ECOTOURISM:

Akköy Village and Valley Excursions:

Our village is one of the oldest in the entire region, with unmatched civic architecture and ample photography opportunities as it is simply an open air museum. On top of our village, we have wonderful vineries on the skirts of Erciyes attended by our villagers.

The walk takes about 2 hours and it is most pleasant in terms of the view, weather and scenary. The climb is only moderate for the first 15 minutes and afterwards it is straight on a dirt pathway with incredible vistas.


ABOUT AKKOY:


Akköy is a quiet and ancient mountain village, located about 11 km from Urgup, the tourism centre of Cappadocia. This ancient settlement hosted Hittites, Asurians, Seljuks and Ottomans in its long history. The village's unique architectural style is readily observable in the stone houses carved into the volcanic rock formations. The village was given its final shape during the 1920s and 1930s by local craftsmen who created a spectacular vista of terraced streets and cubic stone houses fully equipped with cave storage rooms, sun roofs, open kitchens and multiple chambers. Akköy Evleri is a fine sample of this exemplary civic architecture in Cappadocia.

We work with the best Balloon Companies in the region for the last 15 years, and they provide door-to-door pick up and return minibus service to the fantastic balloon ride excursion over the unique landscape of Cappadocia.

Saturday Market and Turkish Bath

There is also a beautiful Turkish Bath in urgup which is unisex and thus the entire family or couples can enjoy it together. It is open to guests for a modest fee per person (about 20 USD).


Akköy, Iltas and Basdere Walking Excursions

She made us feel very welcome, even though we only communicated by e-mail and one telephone call. She has caretakers who live next door. I was able to phone them and let them know we were coming. Even though we didn't speak each other's language, the young woman ran down a path to greet us with a warm smile and gandshake when we arrived. She showed us to the house and showed us how to work everything. Told us we could call anytime if we needed anything. Then, she honored our privacy. I said hi to her every morning over the adjoining wall when we were both outside. The house is as advertised. Although very old, it's been refurbished and has modern amenities. It is decorated beautifully with much of the owner's own artwork. We spent 2 delightful afternoons with the neighbors on the other side. We were able to communicate with the help of Turkish-English dictionary. Very warm, generous people. You need a car to reach this house. Also, you must be able to walk up and down rough paths. Once in the house, steps are modern, but must use steps to go to bedrooms and bathrooms and kitchen. We spent time on the patio enjoying the peacefulness and beauty of the valley. It was magical during the call for prayer times.

Nergis was an incredible host. The home is a quaint, lovely house in a remote village. Naturally, I was slightly anxious about how to get to the house and how we were going to get around. Nergis made sure that we knew everything we needed to know and introduced us to a driver, a travel guide, a rental car company, her neighbors... I could keep going. It was such a unique experience to experience Cappadocia from a village with such a local experience. The home was also very adorable and nicely decorated. It did get pretty chilly at night but there were sufficient blankets to keep us warm.

A great house in a village settings away from the tourists and anything associated with tourism yet a short distance to all attractions. The house spacious and comfortable.

We loved our stay at the cave house! The village is quaint and friendly, and we were even invited over by the extremely friendly neighbors for tea and a full breakfast, one of the highlights of our trip. The house is close to all of the major sites in the area, and to the small town of Ugurp, which is very charming and has lots of shopping and restaurants. The house itself is clean, inviting, and truly unique. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended!

We had a great time! The house is in a small village, really quiet, with wonderful views and opportunities to hike. But it's only about a 10-20 minute drive to everything you want to see in Cappadocia. Perfect location, and a really cool house - all carved out of the mountain stone. A great place if you want to be right next to everything in Cappadocia, but also want to have some of your own space, too.

It's hard to explain how special this house, village and region is. It may actually be my favorite place on earth. I've done a lot of traveling, much of it with airbnb, and our experience at Akkoy tops the charts. The house: an incredibly beautiful 3-story stone house that has been so lovingly restored and decorated over the course of a decade. Every corner has an artistic surprise, whether it's the beautiful photography, gorgeous murals or the Turkish rugs and and marble under your feet. We were there in winter, but I can imagine coming back in warmer weather to indulge in the gorgeous terrace overlooking views of the valley. The village: the warmth and welcoming we received from the villagers really set this experience apart from anything else. From sharing meals on the floors of locals' homes to harvesting and cracking our own nuts, our most precious experiences were possible because of the kindness of our neighbors. Nergis is so obviously linked to and adored by her community, and thus they are excited to welcome those that come to these walls. The area (Cappadocia): well, there's plenty online of course, but it's worth saying that every kilometer offers pure magic. Last, but not least, Nergis: What a perfect hostess! We approached her super last minute, and she made everything so smooth and easy while we were on the road. She was quick to respond throughout our stay, provided so many useful details about the area, but mostly what is so special is what she has built, from the inspiring art in her home to the warm connection with her neighbors. We feel so lucky to have gotten to share in it all. We hope to be back and bring our friends and family to share in this special adventure!
