A Perfect Combination of Eras — Argos in Cappadocia
Picturesque view of unusual and slightly mystical landscape stretches in front of Argos in Cappadocia, where the entire village breathes history, perpetuated in dwellings carved in rocky hills.
The spirit of rich, ancient, and considerable history prevails in all corners of the Uchisar town. The hotel brings colours into the history and adding a modern touch to it, – beautiful, refined, and stark.
Large-scale work of bringing the modern project into life was under the guidance of the architect Turgut Cansever.
Incredible terraces between the private residences offer breath-taking views of unusual landscape of the Pigeon Valley, created by lava and winds. All hotel rooms, a total of 51, were individually designed, with underground tunnels connecting some of them. But one string, history and respect for tradition, connects all parts of the hotel. It is wonderfully expressed in carved wooden furniture, traditional Turkish tapestry, and a variety of decorations placed in the niches. And how priceless are the combination of a fireplace with the live fire and a swimming pool surrounded by stone and candles!
Particular attention should be paid to Bezirhane, a monastery carved in a rocky mountain, which has been restored and now hosts impressive concerts and dinners.
One of the terraces with a marvellous view is filled with the tables of Seki restaurant, with wines of your choice being served from the cellar down the tunnel. Vast choice of wines has been noted by Departures.com that awarded the resort as “One of the best wine resorts of the world”.
In addition to this prize, the resort was awarded with many more: Conde Nast Johansens Awards for Excellence 2015: “Best Countryside Hotel”, “Sustainable Hospitality and Corporate Social Responsibility” in 2013, Green Award in 2010.
