Vatsounia is ten kilometres from the centre of Mouzaki at an altitude of 430 meters. The village has its own special natural beauty and is sparsely populated. The area is thickly forested by chestnut, fir and oak trees. Chemical analyses demonstrate that the fresh waters of Vatsounia are among the purest in Greece. There are three local springs, but only one, the Sklithro Spring, is easily accessible by footpath.
