How to get to Chairetiana:Poster Chairetiana

To get to Chairethiana you need to take the old National Road from Kastelli to Koleni via Drapanias (the way the bus goes). After Kaloudiana, direction Drapanias, there is a signpost/turning for Chairethiana, which quickly forks. Take the upper road that winds up to the village. As you enter there is a small parking on your left. You need to park somewhere along this road and then walk up the cobbled path, to the left of the parking, up to the old school building on the hill on your right. There will be signposts from the Kaloudiana road for the duration of the exhibition.

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And nine years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
