With first-class childcare on hand at the Simpson Crèche & Children’s Club, grown-ups can come off parent duty for a few hours of blissful poolside reading or an indulgent massage. With the lush green gardens safely fenced, little ones can run around to their heart's content – and you can avoid the aftermath of tired tears with a dinner delivery to your villa terrace from the Mousses taverna.
A firm favourite with families, many returning year after year, Mousses Villas is on the beautiful Greek island of Lefkada: a destination where children can make a splash on award-winning sandy beaches as their parents engage in some stress-melting sun worshipping. Meanwhile, Lefkada Town welcomes families for evenings, the Grecian way, at lively seafood tavernas – and, with car-free streets, it’s ideal for navigating with a buggy. Or take advantage of the weekly ‘date night’, an evening session at Mousses Crèche & Children’s Club, to steal a romantic dinner for two.
Whether or not you’re a frequent visitor to the Mediterranean, it helps having someone to show you what you might be missing.
Graham Simpson, the founder of Simpson Travel, has spent over 35 years exploring beautiful destinations across Greece, Corsica, France, Mallorca and Turkey – and from 2017, Italy will be added too. The result is a unique, handpicked collection of boutique hotels and luxury villas that place their guests at the heart of what makes these idyllic spots unmissable.
It’s all about exceptional service – the service you receive from the London-based team who arrange your flights, car hire and helpful extras like airport lounge access; the care and attention of local representatives who are there as much or as little as you need them while you’re away, and thoughtful touches, such as complimentary welcome packs, that make all the difference.
