Turkey Homes have great pleasure in presenting this lovingly restored property for sale in Cappadocia, a stunning traditional cave home in the popular area of Goreme in the ancient Anatolian region of central Turkey.
Cappadocia is a magical place and one of Turkey's major cultural and historical centres as well as a major tourism destination with an increasing number of visitors every year, currently in excess of 2.5 millions from around the world, honeymooners, trekkers, backpackers etc.
The rough moon-like landscape of Cappadocia was formed over 5 million years ago, as lava over spilled from volcanoes forming rocks that over the years have been eroded by the elements which now resemble pillars and minarets, often called fairy towers by the Turkish people.
Many of these formations were carved into underground cities with churches and monasteries, and Cappadocia is said to be the place where Christianity began, and some underground tunnels and cities are still being discovered today.
So how do you reach Cappadocia? The area is very accessible, though a long drive by car or bus from the southern coastal areas or Istanbul, domestic flights from Istanbul, Izmir, Ankara and Antalya to Nevsehir airport take less than 1 hour.
This beautifully resorted cave home for sale in Cappadocia is located in the heart of the region in the highly popular touristic area of Goreme, approximately 40 minutes from Nevsehir, Kapadokya airport and only a 5-minutes walk from the town centre, with a host of shops selling all kinds of handmade items, pottery, carpets and gifts and restaurants serving traditional Turkish dishes of the area, and all beautifully carved into the rocks.
Also located just a few minutes walk to the stunning local countryside where you enjoy leisurely walks through the valleys and explore the ancient churches and monasteries, and wonder between the fairy chimneys, and gaze at the numerous hot air balloons that fill the skies, another popular reason to visit the area, said to be one of the best areas in the world for these hot air balloon rides, and is quite often the perfect time to go down on one knee and pop that all important question!

A second archway hosts a patio door leading out onto a stone terrace area for alfresco dining or simply relaxing taking in the views of the fairy chimneys and the hot air balloons gently gliding over the local landscapes.
