the managing team behind the private business network

The destination marketing agency ‘The Place To Sea’ was founded by Valeska Selini Kuntermann de Baer in Greece and is headquartered in Athens.


Born in Hamburg, she spent the first years of her childhood on Corfu between the scent of wild rosemary and proud cypresses, emerald-green olive groves and the crystal blue sea.


‘The Place To Sea’ has emerged out of her desire to preserve the island as the paradise she knew as a child and to promote modern Hellenic lifestyle and Corfu´s Dolce Vita – and that’s exactly what she is doing today, together with reliable partners and a lovely team. as a curator of the private business network,

‘Corfu Finest Selection’.


The management team behind the private business network consists so far of British, Hungarian, German, Greek and Swiss marketers and creatives. Different nationalities and personal backgrounds but united in the love for Corfu, we aim to elevate this place to a next level.


Together with local companies and international cooperations, we promote Corfu as an all-year, high-end holiday destination and at the same time invite residents and guests to join us in protecting the resources of the island.




The members of ‘Corfu Finest Selection’ benefit from the management of the private business network and the resulting industry or local cooperation groups, in which everyone increases their profitability.


By setting the benchmark for sustainable tourism, we focus our guest’s attention on the businesses inside the network and giving our members high reputation among national and international travellers who attach great importance to the quality of life and sustainability.


Instead of working separately, we implement projects, observe trends and develop targeted experience and event concepts together – and that means everyone wins; locals, guests and the magical nature of Corfu.
