A UNESCO World Heritage Site in eastern Turkey, Cappadocia is like a moonscape of volcanic terrain with cities built into the natural landscape full of “fairy chimneys”—towers of soft undulating rock carved by the winds of time.

We profiled the new 42-room Argos in Cappadocia in our March/April 2012 issue. The luxury hotel was created out of the ruins of the 2,000 year-old Bezirhane Monastery, once used as a hostel for camel caravans plying the Silk Route. The stone buildings, barrel-vaulted caves and underground tunnels were carefully preserved following a 15-year renovation, with open-air stone terraces overlooking fragrant valleys lined with vineyards and apricot groves.
