Retreat Projects

Heritage Conservation

After a rigorous restoration process, argos in Cappadocia is regarded as one of the largest transformation projects in private sector with unique scale and characteristics, not only in Turkey but also in the world. argos in Cappadocia, which emerges as the result of the restoration of a thousand of years old monastery campus, connected caves, sub-terrain tunnels and historical houses, is assimilated within the historical village, scattered fractionally on the hilltop that overlooks to the Guvercinlik Valley of Uchisar Village. This is the right examples of culture preservation and transferring such heritage to the next generations.

Argos and Ecology

Argos in Cappadocia uses drip irrigation system, an ecological method, in its own vineyards and gardens and recycle PETs to make lovely flower gifts to the guests. As in the ancient times, Argos in Cappadocia uses pigeon dung as a rich and natural fertiliser instead of artificial fertilizers. The hotel also reycles solid waste, while passive energy, like solar, wind and soil are used in the other restoration projects, the most important element of ecology unique to the region is the tufa stone that is the best tool for isolation.

Irrigation

In the upcoming year, argos in Cappadocia also aims to use the water of its own natural springs after they are purified, as due to high mineral levels the water cannot be used directly, in the irrigation of the hotel’s gardens and vineyards.
