Vatos is a small and tranquil village in the centre of Corfu island, about 12 km from Corfu Town. Although Vatos is located in the hills, it is only a few minutes drive from some of the most famous beaches of Corfu, such as Ermones, Pelekas, Glyfada and Myrtiotissa. Vatos is also on the Corfu Trail, the wonderful walking route from north to south of the island.

The village is surrounded by lush greenery while the valley around Vatos was actually a lake that has been dried today. Ropa Valley, as it is called, occupies an area of 10,000,000 sqm and extends all over central Corfu. It is a vast green meadow where herbs of sheep graze and numerous cultivations prevail, mostly olive trees and vineyards. River Ermones crosses the valley, forming beautiful lakes. Beyond this valley hosts an amazing 18-hole golf course and a driving range near Ermones.

The region constitutes an important life reserve, the hospitable refuge for various species of birds, fish, amphibians and reptiles. It is definitely worth exploring the meadow by car, bike, or on foot.

A regular bus service connects Vatos with the neighboring villages and Corfu Town.
