It was a really nice hike inside the valley itself, and a must for couples.
Start the hike at noon or after noon and you will reach at sunset back to goreme.
Strongly recommended and very romantic.
Its about 6.3 km

imi138 is writing about the Love Valley in the Zemi Valley section. Zemi Valley's lower entrance is between Goreme and the Open Air Museum. It is a very nice valley with some not so easy to walk parts and 5.6 km from one end to the other. Definitely worth a walk with nice rock formations, but if you are tight on time you would probably want to skip it as you would need transport back or walk a complete loop back to Goreme. It would take you almost a whole day.
On the other hand if you are referring to Love Valley that you want to visit, imi138's description to reach the valley is correct. With your own transport you can drive quite close and it will be a maximum of 5 minutes walk to see the pinnacles. There is no official parking there and not much space either, but it is usually not so busy, so well worth driving as close as you can get to save time.
There is also a very nice view point overlooking the Love Valley that can be easily reached by car. It is on the road if you continue to drive towards Nevsehir. You will have to turn left after around 1-2km and drive all the way to the edge of the valley. When we were there it was not sign posted, but you can't miss it as the road or rather path is frequently used.
I hope my explanation is of use to you.
