Simpson Crèches

For busy parents, our professional childcare is a gift that allows you to relax completely, knowing your child is safe and happy. In two lovely locations in Lefkada (Mousses Villas) and Zakynthos (Periyali Villas), our Hatchlings Crèches and Turtles Children’s Clubs create a warm and caring environment where every child, from six months to ten years, feels welcome. In fact, before your holiday, we'll ask you to complete a form so our fully-qualified nannies know exactly how to make sure your little one feels perfectly at home.

Being a small, close-knit team, we deliver a truly personalised service and flexible session times to fit around you. Combine that with comfortable villa accommodation, lovely gardens and a beautiful beach nearby and you have a family holiday that works for everyone.

Quotes

  • "Our whole trip was excellent. I didn't believe that with a toddler we'd manage a relaxing holiday, but we did! The staff were excellent - approachable and friendly without being too in-your-face. I would thoroughly recommend the resort, and much of that is due to the staff and the attention to detail of the whole experience."

  • "Mousses is the perfect resort for travelling with small children – I never knew it could be this simple on relaxing! They've thought of everything and the staff there make you feel like family. They cannot do enough for you and our daughter absolutely loved the crèche. The standard there was exceptional and I wouldn't hesitate to leave her with any of the nannies."

Periyali Villas, Zakynthos

A collection of light, bright family-friendly villas, each with a small gated pool and a larger swimming pool to share; a sandy beach just a ten-minute walk away and a peaceful location on the Vassilikos Peninsula: these are family holidays the Periyali way.

Mousses Villas, Lefkada

Alongside lush gardens, a large shared swimming pool and a separate children's pool, Mousses looks after parents as well as their offspring with spa treatments, its own taverna (including a villa delivery service) and a bar with an indulgent poolside service.
