Home Sweet Cave
This restored guest room in Ürgüp, Cappadocia, shows just how cozy a cave can be.
The traditional Turkish couches on the platform are called sedir, and comfy they are for sitting and talking, lounging, or napping.
Note the niches in the walls, carved into the soft volcanic stone whenever the need arose for a place to put something.
Among the delights of the troglodyte (cave-dwelling) lifestyle are intense quiet (sound doesn’t penetrate the thick rock, and the beautiful tawny colorof the volcanic stone itself, brought to life particularly well by incandescent lighting.
Stay in an Ürgüp hotel , or a cave hotel in another town, and discover a cave you can call your own.
