Greek islands with toddler and baby - anyone stayed in a good villa?

DH fancies going to Greece this September but he hasn't been before and I've only been once pre-children.

I've tried researching various places but it's hopeless starting from scratch.

So... we're after a child friendly villa with 2 bedrooms, near a town so we can walk to tavernas and maybe the beach. Easy to get to without having lengthy/hassley transfers. Any recommendations?

TIA

Greek Options are good. Stoupa is wonderful for small children.

Direct Greece are brilliant too but no website unfortunately - need to phone and ask for brochure. we stayed in big apt last year in very quiet little village in Zakynthos - yards from the beach - safe and good for sandcastles, near to local pool - very safe for kids with snack bar etc. Apt on ground floor in own grounds, one big bedroom for us and very large sitting/dining/bedroom for kids. Have also been with kids to Kos, Kalymnos with same company and always have fab time.

Go to Mousses in Lefkas - check out Simply Travel website for more information. Not a villa on its own, but a complex of 10 little houses. Just got back and already planning return. If you like the look of it on the website and want more information just post again. Janinlondon has been too, so we can fill you in with more details.
