Updated: 10 February, 2022 seen 325

This is a short recap article about our latest trip to the region of Kakheti in Western Georgia, during a weekend trip we stayed in a lovely Chataeu Mere hotel near Telavi and explored the nearby vicinity.

We did this trip as indie travelers, first booked a hotel room, then contacted the hotel and asked for transfer service from our Tbilisi apartment to the hotel (and back). For such transfer, we paid GEL 70 (one way).

Once at the hotel (which cost us about EUR 300 for a 3-day stay) we ordered a local taxi service and hired him to take us to some cool local places, for GEL 50 we were taken to the Town of Telavi and Lopota lake. which in fact is quite enough for a slow weekend trip. Our total budget for such kind of luxury, but the independent trip was about EUR 400.
