With a stunning view of the blue Cretan Sea “never on monday” 01 apartment is the ideal base for touring around Rethymno and Crete. Based in a quiet neighbourhood, you can enjoy a pleasant 5-minute walk by the sea towards the centre, the Venetian harbour and the old town of Rethymno. In the same building you can enjoy the atmosphere of a private traditional “kafeneio”, where you can spend your free time.
The apartment “never on monday” 01 is situated just by the kafeneio area and is easily accessible by lift, through a patio on Reas Street. This part is also decorated with paintings and other works of art, contemporary as well as vintage furniture. It provides a big wardrobe, a mini- bar fridge, a bookcase and an attractive bathroom. Α solid wood screen separates the sleeping area from the spacious living area, which includes a sofa-bed and a desk. The whole space is kept cool by a noiseless, wooden, eco-friendly fan.
The open-sky view of the blue Cretan Sea extending to the Cape of Chania together with the breathtaking sunset colours will surely provide countless photography opportunities…
Traditional Cretan products such as rusk bread, thyme honey, jams, fresh eggs, local olives, delicious tomatoes, seasonal fruit and oranges for freshly squeezed juices are provided for the visitor in order to prepare their own first breakfast and have a first – hand experience of the infamous Cretan diet. During your stay, you may have a cup of greek coffee or cretan herbs tea whenever you like.
The kafeneio area is accessible from early morning to late afternoon and is an ideal space for reading, playing board games, chess, backgammon or just relaxing with a cup of Greek coffee. It is fully equipped, providing a fridge, toasters, coffee maker – everything you need in order to enjoy your coffee or Cretan herbs tea in a selection of beautiful vintage porcelain cups. Or why not try the traditional local drink, our home- made raki?
Surrounded by works of art, antique objects and delicate colours, we hope this unique space will make you feel relaxed and truly unwind by enjoying the endless blue of the sea and the unique sunset colours of the sky.
The name of our space is inspired by the famous Greek film of the 1960s, “never on sunday”, starring Melina Merkouri, directed by Jules Dassin. An original poster of the film, signed by the protagonist as well as the director makes up the symbol of the kafeneio. “never on monday” refers to taking a break from everyday routine, since Monday has always been the day of the week that brings us back to work.
