|The village and the beach of Vatera on the island of Lesbos in Greece|
Vatera is a village in the south of Lesbos Island, a little over 50 kilometers from the main town Mytilini. The village has about 8 kilometers of uninterrupted sandy beach. This is one beach that seems to extend forever and kilometers of it are as good as deserted, so it also offers something good for those of us that prefer a little privacy. This is by far the best beach that I have seen on the entire island! Because the village is in the south, it is protected from the northern winds that usually come in August and September. Vatera Beach has been awarded the Blue Flag for its clean waters. The area around Vatera invites you for making walks through its beautiful surroundings, to enjoy the nature and several archeological sights. The town of Vatera itself stretches a couple kilometers and is made up of some really nice tavernas, some Italian restaurants, several small bars, and a few shops. It's a place perfect for families, for relaxation and a perfect place for watching sunsets while enjoying a coffee or an early ouzo. The best way to get to Vatera is to take the road to Polychnitou that begins on the main Mytilini road near the gulf of Yera, or if you are coming from Eressos or Molyvos take the road that begins in the eastern part of the gulf of Kaloni. This is a beautiful trip along the gulf and through forests, olive groves, villages and farms.
|Vatera Beach on Lesbos - Madonna Studios and Apartments|
Madonna Studios and Apartments is centrally located, 150 meters from Vatera beach at its most central point, the signs junction. From Madonna it will take you 2 min. to walk to the beach and 5 min. to walk to the shops, tavernas and bars, lining the esplanade. Travelling on the main road from Vrisa to Vatera and just before you reach the beach, there is a small crossroads. You turn left and the property rises before you, holding a vantage point over the bay of Vatera. It is sign posted with a large reflector sign at the right side of the cross roads, with a red arrow pointing to your left, clearly visible as you approach the last 100 m to the beach, and smaller signs at the border and gate of the property. You just cannot miss it now, even at night!
This attractive complex opened in 1990 and is run as a family business. In the beginning it operated as self-catering accommodation for independent Greek and International holidaymakers. In the late 90?s it experienced a very successful three-year period with a well-known UK Tour Operator, but for the last five years a conscious choice was made to revert to its old client group of Independent Holidaymakers and it has done so very successfully. The property has been constantly improved over the years, to keep up with modern trends and requirements. As from late 2004 it has the facilities to provide the Hotel type services of reception, breakfast room, licensed bar, Internet Caf?sale of tobacco, guides, maps, postcards, stamps safety boxes in the rooms and as always nothing is too much trouble for the obliging English speaking owners, Dimitra and Vaios. Prices for the studio's and apartments are cheap and breakfast can be included for 5 euro a day per person (2006).
