A traditional cave-house, built by Ottoman stonemasons, Temmeni Evi is a family-owned enterprise, overlooking Urgup from one of the area’s many stony slopes.
For owners Cevahir and Sadettin Eraslan, it’s clearly a labour of love. Original features have been carefully preserved, and the rooms and communal areas (most with wonderful domed ceilings) are decorated impeccably. Beds are mounted on unusual stone bases, whilst wooden flooring, rugs and well-chosen furniture blend in nicely with the architecture.
The restaurant serves Turkish food, with a few regional specialities, and local wines.
