Perched high above the village of Uchisar, this serenely beautiful and utterly unique hotel is built from ancient ruins, caves and underground tunnels and is perfectly located for the exploration of all of Cappadocia’s treasures. Celebrating Cappadocia’s tradition of cave dwellings, the hotel provides 53 spacious suits with 6 mansions that open onto balconies, terraces and secluded courtyards, often with splendid views of neighboring Pigeon Valley and distant peaks. Capturing the feel and texture of timeless stone and wood, each room is different, designed as a fusion of ancient and contemporary styles. All Splendid Suites even have their own private in-suite swimming pool.
After a rigorous restoration process, argos in Cappadocia is regarded as one of the largest transformation projects in private sector with unique scale and characteristics, not only in Turkey but also in the world. argos in Cappadocia, which emerges as the result of the restoration of a thousand of years old monastery campus, connected caves, sub-terrain tunnels and historical houses, is assimilated within the historical village, scattered fractionally on the hilltop that overlooks to the Guvercinlik Valley of Uchisar Village. This is the right examples of culture preservation and transferring such heritage to the next generations.
Argos and Ecology
Argos in Cappadocia uses drip irrigation system, an ecological method, in its own vineyards and gardens and recycle PETs to make lovely flower gifts to the guests. As in the ancient times, Argos in Cappadocia uses pigeon dung as a rich and natural fertiliser instead of artificial fertilizers. The hotel also reycles solid waste, while passive energy, like solar, wind and soil are used in the other restoration projects, the most important element of ecology unique to the region is the tufa stone that is the best tool for isolation.
In the upcoming year, argos in Cappadocia also aims to use the water of its own natural springs after they are purified, as due to high mineral levels the water cannot be used directly, in the irrigation of the hotel’s gardens and vineyards.
