Esbelli Evi Urgup, Cappadocia, Turkey

The Esbelli House is a seven-room restored cave dwelling, with bedrooms dating back to the sixth century. I'd like to see something in Europe beat that. One of the rooms is the old kitchen, complete with oven, and another the former stables. The owner, Suha Ersoz, spent years restoring the house and his taste is simple and cultivated. Home of the Troglodytes, Cappadocia is also one of Turkey's most spectacular geographic and historic destinations. Sandstone valleys sprout towering chimneys, and ancient churches are carved into the rock and painted with startling friezes. But, for the most romantic experience of all, go ballooning over Cappadocia's supernatural landscape at dawn. You land in a field of wildflowers for a champagne breakfast (cost, $210 per person). Arrangements can be made through the hotel.

Season: May and then late September/October are the best times to beat the heat and the tour buses.

Pricing: For all rooms, $80 (based on double occupancy, including breakfast).

Ask for one of the honeymoon suites, but book well in advance, they are often sold out.

Booking:

For direct hotel bookings (to get prices quoted above), email the hotel directly at suha@esbelli.com.tr
