|Meet Turkish traditional villagers at our exclusive tour.|
Cappadocia is traditionally a rural region with most villagers practicing sustenance farming - only with the recent influx of tourism has this changed in the more popular regions but some villages retain the charm of traditional Cappadocia. The daily life of a traditional farmer in this region in summer is growing all foods (including seeds and nuts) to preserve for the long winter. Women traditionally make all their own butter, cheese, yogurt - as well as pastas and breads. Most homes in this region feature the rural 2-story home with the livestock under the house and the living quarter for the family above. In Cappadocia the homes generally have one large room where the entire family eats and sleeps together. Our tour will bring you to one family where you can experience daily life - that could include making yogurt and butter, planting or harvesting, making syrups, etc. Most of our guests learn many new techniques for creative gardening, cooking, the art of making Turkish tea as well as getting to experience the hard-working, yet generous life and hospitality of the Cappadocia village family.
*The tour is available year-round with spring, summer and autumn the more active times - in winter the daily activities center around staying warm, feeding the livestock and creating handcrafts (knitting, crocheting, sewing) for the coming year.
