The Atelier | Artists Retreat
Cappadocia is a place where people had to have a craft, an art form which would serve the household or the community. It could be carpet weaving, pottery, woodworking or something else. Located at the veranda level of Aya Kapadokya, The Atelier Suite used to be the workshop and the storage area for the mansion. Both men and women of the family worked here to provide for the needs of the household. They showed their artistry and expertise when they built the main arch room facing the veranda. In addition to using the space for creative endeavors, the space was used to store dry goods in the protective environment of the inner cave room. Because the working space needed to be inspiring, spiritual and functional, they decorated the walls of the room with beautiful geometric ornaments and unique domed niches.

Aya Kapadokya is a one of the most stunning examples of 19th century Anatolian architecture in Cappadocia. Carved into the hillside, the beautiful cave hotel was lovingly restored from rubble and ruin over a two year period. Today, Aya Kapadokya is home to twelve stunning suites.
