Go Back in Time
To an ancient, romantic and mysterious land characterized by fairy chimneys, underground cities, Byzantine monasteries and churches with beautiful frescos and paintings. See beautiful old Greek cave houses built over 300 years ago with stone carvings inside and on their exteriors. Hike through Gomede valley and Ihlara Canyon with their amazing rock towers, where wind and weather have eroded the soft volcanic rock into hundreds of strangely shaped pillars, cones and "fairy chimneys", often very tall, and in every shade from pink through yellow to russet browns. Visit underground cities where early Christians took refuge from first Roman conquerors and later Arab raiders.
Stay in the Upper Greek House
A beautifully restored old Greek villa at the top of the old Greek Village of Mustafapasa. Sleep in a lovely restored cave bedroom with modern bath furnished in the ancient Greek/Turkish style. Drink tea or famous locally grown wine while sitting outside on one of the lovely high terraces overlooking the village and surrounding hillsides. Walk through the village, shopping the local markets. Eat and be entertained at the Old Greek House, famous for its authentic Turkish food, served in the same setting for over 300 years.
This is a wonderful place to bring a family to experience the history, mystery and fun of Cappadocia. Outdoor enthusiasts will love to hike through the valleys and walk, shop and eat in the village. It is very safe for walking both day and night. We can also arrange for private Turkish cooking lessons.
The hotel can help arrange tours and hiking opportunities in the area. And one day you might take a balloon ride over this amazing area for a view you won't forget. One of the local balloon companies will provide transportation to and from our hotel. We can arrange private transportation or you can use the local public transportation to visit other villages in Cappadocia. Also, airport transportation can be arranged by the Upper Greek House.
Have a vacation few of your friends have experienced or bring them with you so you can share all this wonderful land of Turkey has to offer.
