My husband and I stayed at Aravan Evi for two nights this past August. Our room was beautiful and spacious (including hand embroidered linen). The outdoor terrace has an amazing view of the town of Ayvali and the surrounding landscape, plus is filled with bright potted flowers and grapevines.
We rented a car through the hotel (very convenient) and received helpful advice from Okan in terms of sights to visit and driving directions.
Best of all, every meal we ate (two breakfasts and two dinners) was incredible and the service was impeccable. There were multiple courses, all freshly prepared with seasonal produce by the Yazgan family. The dishes cooked in the outdoor clay tandoor oven were particularly good, especially the beans and fresh flat bread. We will always have fond memories of relaxing evenings spent enjoying the sunset with incredible food and a great bottle of local red wine.
We would highly recommend both the hotel and restaurant to any visitors to Cappadocia. You will not regret staying outside of Goreme or Urgup (which are filled with too many tourists!). It is simple to rent a car and the roads are very quiet to drive on.
We hope to return one day...
