Argo’s slogan is “Wake Up To A Dream” and what a mystical world they’re describing. Situated on the site of an ancient monastery in the Old Uchisar Village, the panoramic views of Cappadocia will mystify you. Inside, you’ll find stunning décor and eco-conscious design. They’ve sourced the finest patterns, pottery and pillows to embellish their already elegant furniture. The rooms are a lovely blend of traditional and modern elements. On the cooler nights, find a fireplace tucked into the walls of your candlelit cave room, and for the warmer nights, wade into a private pool/grotto found just steps from your bed.
Cappadocia, known for its fairy chimneys (tall, thin spires of rock that protrude from the bottom of an arid drainage basin or badland), is quite a site to be seen. Take a tour of Uchisar as well as the surrounding areas of Goreme and Urgup. See stunning frescos on the inside of cave walls. Fly above the amazing geological formations in rainbow-coloured hot-air balloons, check out the “underground cities” used since the Bronze age, head on a rafting tour, trek through this culturally and historically magnificent part of Turkey and embrace your inner cave-being.
Start with a Turkish meze platter (mini dishes consisting of an assortment of tastes including cheese, melon, hot pepper paste, salad, artichokes, meatballs, yogurts, the list goes on) at Siri Restaurant. Finish your meal with some Turkish coffee hot chocolate cake from Seki Restaurant as you watch hot-air balloons glide over your meal.
