Artists House, Oni
The family owned hotel, Artists’ House, located in Oni could proudly bear the name of a museum. Every detail of the building reflects its local culture. The host can proudly show you prehistoric bugs and shells dating back 50 million years. Weapons and pots from ancient Georgia are exhibited together with recent paintings and handmade furnishings created by the host. All artifacts have been collected by the family’s members. Double and triple rooms cost around 30-40 USD. Homemade dishes and local wine are served upon request and hiking tours can be arranged for interested guests. Although summer is the peak season for visiting Racha, the fall colors during September and October are an underappreciated joy. The landscape is at its most picturesque during these months.
When visiting Racha don’t forget about their mouthwatering local dishes; Lobiani, smoked pork, and semi-sweet wines like Kvanchkara and Tvishi.
