Enjoying panoramic views from the lofty town of Uchisar, Argos in Cappadocia envelops its guests in age-old luxury and romance. The thousand-year-old monastery has been carefully restored on the hillside and now provides discerning guests an attractive gateway to the mystical fairy chimneys and Pigeon Valley.
Comprised of four mansions with differing styles and floorplans, the 34 rooms and suites of Argos in Cappadocia are crafted of stone and accented with antique touches. Choose from standard or deluxe rooms, or opt for a suite with a separate living area – all spaces that whisper of the ancient intrigue of the surrounding area. The spacious Splendid Suite includes an amazing in-room cave pool, a romantic place to relax. All rooms and suites include an in-room fireplace, iPod docking station, en-suite facilities and beautiful views of the valley.
The grounds are meticulously landscaped, set off by the beauty of the restored buildings. Each dwelling is connected by a series of underground tunnels and caves, part of which are now home to the hotel’s wine cellar. Sample the delicious wines crafted with grapes from the property’s vineyard and enjoy a glass over dinner. International and local fare is artfully prepared at the Seki Restaurant where guests may dine indoors or on the terrace, the chimneys in the distance. For light bites or coffee and tea, visit the Tiraz cafe, famous for sandwiches with a signature sauce.
Beyond Argos, Uchisar’s village beckons with traditional stone homes, ancient churches and of course the renowned chimneys to explore. At every turn find nooks carved into the stone which serve as homes for rock doves and pigeons, symbols of love and prosperity. Relax outdoors and watch these birds dart in and out of the gardens and vineyards. Farther afield, tour to Mt. Erciyes, one of the volcanoes whose ash helped form the chimneys as we know them today. Hike Uchisar Castle, the tallest fairy chimney, and from its summit look down at the beautiful city below. Endless land tours through the mountains and valleys are possible, or soar over the region in a thrilling hot air balloon.Request Information
