Tsitelmta village farm house Komli near Ozurgeti, Guria province, Georgia.
Off the tourist track, the roads in subtropical Guria weave through densely forested hills and valleys - reminiscent of Thailand or Sri Lanka - past walnut and fruit orchards and tea plantations. Ancient Orthodox churches sit on roadsides or perch on hilltops.
Join a tour on the Tea Road and find out how the organic teas are produced.
For a slice of authentic Georgian life, stay at historic farmhouse Komli with views to Gomi Mountain in the Lesser Caucasus. Guests are invited to explore the small vineyard, tea garden, and bamboo plantations.
Join three generations of Gurian women for a night of storytelling, toasting, and the finest Georgian food prepared with fresh ingredients from their garden. The hosts also offer cookery masterclasses, tea tours, and guided trips to Gomi Mountain a strange and otherworldly place above the clouds. Locals decamp to the mountain in summer to escape the humid heat.
The quaint, cobbled-together metal and wood self-builds sit on the skyline above a yellow carpet of perfumed azalea. It’s a magical place, well worth the hour-long drive up the rough but spectacular mountain road.
