Next to the Andriana and Elena Villas complex is a taverna, located right on the beach and owned by the same friendly family who run the Villas. The taverna has been built with respect to the environment and in a way to minimise disruption to the precious Caretta Caretta turtles.
It has a great reputation and is well known throughout the island for its fresh fish, traditional Zakynthian, international and Greek Cuisine. It is open until late in the evening. This is a fantastic place to dine in serenity, with the sound of the waves gently lapping on the shore, the panoramic views and not forgetting the delicious food in short this is the perfecting dining experience!
The complex is located directly on Dafni beach in the south of Zakynthos, in the Vassilikos area. Vasilikos is known for its green environment and the many sandy beaches like Gerakas, Porto Roma, Saint Nicolaos, Ionio, etc.
Because Dafni beach is part of the "National Marine Park" there are parts of the beach protected because of the turtle nest located there. The endangered sea turtle Caretta Caretta lays its eggs from 10-15 May until mid July and the baby turtles hatch from mid July until mid September.
The surrounding area is ideal for bicycle riding, walking, running, swimming, etc.
Without a doubt, Dafni beach and the greater Vasilikos area is the ultimate destination for quiet, relaxing holidays close to nature.
