Mediterranean Traditional Mansions
Yunak Evleri. Cappadocia, Turkey
In Cappadocia's magical landscape of fairy chimneys, in the ancien village of Urgup, is a luxurious hotel carved into a mountain cliff, the Ynak Evleri. Yunak Evleri is a combination of six cave houses with a total of 27 private cave rooms dating back to the 5th. and 6th. centuries and crowned with a 19th. century Greek Mansion. These exceptional cave houses are renovated and decorated with care and in their own distinct style with strictly respecting the local character. The decor is elegant and personalized with beautiful handcrafted furnishengs and antiques. With 27 rooms, Yunak Evleri is small enough to be intimate, yet large enough to offer you privacy. A labyrinth of narrow passageways and curved stone stairways lead to unique rooms tastefully decorated in warm Ottomanstyle. All rooms have private patios overlooking the Turkish Mesa. In the stone mansion at the foot cliffs, an extensive breakfast buffet, including homemade breads, pastries and marmalades, is served. Fresh organic produce is purchased daily. The kitchen is pleased to accommodate specific dietary requests. Evenings are characterized by sunset gatherings on soft upholstered Turkish pillows warmed by an outdoor fireplace. Candlelight dining is offered on the adjacent rooflop terrace.
