Iliahtida Team


Hi! My name is Manolis!..

My origins are from a place called Tristomo in Karpathos island, Greece…

Here at Tristomo I lived for the first three years of my life. My family then moved into the capital of Karpathos, Pigadia for financial reasons.

For the last 15 years I have started slowly to come back at Tristomo, the place I was born, thus my home. Nearly 5 years ago I started implementing a plan to restore Iliahtida a traditional Green House.

This project first of all represents my true presence at Tristomo and the creation of a daily life, based on activities such as, cultivation, fishing, beekeeping etc.

Then I want to do everything I can to help Tristomo, a place that participates on the Natura 2000 network in the heart of the third Sea Park of Greece.

This is a dream that I hope to complete with much effort, work and the help of people who will come to Tristomo and Iliahtida to live with me real experiences in the area, and also help protect this unique site.

Hi! My name is Vickie!..

From my first years here in Karpathos, i remember the walks we went with my father to the mountains to find wild greens, mushrooms and herbs. Fishing with the boat sometimes longline and other times angling…

During the Summertime on the farm with my grandfather and grandmother I’ve learned to treat the trees and take care of chickens and goats.

The years passed by and studies and family kept me away from nature and all that i loved.

Getting to know Manolis, a man who loves nature like me, gave me the opportunity to come into contact with a world that was for me a lifelong dream.

While my involvement in tourism from the position of director in my family’s hotel and my contact with people from other countries and cultures helped me understand that we humans have a need to get in contact with the environment and the urge to do things for its protection.

This is Iliahtida Project.

I’m Vilma the crazy girl!..

Vilma is the mascot of Iliahtida Project…

It is a very lively dog that likes to run free and to feel the love of people.
