Ecovillage Tris Elies

Ecovillage Tris Elies

Where we are

At first glance the village of Tris Elies in the Cyprus Troodos Mountains (700m) reminds you of the tale of Sleeping Beauty, it is almost untouched with only a few inhabitants remaining.
Small plots of farm land and old houses are surrounded by beautiful forest and other green areas. The village itself consists primarily of traditional buildings. Our idea is to rebuild this community based on the concept of humanity and mutual support within a sustainable healthy environment.
