The Village Cave is located in the village of Cavusin, in between the towns of Avanos and Goreme. Opened in 2005, it is the first boutique hotel in the village. It has only six rooms, of which three are cave rooms and the other three are stone arched rooms. It is a convenient walking distance to Rose Valley, Red Valley and Pasabag Valley.
Mr Halim Oz is the owner and operator of this small cave hotel. He is from Cavusin and opened the hotel in his own village.
This accommodation provider has taken action to address one or more issues (whether environmental, social or cultural) which will contribute positively to the long term viability of the destination and hence their site displays a Caring for the destination rating.
Main area of focus in Caring for the Destination:
The main idea behind building this cave hotel in Cavusin was to help the village become a destination for visitors.
Detailed description of the Caring for the Destination Initiative:
The hotel was built into the old cave houses already existing, by using local stones and wood, and employing the services of local craftsmen, without altering the village's image.
Most of the staff comprises locals, and the majority of the products and services are sourced from local people and local shops.
