Mousses Crèche and Kids' Clubs - Lefkada

Our aim at Mousses is simple: family holidays without the fuss, a place that is as relaxing for adults as it is fun for children, in one of the most child-friendly destinations in Greece. Judging by the number of guests who return year after year, it’s an approach that resonates with many.

The villas are set in lush, sub-tropical gardens, shaded by venerable old olive trees and with plenty of grassy space for play. Some houses are detached, others semi-detached, but each offers its own private terrace plus the home-from-home comfort and space that is so key to a holiday with young children.

The atmosphere is tranquil but not hushed, with the gentle air of sociability that is part and parcel of being a parent of little ones.

Our own privately-run kids' clubs sits in the same grounds, offering flexible morning or afternoon sessions run by fully qualified nannies.

At the heart of the grounds, there’s a big, sparkling swimming pool, with plenty of sun loungers for the grown-ups, and a shaded, shallow pool for toddlers and non-swimmers. The poolside bar and taverna offer an indulgent restaurant service – Greek with a modern twist – and the child-friendly menu means there’s absolutely no need to cook unless you want to. You can even have food delivered to your villa, at no extra charge. If you’re feeling sociable, you can join the barbecue evening organised by the exceptionally hospitable owners Eleni and her son Zois, and if you're longing to slip away into nearby Lefkada town for a romantic dinner, let your little ones take advantage of a movie night in the kids' club.

Many of our families spend almost an entire week at Mousses without leaving the grounds, but it is a shame to miss a late afternoon on the beach at nearby Agios Ioannis. For those who can stretch bedtime a little later, this is the perfect spot to linger over a glass of something perfectly chilled at sunset, while the children let off any end-of-day steam playing by the water.

Our Hatchlings Crèche accepts infants from 6 months to 3 years, the Turtles Club accepts children from 4-6 years and Dolphins accepts children from 7-11 years. The clubs work alongside one another, with a separate area for infants and age-appropriate activities for our Turtles and Dolphins. The crèche and clubs operate five days per week; please ask for full details.
