Simpson Travel says

If you’re looking for family time together and flexible opportunities for your kids to be in safe hands enjoying activities with others of a similar age, we think we’ve struck the perfect balance.

  • qualified team
  • hotels or villas
  • private nannies
  • flexible timings

You’ll find a bespoke crèche and kids’ activities in some of our delightfully low-key small hotels and villas in Lefkada, Crete and Corfu plus the option of private in-villa nanny service in Corfu and Mallorca.

Mousses is a family-friendly villa resort close to Lefkada town and beaches, with 12 two- and three-bedroom villas, a fenced pool, shaded toddler pool, taverna, lawned gardens and the warmest of hosts, Eleni and her son Zois.

Our on site Crèche and Kids Club is staffed by a team of qualified English-speaking nannies who run morning and afternoon sessions – the Hatchlings Crèche provides care for children aged 6 months up to 3 years, whilst Turtles Club keeps 4 to 6 year olds entertained and Dolphins gives 7 to 11 year olds more of an adventurous experience with lots of outdoor activities. In 2022, childcare at Mousses for the morning or afternoon sessions is complimentary during most of May, June, September and October with a modest charge in the peak season. Baby-sitting in the evenings can also be arranged (extra charge).

Simpson Beach Life is an even more informal and complimentary activity programme for children aged 5 to 11 who are staying at Bella Mare Hotel (Corfu) and GK Beach Hotel (Crete), two of our own beachfront Simpson Hotels. It’s also available to guests in three of our villas in Corfu – The House at Bella Mare, Villa Eva and Villa Georgia.

We’ve tried to think of everything to make your holiday as stress-free as possible from complimentary infant packs and a nappy ordering service to family-favourite villas throughout the Med well-stocked with fun garden games and a box of toys.

If you have older children, check out our teen-friendly villas, chosen for their location.
