Thanks Micki, "the self service is organized by the the owner of the taverna Akrogiali at Lykos beach."

I've already thought of something like that.

many greetings from Hamburg, kv

Kalimera, Livanianá is one of my favorite villages on the island.

Only a handful of people still live here. At the census of 1821 there were 170 inhabitants, in 1823 107 inhabitants.

In September 2015 Eike took over the former Kafenieo from Livanianá for 7 years. Before that, Tilmann ran it for several years.

Before Tilmann it was run by the Katounatákis brothers, who were mainly shepherds, and their mother. The specialty was the rabbit stifádo.

In April 2019, after a lot of rain, there was a rockfall / landslide in front of Eike's café.

2 weeks later, Eike closed the café because security in and around the café can no longer be guaranteed. In the past few days, more and more stones have been falling and there will be no solution in the near future.

She thanks all the people who have supported her over the years and wishes everyone a wonderful time in Sfakia.

The cafe was still closed in summer 2020, but drinks were available on a trust basis. Price list hangs on the refrigerator, next to it a box for the coal.

Self-service is organized by the owner of the Akrogiali tavern on Lykos Beach. The Manousoudakis family also runs the Villas Livaniana (2 apartments) in Livanianá.

Ta Leme, kv
