the Cappadocia region which is famous for its crazy rock formations, poetically named ‘fairy chimneys’. And then a real treat, you can witness the ceremony of Whirling Dervishes – an unusual religious practice where devotees literally spin around and around to achieve enlightenment. Pony trekking and mountain biking are alternative ways you can explore this unique and beautiful region.
