Located in the heart of Cappadocia on the site of an ancient monastery in Old Uchisar village, is Argos in Cappadocia. Following a careful restoration of the remains of historical dwellings, underground tunnels and caves, the hotel offers guests not only a wonderfully unique place to stay but also a front-row seat to take in the otherworldly views of this magical landscape.
Argos presents 51 rooms and suites set across cascading terraces formed from unearthed caves. Spaces hewn from the volcanic rock create a monastic atmosphere, complete with modern comforts, luxury furnishings and spacious en suites that have been delicately designed to mould into the surrounding rock. Many rooms boast awe-inspiring views across the vast landscapes and in addition to this, the Kavak Manion and Splendid Suite each have their own private pools. For a toasty winter escape, a number of rooms also encompass a cosy fireplace. For the best views, visit the hotel's terraces and courtyards, where you can across Pigeon Valley and over to the majestic peak of Mount Erciyes in the distance.
Traditional Turkish dishes are served in the SEKI restaurant, where meals are created using fresh herbs and vegetables grown in the hotel's garden. Following dinner, unwind in the relaxing setting of the SEKI Lounge and enjoy a tasteful Turkish tea while admiring the changing colours of the luscious landscape as the sun makes its descent. The hotel also boasts an extensive wine list. The SEKI Wine Cellar is the largest cellar in Turkey and supplies national and international wines, as well as those produced from grapes grown in the hotel's very own vineyard.
This wonderfully unique hotel has been carved out of the remains of historical dwellings, underground tunnels and caves, offering the perfect balance of earthy beauty and luxurious living.
