Tots Exclusive Family Deal
Soak up the Greek sun from this family-fun resort on the island of Lefkada, which is set in stunning grounds, shaded by ancient olive trees.
The sociable resort of Mousses is home to a shared pool area and bar, with weekly barbecues and a friendly atmosphere.
This private villa lets you make the most of the sociability, yet allows you to retreat to your own peaceful haven with a terrace and generous pool.
Take advantage of the fun Clubhouse, which is run by qualified British nannies, and is available for morning and afternoon creche and kids' club sessions. There is a bonus evening creche session on one or two evenings (depending on whether you opt for the half or full day option), so you can enjoy a date night in Lefkada Town.
If you want to take advantage of the Hatchling's Creche or the Turtle Club, make sure you book your little ones in before your holiday.
The Clubhouse is perfect for little ones from the age of six months up to 10 years, with age-appropriate toys, games and books for all ages. There’s a separate sleep room for babies and toddlers, and shaded and enclosed outdoor area to play in.
While the little ones are safely looked after, you’re free to relax by the pool or treat yourself to a massage at Mousses spa.
Outside of the resort, a convenient mini-mart is only 100 metres away, and your package includes a car, so you can drive 10 minutes into the island’s capital of Lefkada or visit beautiful beaches 5 minutes’ drive away.
Please note: We advise that you book the Hatchling's Creche and the Turtle Club in advance as spaces are limited and subject to availability.
A little extra- Your hosts will provide a welcome pack full of essentials and little treats, this includes tea and coffee to make you feel at home, wine and beer to relax with, feta to welcome you to the taste of Greece, as well as more useful bits and pieces.

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 Hancox, Kennedy and Clemmens Families, August 2015
Mousses is a fantastic place to stay. All of the staff were outstanding with an extra mention for the staff in Turtles Club. Our children were asking when it was time for the crèche everyday, I normally have to drag or bribe my daughter to go along. Thank you all for a wonderful holiday
The Howgego Family, June 2015
We've had a fabulous two weeks here with our 2 year old twins. Having been to baby friendly places before that were anything but, we were unsure whether Mousses would really deliver what it promised, and it did, and more! Natasha and her team were great with the girls and we loved our few hours of adult time each day.
The Shadbolt Family, June 2015
We would like to thank everyone at Mousses for giving us a lovely relaxing holiday. Eliza (2) loved the crèche and all the nannies were fantastic. The villa was perfect and the food was lovely. The barbeque evening was an opportunity for everybody to get to know each other. Paul and Sue were always on hand for helpful advice or just a chat and nothing was too much trouble for Paris at the bar. Will definitely return!

The living area has cool tiled floors with two sets of patio doors looking out over your own private pool; the kitchen area has golden mini tiles and wooden fittings, as well as a dishwasher and microwave.
The wooden dining table seats six people and the comfy seating area has a television with a DVD player and UK news channels.
From the living area, the single storey villa leads through to a hallway with the bedrooms leading off; the main shower room is also accessed from this hallway and houses the washing machine.
The master bedroom has a double bed with patio doors leading out to the garden and an en suite bathroom with a corner bath for relaxing in after the little ones have drifted off to sleep; the twin bedroom has plenty of room for a cot.
Patio doors lead out to the garden; these should be kept locked when the room is unsupervised.
The third bedroom can either be accessed through the children’s room or be used as an annexe; this room can be used as a twin or a double room and has an en suite shower room.
Step outside your villa and onto your own private terrace, where you’ll find a shaded dining table, perfect for alfresco meals; although it is not currently shown on the photos, the shaded part of the terrace will be fenced, preventing unsupervised access to the pool.
The generous private pool is accessed through a gate from the terrace; a ladder leads into the shallow end and there are sun loungers poolside. For a more sociable day, head to the shared pool area.
The shared pool area is accessed through a gated fence, and this area leads on towards the childcare centre.
There’s plenty of time for socialising in this family-friendly pool area, with sun loungers to relax on and a poolside bar. The taverna is open for lunch and dinner and can even deliver meals to your villa, so you don’t have to cook all holiday if you don’t want to.
The swimming pool has wide steps down into the shallow end and the separate shallow pool is ideal for babies and toddlers.
A resort barbecue takes place once per week, where you can meet other families.
Take advantage of the fun Clubhouse to enjoy some alone-time and time to unwind. The creche and kids' club here are run by qualified British nannies, who are dedicated to help little ones make new friends and play.
There’s an option of a half-day or full-day session, which are provided at an extra cost, and there’s even an evening creche session, so there’s time for you to enjoy an adults-only dinner one night with drinks - just make sure you book your little ones in for the creche or kids' club in advance.

The Hatchling’s Creche for babies and toddlers provides sensory toys, games and books, as well as a room for napping in. The Clubhouse is full of all the latest toys, games and books, and all toys in the centre are updated every year.
The Clubhouse for ages four to 10 years also has an enclosed outdoor play area, which offers lots of shade, as well as outdoor toys, and there are plenty of activities throughout the day including face painting through to scavenger hunts.
While the little ones are in safe hands, you can find time for a much-needed relax, whether you unwind at the poolside, spend time in your private pool, treat yourself to a massage in the Mousses spa, or pop to Lefkada town, a 10 minute drive away for retail therapy.
Mousses resort is located to the north of the island of Lefkada, just a 10 minute drive from Lefkada town.
100 metres down the road is a convenient mini-mart, and a car is included in your holiday package, with many activities only a five or 10 minute drive away.
Mousses has beach coolers and parasols available free of charge for all guests.
The best time to visit the beaches near the villa is in the mornings, when the sun is not too hot and the winds are calm, as some of the beaches in Lefkada get very windy in the afternoons; ideal for windsurfers, but not for families.
If you don't mind a slightly longer drive, there are beaches along the east coast which are much less windy during the day.
The closest beach to the resort is Milos Beach, which is a five-minute drive away with soft sand and blue seas, perfect for making sandcastles. It is also home to Milos Beach Bar, which is great for food and drinks.
The sea is calm in the mornings and late afternoons at Milos Beach, so these are the best times to take a trip with little ones.
Gyra beach is also a five minute drive away, with sandy beaches and a shingle. There’s a restaurant at the beach bar, where the whole family can enjoy lunch.
Agios Nikitas Beach takes a longer drive of 20 minutes to reach, but it is a much less windy beach, as it is sheltered inside the curve of a bay. The nearby village of the same name is home to some friendly tavernas and cafes, perfect for a spot of lunch.
The town of Lefkada is the island’s capital and is only a 10 minute drive from the resort. It is the perfect place to visit for strolling, shopping and enjoying the local tavernas, as well as visiting the Venetian churches.
If you fancy a trip here while the little ones are enjoying movie night, make sure you see the harbour lights, which look lovely at night. Taverna La Vinaria is just off the main street and serves delicious tuna kebabs.
Nidri is a 30 minute drive from the resort, with a boat trip from the harbour, where you may spot dolphins on your way to Meganissi Island.
For activities while the little ones are at the childcare centre, there’s a beautiful waterfall trail, which leads through vineyards and lemon groves. This walk can be too difficult for little ones, so is not an appropriate trip if you’re taking them to Nidri with you.
Afterwards, visit the fish spa, where your feet will be fresh in 20 minutes, and dine at the traditional taverna, just 400 metres from the falls.
Before booking, please read our Terms and Conditions.
The prices are based on the cost of 2 adults, 1 child (2 to 11 yrs) and 1 infant (under 2) for 7 nights. For 14 nights, or for different party sizes just contact us. The price includes flights and car hire.
