"Above and beyond our expectations - Can't wait to come back!"
Jaw-dropping canyon valley hikes, bike rides with endless views, and sunrise/sunset yoga to start and end each day with mindfulness and appreciation... This is truly the stuff dreams are made of!!
We cannot thank Niyazi enough for this unforgettable experience. He was so thoughtful in planning our daily activities and accommodated all our last minute wishes (we loved the cycling portion so much that we wanted another day of it!). Niyazi was so knowledgable about the locally grown food, and it was a fun experience eating the wild berries and walnuts while we hiked and biked around. The hotel we stayed at, Petra Inn, was impeccable and sits right on top of a hill so you're guaranteed to get the best views of Cappadocia. The service was excellent, and we loved being greeted daily by Ardic, the sweetest hotel dog.
This retreat was the PERFECT combination of challenging and restorative. Thank you so much Niyazi for sharing your home with us!

"A piece of heaven"
If you are looking for a peaceful spot, away from stressful cities; if you feel the need to ground yourself; if you want to get in touch with nature, biking or hiking, along wonderful trails; if you want to practice yoga on the top of a rock at sunset or while looking at sunrise having hot-air balloons passing by you...well no doubt...this is the place!
Niyazi, perfect yoga instructor and guide, will make all the above possible.
A special note goes also to Petra Inn in Uçhısar, a brand new hotel, situated in a quiet place, with a breath-taking view over the valley. Selma hanım, the owner, put high attention to details, from the food served at breakfast and dinner to the music played in the balcony near the restaurant. You will feel like being home.
See you soon Cappadocia!

"Magical Fairytale Trip"
Filiz, Serpin and Niyazi were such lovely people who treated me like family. Filiz and Serpin helped me plan my action-packed days around my hiking/biking/yoga. I had to cut my trip short, but they made sure I had airport transfers both ways, cooked me homemade dinners every night and I was able to try some special Turkish dishes! Also, recommending great lunch spots and booking everything for me, from ATV tours, hot-air ballooning, underground city transport and hamam. Niyazi is a knowledgeable guide who grew up in the area. He customized the activities to my skill level and I got to see things I never would've found on my own, such as a café in the middle of the mountains, white raspberries off the tree, ancient churches and beautiful scenery. Everywhere I went, was awe-inspiring. Every night after I’d return late from being out all day, Feliz and Serpin made sure I had dinner and we chatted every evening like old friends. They shared the history of the hotel and were able to accommodate me in a room with a spectacular view of Cappadocia region, and I got to play with the little kittens that live in the old caves behind the hotel. I travelled by myself to Cappadocia, yet never felt “alone”. I hope I can return soon and stay longer!

My experience in Has Konak was unique, Cappadocia is a beautiful place and I wouldn’t have explored its hidden treasure if it wasn’t with Has Konak. Each of Filiz, Neyazi, Ismail and Serpeil have made me feel at home and welcomed. Being a solo traveler I felt so safe. I have already recommends it to my friends because I have enjoyed it so much that I want them to explore Cappadocia the right way with these amazing people in Has Konak. It’s a place where I would love to visit again!!! Thank you for everything ...

"Amazing experience in a stunningly beautiful location"
Each day the programme was different, according to my level and how energetic I felt, which was great. In the end I felt like I saw a lot of the area whether by bicycle or hiking, but it wasn't too exhausting. Doing yoga on the hotel rooftop or in the beautiful landscape was incredible. There was a full moon while I was there and a full moon walk was improvised, which felt magical. The hotel felt like home, with delicious home made food and lovely staff.

"Perfect Mix of Yoga, Biking and Nature"
I really loved the stunning nature of Cappadocia. I am thankful that i could stay in this fascinating area in a beautiful family managed hotel which was built in an traditional house. Thanks to Filiz, Serpil an Ismail for your hospitality, flexibility , and for your cooking! I love the view from your roof terrace and from my cosy room. Especially the view for sunrise with all these hot air balloons was magic!
Thanks to Niyazi for being such a good guide and great Yoga teacher. You found always the perfect spots for doing Yoga... in the middle of nature or at special spots in the village. I enjoyed a lot the biking and hiking tours showing our group places away from the mass tourism but at the same time we could see so different places in the valleys. Thank you also for your flexibility and kindness! It was a perfect stay for me!

These 3 days with Niyazi were perfect. The cycling, hikings & yoga classes in nature were wonderfull, and the hotel (Petra Inn) view is stunning! He is an experienced and trustable person. He really takes care of you and follow your energy level. I totally recommend him. If you come to Cappadocia and you like nature, do not hesitate in contacting him ! <br>

El entorno, la Capadoccia, es maravilloso. Todas las actividades que realicé se adaptaron a mi nivel (yoga, ciclismo, senderismo). El trato recibido fue muy bueno.
