It all started more than 30 years ago. Back in 85, when Amparo and Vicente (François’ parents) returned to their hometown, Sagunto, after a long stay in France. They had emigrated to France, like many other Spaniards, looking for a better future in France. Annecy was the chosen place and there Amparo devoted herself to the culinary world and learned from the best chefs in the area. Among others, Marc Veyrat, who has been selected the best chef in France on several occasions.
Currently, our cuisine is based on the vital and gastronomic journey initiated by the family in France. We add the Mediterranean roots with seasonal ingredients, giving space to producers in the area to offer a creative, personal, and healthy proposal.
We have a firm commitment to the spread of wine culture. In 2003, we founded the Club Enófil Sagunt and François is currently Vice-President of Beaujolais, a non-profit organization in Valencia, which organizes the presentation of the Beaujolais Nouveau every year, as well as different activities around wine culture and gastronomy.
His passion for wine leads him to travel many kilometres to get to know wineries and he renews his wine list with the most interesting wines each year. At LeFou restaurant, we offer one of the best, most curious, and extensive wine list in town.
Dining, eating or simply having a drink on our terrace, surrounded by history, beauty and serenity, become a unique pleasure.
Do you have a better plan?
LeFou and music
At LeFou we are in love with music, and we are always ready to support any initiative related to it. Back in 2010, together with ADETURSA (Association for Tourism Development in Sagunto) we launched Nits Màgiques (Magical Nights). Years later, we continued betting on Raconets or Ressona festivals, organized by the local association Sagunt Reviu, and also Crepuscle festival.
La Tira de Dones
Amparo is a ceramist specialized in archaeological reproductions and an active member of Tira de Dones, an association of women artists from Camp de Morvedre that has been preparing a multidisciplinary collective exhibition on the 8th of March for more than 25 years, with a different topic each year in order to support different causes through fundraising. In addition, the association adorns the balconies of the ascent to the Castle for Sagunt a Escena festival in summer.
Sagunt a Escena
Our family is providing service almost since the first Sagunt a Escena Festival and we have worked in partnership with the festival management team, and with other companies by organizing their catering services. This effort has been rewarded over the years with the privilege of having received in our restaurant famous cultural figures such as Nuria Espert, Joan Manuel Serrat, Josep María Pou, Sara Vargas, Concha Velasco, Franco Batiato or Georges Moustaki….
