Apesia Village, sometimes pronounced Apeshia, is located in the Limassol District of Cyprus. It is around 16 kilometres north from Limassol on the route to the Troodos Mountains.

Apesia Village lies at an altitude of 480 metres above sea level and lies just at the southern end of the Troodos Mountains. It lies in the small valley created by the two rivers, Garyllis and Limnatis.

The proximity to Limassol enables the inhabitants to reside in the village and easily commute to work in Limassol. The village also attracts people from Limassol who wish to own a weekend or summer house in the village. There are around 500 permanent residents in the village.

The village produces olives, almonds, grains and is most popularly known for it's carob production.

The most famous attraction of Apesia Village is the Terebinth Tree, which has been calculated as the oldest living tree in Cyprus, at over 1,500 years old. It shows no sign of decay due to large amount of water located just beneath the soil in the village.

There are two large churches in Apesia Village. The church of Ayia Zonia, the new main church and built in 1998 AD and the church of St George, built in 1898 AD.
