Living in a cave in Ortahisar, Cappadocia, Turkey


This is the living room in Evelien Bogaart's beautiful cave home in the old part of Ortahisar, Turkey. Her home is partly carved from the rocks and partly built with the local stone. The walls are very thick and keep the house cool in summer, while the temperature outside is more that 40C, and warm in winter when it can be as low as -25C.

You can get a taste of Cappadocia from the video right, and see more of Evelien's cave home here.
