Yes, cave hotel! Not some beautifully crafted new buildings you find in Ideal Home or House and Garden, but a genuine cave where soft volcanic rock’s hallowed out to be a room or even a home.
That day commenced at 4am Eastern European Time. Where our eyes were barely opened and still filled with pinpoints of somnolence, Quentin and I stepped out of our room into a cold, quiet night. From where we were, on top of a cave hotel, in the heart of Goreme’s old historic village, we saw the silhouettes of fairy chimneys spread across the land.
