Our farm is at a short distance from the villages of Ortahisar and Urgup. Located in the heart of the national park, away from roads, it is the perfect starting point for nature trails and the exploration of Cappadocia's most famous valleys.
We share our home with 25 horses, dogs, cats, chicken, goats and a donkey.
Our horses live together in a herd, which contributes to their well-being.
Don't look for boxes or a manège: when they are not on trail, our horses are grazing in the fields around the farm.
Our main activity is to organize weekly tours for European guest.
We are a couple leaving in a troglodyte house with our 6 years old boy, we try to do lots of thinks by ourself, we have a vegetable garden goats for milk, few bees and chickens.
Our Ranch is owned and managed by French-born Nicolas. Nicolas decided to make Cappadocia his home over 16 years ago and has been organising horseriding trails since then. He speaks English and Turkish.
