Kfeir (Arabic: الكفير‎) is a small village nestled 900 m above sea level, in Hasbaiya District (Qada’a), an administrative division of Nabatiyeh Governorate (Mohafazah) along the steep slopes of the top of the Jebel Sheikh in Lebanon.

The village enjoys mild summers of an average temperature of 25ºC. However, the winters are much colder and the village receives heavy snow. Kfeir’s high altitude allows fog to form above the hills even in summer, giving the village a mystical and spiritual scenery.

The inhabitants of Kfeir are Christians and Druze, and they mainly cultivate olives, pines and other fruit trees.
