The Ano Asites artit residency is located in a quiet village, on the Greek island of Crete, half an hour from Heraklion city. It is run by the more establish Lakkos artists residency in Heraklion city. The village residency is perfect for creative people, who are looking for some isolation, to work on their projects. It runs for twelve months of the year.
