Gemstone - Esbelli House in Cappadocia, Urgup.

So it looks like something out of The Flintstones, and you have to share your room with fossils. But Esbelli House - originally a series of higgledy-piggledy cave houses - is designed for 'real' travellers. There are just seven sparsely furnished en-suite bedrooms (Phone and a state-of-the-art sound system are the only concessions to modernity); and if you fancy a beer, you help yourself. Family heirlooms can be found all over Esbelli House, which is run as a home rather than a hotel. When you have expored Urgup (a wonderfully quiet, authentic Turkish village compared to nearby tourist trap, Goreme) chill out on the terrace with a raki, and eye up the huge stone phalli, the upshot of volcanic eruptions millions of years ago.
