Find Ton Mari Garden Apartments when you arrive in Paleochora by car
As you enter Paleochora, you will pass The Libyan Princess Hotel on your left. Continue along the main street for about 400 metres, passing Notos and Sabine Travel Agency/car hire on your left then Freedom Street Bar on your right.

Park in the road and walk through the gates and into the courtyard garden.
N.B. Between 19:00 and 02.00 hours every night in the summer, the main street is closed to all traffic, so if you arrive during these hours you will need to turn right off the main street at the 1st cross road after the Libyan Princess Hotel. There will be a No Entry sign at this point in the main road preventing you from going straight ahead; turn RIGHT at this cross road and follow the road round the bend and drive straight along this small road, through 2 cross roads all the way along until you reach the main road that leads down to the sandy beach. Turn RIGHT here and go down this road, past the police station on the right and shortly before you reach the end of the road, opposite the big supermarket you will see the gates to Ton Mari Garden Apartments on the right. You can park in the road outside these gates and walk into the garden courtyard.
