The School’s excavation house in Eretria

The Swiss School facilities in Eretria are located in a 19th century neoclassical house with a modern 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 excavation house 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.
