Hosts are a loving and cheerful family, eager to share this love and cheerfulness with their guests. Rooms are nice, at least ours had a private bathroom. Food is great, every meal meant around 12 different dishes and great homemade wine. Maya and her husband are really nice people that really want you to feel in their guesthouse like at home - and we definitely did, we felt like a part of their family. They prefer to communicate in Russian, but they are very determined to communicate also in English. Two lovely Tikos speak English. Tikos and Nugzari the artist can dance traditional Georgian dances and are willing to teach you some steps. Last but not least - Miki the smiling dog! If you visit Aitsuradzes, do not hesitate to ask them to show you a leaflet with a wonderful portrait of Maya and Miki.
Maybe the place is not the cheapest for travellers on a budget, but definitely worth its price. You can stay at the guesthouse and relax in a garden full of fruits or enjoy youtube parties with the hosts. Although Atskuri seems to be in the middle of nowhere, if you want to go hiking, an entrance to Borjomi National Park is just 1,5 km away, there are also some impressing ruins in the village. Atskuri is also a good starting point to other interesting places - we got really fast to Wardzi and Rabati.
We will definitely come back next year!
