Cappadocia, in the central Anatolian highlands, is surely one of the most unusual landscapes in Turkey. Villages built into rocks, still inhabited until 20 years ago, strange tuff rock formations, subterranean cities, cave churches, as well as villages where time has stood still A fairytale landscape with people continuing to live in accordance with traditional ways of living.
We have selected Ayvali Köyü, a small village, virtually untouched by tourism, surrounded by the tuff rock landscape of Cappadocia, whose inhabitants have built there houses partially into the rocks.
The place does not have any of the noisy atmosphere of Görem or Ürgüp, and no-one will try to sell you carpets or souvenirs here. The tranquil atmosphere allows you for perfect relaxation and it is not uncommon to be invited by local residents to have a glass of tea when strolling around the village.
Many German airports now offer flights to Kayseri, making this destination easily accessible. 'Open jaw' flights with return flights from Antalya, Dalaman, or Bodrum are also possible and allow you to combine a stay in Cappadocia with one at the coast.
