White Family, June 2018
Wonderful holiday. Perfect for sociable toddlers.
The Boulton Family, September 2017
Thank you for a brilliant holiday at Mousses. We all got the right amount of activity/ rest that we needed. The resort was brilliant for young families. We are already talking about going back before our eldest starts school.
Annable Family, May 2017
We had an absolutely lovely stay, the villa was lovely, the pool was great, everything was so easy and everyone at Mousses was friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us.
The Surman Family, October 2015
If you would like to go on holiday with your children, with peace of mind that the staff at your resort are there 24 hours for any eventuality that may occur, then this is the ideal choice. Helpful, friendly staff without being overpowering in a beautiful location, they all made my husband, my parents and my 2 year old feel like royalty :)
The Dalton Family, June 2015
Mousses is ideal for anyone travelling with young children. Natasha and her team at 'Club' (as they cunningly called the crèche) actually made it possible for us to have the kind of holiday we'd enjoyed pre-kids. Our three year-old son and two year-old daughter couldn't wait to get there each morning, and relished the fact that Mum and Dad weren't allowed. Meanwhile, we had time to relax by the pool, pop in to town or get a massage from Christelle. I even read two books in a week - more than I've managed in the past three years. Behind the bar, Paris is the perfect host and especially welcoming of requests from the youngest guests. Plus, the simple, home-cooked food is exactly what you want from a poolside taverna. Our super-fussy son agreed, cleaning his plate on several occasions. Result.
The Joannidi Family, September 2015
What a fantastic experience! First beach holiday with kids but we have all come home happy and rested. Creche was amazing and my son has made lots of friends. We had lots of couple time and family time - it felt like the right balance.

From the living area, the hallway leads off to a downstairs shower room.
There’s a stair gate at the top and bottom of the wooden stairs that lead up to the two bedrooms.
The children’s bedroom has twin beds, which are very low, making them safe for little ones to get in and out of; there’s also a wooden cot in here.
The master bedroom has a big comfortable double bed. This room also has an en suite loo and basin.
As you exit the villa through the patio doors in the living room, you’ll find yourself in your private terrace area.

The shared pool area is accessed through a gated fence, and this area leads on towards the childcare centre.
Sociable families can meet new friends at the family-friendly pool area with wide steps leading into the shallow end of the pool; babies and toddlers can enjoy the separate shallow pool.
Enjoy a drink at the poolside bar or order food from the taverna to be delivered to your villa; there’s a separate kids' menu too, so you don’t have to worry about cooking if you don’t want to.

The Mousses resort is to the north of Lefkada Island, and is just a 10 minute drive from Lefkada Town, which you can visit in the car that is included in your holiday package.
There’s a convenient mini-mart just 100 metres down the road, and remember that Mousses can provide beach coolers and parasols for all guests free of charge.
The coasts of Lefkada often get windy in the afternoons, which makes if perfect for windsurfers. For families, the best time to visit nearby beaches is in the mornings, before the sun is too hot and the wind hasn’t yet picked up.
Enjoy a morning trip to the beach before heading back to your villa for lunch and a nap ready for a fun afternoon at the pool.
If you’re willing to drive further, there are some family-friendly beaches along the east coast, which are much less windy.
Milos Beach is just a five minute drive from the resort and is home to Milos Beach Bar; the beach is covered in soft sand, perfect for sandcastles.
The best time to visit Milos Beach is in the mornings and late afternoons, when the sea is calm, so little ones can enjoy a splash.
The sandy beach of Gyra is also a five minute drive away, which has a restaurant at the beach bar, with plenty for all the family to enjoy.
For a beach that is less windy all day, Agios Nikitas is a 20 minute drive away and is sheltered inside the curve of a bay. The village nearby has the same name and has plenty of friendly places to enjoy a spot of lunch.
The capital of Lefkada, Lefkada Town, is just a 10 minute drive from the resort and is perfect for shopping, visiting Venetian churches, and enjoying a meal in the friendly local tavernas.
When the kids are at movie night, slip off to see the harbour, which is a romantic spot when it is lit up at night.
A 30 minute drive from the resort, pay a visit to Nidri for a boat trip from the harbour out to Meganissi Island, and you may spot some dolphins on your way.
For a trip when the little ones are at the childcare centre, go on the stunning waterfall trail, which leads through lemon groves and vineyards. The walk can be quite difficult, so is not an ideal activity if the kids have come to Nidri with you.
Just 400 metres from the falls, there’s a lovely traditional taverna, and if you’ve exhausted yourself from the walk, take a trip to the fish spa, where you can dip your feet in tanks and they’ll be feeling fresh in 20 minutes.
