About Caroline van den Bosch

I am of Dutch origin and have build a beautiful Villa some years ago on a fantastic location on the sea on the North side of Corfu. The only place with wonderful sunsets. I rent out the Villa when I can't be there to have other people enjoy this paradise.

Caroline van den Bosch purchased this villa in 2002

Why Caroline van den Bosch chose Esperies

Corfu is a real treasure, it is large enough to have many things to see and do, it has beautiful scenery and nature. I always wanted to have a house here and developed the Villa some years ago. I was lucky to find this beautiful spot. It takes your breath away. The people are really nice, most speak well English. The cosmopolitan Corfu Town has many things to explore, next to the beaches and islands surrounding us. Like the beautiful Paxos and Antipaxos which can be easily accessed by boat from Corfu Town.

What makes this villa unique

The property has many features, both for smaller and larger groups. The location is the best you can find and it is a unique feature to be straight on the beach and still be fully private. The grounds are large, full of flowers and trees.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"When we closed the gate for the first time behind us we were a little bit jealous. The Villa Blue Whale is really marvelous. Excellent equipment and a very good swimming pool. As well for the adults as well for the children. You have a beautiful view from the villa to the sea. In the surroundings you can make very many beautiful day trips. The island of Corfu must certainly be visited . When I go back to Corfu the Villa Blue Whale will be my home."

"This property is exceptionally well situated and equipped and ideal for a holiday for a large family grouping. The views are terrific with outstanding sunsets each evening dipping down over the infinity pool. We have stayed at a number of places in Greece and around the Mediterranean and I would rate the Blue Whale Villa amongst the best of these. I would most certainly wish to go back and would fervently recommend this Villa to anyone looking for a super family holiday near, but not too near, to great facilities."
