Cemal Ranch is a family owned and operated business, located just minutes from the centre of Ortahisar village in the heart of Cappadocia,Turkey. Cemal, along with his father and brother, have been riding since beforethey could walk and are experts on the riding trails in and around Cappadocia. Their horses are lovingly cared for, sure footed and trail-wise and suitable for all levels of riders from beginner to advanced.
The ranch itself feels like you are 'discovering a little known secret' as despite its close proximity to the village, it's located in a spectacular private 'fairy chimney' valley with amazing panoramas across the countryside. With rustic open air pavilions, sweeping views and barely a road in sight, Cemal Ranch is the perfect setting to relax and enjoy a glass of Turkish tea before or after your horse tour.Cemal takes pride in offering a safe riding environment with well-trained horses and his experience as a guide will ensure your ride is a highlight of your Cappadocian visit.
The charming ranch house is a perfect place to enjoy traditional Turkish dishes cooked by Cemal's mother. She personally cares for every guest, serving local dishes accompanied with homemade organic jams, grape syrups and Turkish spicy tomato salsa. Many guests come back to Cemal Ranch on a regular basis just to enjoy her leisurely brunches with family and friends.
Cemal Ranch is highly recommended on Trip Advisor and is featured in many guide books including Lonely Planet's Turkey Guide.
