TROODOS MOUNTAINS, CYPRUS
The ancient spa village of Kalopanayitois has for centuries attracted visitors and pilgrims,
John Papadouris spent decades working abroad only to return to his disappearing and neglected village in Cyprus. After raising funds and investing his own money, he’s driving a restoration project to preserve a culture and connection with the past in his mountain village, Kalopanayiotis.
In more recent history was a community built around agriculture, the land and cottage industries. However, the 20th century experienced a drain, as people left their villages to find work in cities and abroad.
Now with 41 guest rooms in 7 houses across the village, as well as cafés and restaurants, villagers have been inspired to invest in their own community, restoring their homes and opening small businesses, preserving our mountain culture and way of life.
To the future, there are many projects in full swing - all related to reinstating the way of life and connection to the land that was lost during difficult times. Vineyards are being re-established, orchards regenerated and historic buildings restored.
