My wife and I turned up in Vathi feeling tense and tired out after a tough year and a long journey. We could not have chosen a better place. Vathi has half a dozen restaurants, a bar and a few apartments. It must be just about the most laid back place on the planet.
We stayed in the Xanthakis apartments, halfway down the beach (the road stops on the edge of town, so most places are reached via the beach). John Xanthakis is an exceptionally charming host and he and his family put in a lot of work to keep the apartments spotless and the gardens lovely.
The result is a simple, comfortable and welcoming place to stay in a stunning location. All this and the souvlaki in Manolis restaurant at the other end of the beach!
