Our office in Eretria
The Swiss School facilities in Eretria are located in a 19th century neoclassical house with a recently built annexe equipped with all amenities. This historical house once belonged to Admiral Nikodimos, one of the heroes of the Greek War of Independence, and served in the early 20th century as a municipal building.
Since the seventies it has been fully restored by the Swiss School thanks to private funding and serves as the School's headquarters in Eretria. It offers accommodation for up to nine people in single and double occupancy rooms, with communal kitchen, bathroom and laundry facilities. There are also a communal workspace with a basic research library (see the catalog) and an office equipped with a photocopier, printer and PC station. All rooms have access to the Internet through an ADSL wireless network.
Archaeologists and scholars carrying out research in Eretria and Euboea are welcome to stay in the house, except during excavation season in Summer.
For any request, please contact the School Secretary.

The School recently restored a second building in Eretria which now serves as a storage house with facilities for processing finds from excavations. This house gives a much needed space to the archaeological Museum of Eretria that was extended in the nineties thanks to Swiss funding, but whose capacity is already coming to an end due to the bulk of recent finds.
