What the AdventureTemples travel community says…

As much as we love adventure, we also appreciate coming home to a luxury retreat. After a day out horse-riding or trekking through the fairy chimneys, you are in for a simple yet wonderful surprise. Never have you been in a room more peaceful, dark and pleasantly cool, until you have slept in a Cappadocian cave. Close your door, turn out the lights and let the world melt away.
