  • Description

    Description

    Our house is located in the village Red Mountain (Tsitelmta, Western Georgia, South Caucasus) exactly on a hilltop where the Chitaishvili or the Children of the birds, have lived for centuries and just like birds they have flown away and returned.

    Our story is the story of three challenges and three returns; three times where the fires of the hearth were extinguished and then rekindled.

    History:

    At the beginning of the 20th century, all of the children of the family had moved away and our great-great-great grandfather Lazare Chitaishvili found himself alone, after the loss of his wife, in our house at the top of our hill surrounded by tea bushes, vineyards and fruit trees. Lazare to preserve the house and estate decided to gift the house and estate to encourage his granddaughter, Marta. It was a rather brave and extraordinary decision to give household to a woman of the family! Almost 100 years from this time, Lika, my mother has decided to move back to her historical, wooden house from overcrowded Tbilisi.

    Vision:

    Komli in Georgian means a family(or group of people) living in a village.

    We love people, good conversations, good food and some wine along with the music!
    We have a historical house with 1 hectare (10,000 square meters) farm that includes a kitchen garden, indigenous vines, hazelnut plantation, bamboo trees, tea bushes and even a small rivulet Kikvata.

    We plan to grow much more!
    We are building various glamping places in the yard.
