† Andreas Fasoulakis

by jean h » 30 Jul 2021, 07:16

We are so very sorry to tell members of the Forum that Andreas Fasoulakis, the owner of the Lefka Ori restaurant and hotel, has passed away after recent poor health and surgery. He was 87. Our deepest sympathy go out to his wife Evangelia and children Giorgos, Manolis, Giannis, and Maria.

We came to know Andreas during our first stay in Sfakia more that 40 years ago, and his warmth, hospitality, lively story telling and sense of humour, and wonderful food are part of the reason we kept coming back year after year. We can’t imagine Sfakia without him, and are grateful for having had the privilege of his good company for so long.

Rest in peace, dear old friend.

This was very sad! Our deepest condolences to the family!

A great man is gone!

Was he the last one in Sfakia who really took part in the operations during WW2??

Very sad news ! My deep condolences for his family and friends .

Every time when I was in Chora Sfakion I like to eat in Lefka Ori and admired Andreas standing with high age in the kitchen cooking so good food . And I know him out of the wonderful book from Peter Trudgill "In Sfakia" .
