To rent a car - or not? You can stay in the garden without renting a car. If you wish to see the surroundings or go to the ocean we recommend renting a car, maybe sharing the expenses with other guests. We have good experiences with Zorbas, who has car rentals in Heraklion and Chania. They are service-minded and we often get prices better then the list price. Call Margarita to make a reservation on +30 281 031 9641. Her English is fine. zorbasrentacar.gr
Taxi to and from Heraklion We have a good relationship with Yorgos, a taxi driver, who drives from Heraklion Airport to the garden for 40 euros. His wife answers the phone and speaks good English. It’s nice to know that they are very reliable - even if you need to be picked up at 5 in the morning. Call before and order the trip on +30 694 508 3388. In Heraklion the chauffeur will hold up a sign with your name on it. Other taxis cost 50 euros and you cannot be sure they know the place and are willing to drive all the way to the site. The key word to use with them is The Eagle's Nest, the name of our neighbors’ place which is known by more people.
Caretaker On some occasions you can make an agreement with the caretaker to pick you up in the airport, that will cost you 30 euros.
