Lesbos is a beautiful, tranquil and unspoilt by mass tourism Greek island . Visitors from all over the world are enchanted by its traditional charm and hospitality. With at least 10 hours of sunshine every day of the year, Lesbos has to be the sunniest place in Europe.
It is the 7th biggest of all Mediterranean and the 3rd biggest of all Greek islands with a stretching coastline of 320 km. The island is 70 km in length, 45 km in width with a geographical mass of 1630 sq. km. Situated on the North East Aegean Sea, 180 miles from Athens and 8-10 miles from Asia Minor it is populated by about 110.000 people. Among this number there are people from all over Greece as well as 4.500 Uni students in the University of the Aegean who keep the capital Mytilini vibrant
It is the perfect destination for any traveller who wants to experience the authentic Greek island life, without being worried if there are enough things to do. People in Lesvos have kept tradition alive in towns and villages despite living thoroughly modern lives. The island of Lesbos is almost self sufficient. The variety of landscape, the award winning sand and pebble beaches of every size and description, the mild climate and long hours of sunshine all year round, the rich historical, cultural and spiritual perspective, make LESBOS an island of many options and all seasons. Lesvos Island attracts artists, nature lovers, fans of alternative/traditional living and pensioners who seek a home away from home.
Vatera , located on the south coast of Lesvos 52 km away from Mytilini , and looking out to the Aegean Sea started life as a summer coastal settlement for the people of Vrisa and a place for fishing, agricultural and light industrial activities. Once upon a time it even had its own Customs House, a fine stone building, now sadly demolished. About 20 years ago the wonderful beach (10 km long, 40 feet wide), claimed to be the best in Lesvos was "discovered" , a European Blue Flag became a feather in its cap and the rest is history as they say. The wide and peaceful bay with the crystal clear waters and the horizon of endless blue that is fronting it, never fails to captivate every visitor.
In the space of these 25 years Vatera has evolved into a hamlet in its own right and a very versatile resort all year around. During the winter months app. 150 people live in Vatera, enjoying the peace and tranquillity. It can accommodate divergent visitor requirements and can effectively be most things to most people all year around.
Plentiful quality tourist accommodation: rooms, studios, apartments, hotels, shops, car hire as well as tavernas, restaurants, cafeterias and bars can be found along the stretch of this magnificent beach making it an ideal destination for summer holidays. In the winter time most of the tourism business close but there is enough things going on for the people that live in Vatera all year around ( e.g. myself & my husband )
There are many country walks that can be enjoyed in the surrounding countryside and villages while you discover nature (wild flowers, orchids, butterflies etc) at its best not to mention a visit to the Temple of Dionysus , the Achilles well and Paliopyrgos ( old Castle). Details of these walks and locations are included in the Walks Guide "Vatera Around & About", which you can buy at/from Madonna Studios ( www.vatera-lesvos.co.uk ) to walk independently.
