Vatheia (Greek: Βαθειά, Greek pronunciation: [vaθˈja], also Vathia) is a little town in Laconia, Greece, on the Mani Peninsula. It is part of the municipal unit Oitylo. It is famous for its grand towers (pyrgoi). Vatheia is situated in a hilly setting, and is linked by road north to Areopoli and Kalamata and south to Cape Matapan (Tenaro). To the north, hills and mountains overlook the town. Farmland and sparse forest cover the valley areas. On the hilltops are abandoned homes, which are colored with earth and topaz along with its rooftops which are like fortresses and were built out of stone south of the village square. Now Vatheia is a tourist attraction in spring because of wild flowers that cover the nearby hills and its scenic views. The nearest villages are Gerolimenas to the northwest and Lagia to the northeast.
