Genova is an old, typical mallorcan town which was once basically populated by fishermen. It is now popular for its simple life style. Unique, as it seems you are far from the city and protected by its sorrounding mountains called 'Sierra de Na Burguesa'. Up from above the mountain there are spectacular views to Palma Bay, and at the bottom are its famous historic caves open to public.
Once you arrive, we like to welcome you with a fresh, local fruit basket, a few cool drinks, coffee and tea…
It will be my pleasure to help you make your stay here and at the island as best and as comfortable as possible...
We speak Spanish, English, German and French.
We live with three cats and one dog (all of them very well manered) which are not allowed in your home but they do sometimes lay around the garden.
Me, Chiara, I water the garden plants and sweep the terraces daily. (takes 15 minutes)
*I have a small yoga/dance studio which I only use when nobody is at home in order to not disturb.
Carol, my partner, due to her work as acupuncturist doctor, is hardly ever at home.
Jorge is the swimming pool man who comes once a week for maintenance. (takes 20 minutes)
- In the town you will find plenty of restaurants, fresh town super market, bakery, a pharmacy, tobacco store, cafes, visa banks, natural park, sight seeing and caves.
- Bus Stop is right around the corner. It is 10 minutes away from Cala Mayor Beach and 15 minutes away from Palma city.
This line takes you straight to Palma's central bus and train station in Plaza España, from where you may take other transports to any other point of the island.
- Bicycle lane
- Natural park and woods only 5 minutes away by feet. It is called Bosque Bellver.
- Indian, Japanese and Italian food home delivery service.
- Check in / out, may be flexible depending on previous or upcoming guests.
Please visit its guide book, this will help you situate distances from points of interest and such as bars, restaurants, sight seeing, beaches, natural parks, markets, shopping malls and more....
Wherever yo go, may it be beautiful.

Genova es un tipico pueblo mallorquin que una vez fue mayoritariamente donde vivían los pescadores de Palma. Ellos fueron quienes construyeron la Virgen que esta en la sierra de Na Burguesa, de modo en que proteja al pueblo.
A dia de hoy, sigue siendo un pueblo conocido por su ambiente y estilo de vida tranquilo y alegre. Aunque cerca de la ciudad, uno aquí se siente lejos del barullo, protegido por las montañas con sus espléndidas vistas al mar.
Y debajo de dichas montañas se encuentran sus históricas cuevas que están abiertas al publico, así como también el Bosque Bellver...
A su llegada, será un placer recibirles con una cesta de fruta local y del tiempo, cafe, tes y zumos naturales...
Será un placer para mi ayudarles a que su estancia aquí, tanto en la casa como en la isla, que sea lo mas agradable posible.
Hablamos, Español, Malloquin, Inglés, Francés y Alemán.
A tener en cuenta:
Vivimos con tres gatos y un perro (todos muy bien educados) los cuales tienen prohibida la entrada a su casa. Eso no impide que de vez en cuando se echen alguna siesta alrededor de las terrazas.
Yo, Chiara, riego y barro las terrazas a diario, no tarda mas de unos 20 minutos. También dispongo de una pequeña sala de yoga/baile la cual solamente utilizo cuando no hay nadie en casa a quien pueda molestar.
Carol, mi compañera, debido a su trabajo como Medico de Acupuntura, casi nunca esta en casa.
Jorge, el piscinero, pasa una vez por semana a limpiar la piscina y no se demora mas de 20 minutos.
En el pueblo podrá encontrar varios restaurantes de comida típica mallorquina, un colmado con fruta ecológica, un pequeño supermercado, panadería, cafeterías, miradores, cuevas históricas, un estanco, farmacia y bancos.
La parada de autobus se encuentra a unos 100 metros de la casa. Le llevara tanto a la playa de Cala Mayor (10min) como al centro de Palma (15min) y a la estación central de autobuses y de tren.
El bosque Bellver, esta a tan solo 5 minutos a pie.
Por favor vean la guia 'Guide Book' para que puedan orientarse sobre las distancias que hay entre la casa y otros puntos de interés...
Vayan donde vayan, que sea bonito***
This depends always on my guests.
I do like to ask them, after the first night, if they had a good sleep and if all in the house is working properly, or if they are still in need of something. After this, if everything is alright, we might meet up casually in the garden or by the door gate... but this always depends on the guests' mood.
Entire home with private terrace and swimming pool.
I use the swimming pool with discretion.
Interaction with Guests
This depends always on my guests.
I do like to ask them after their first night, if they had a good sleep and if all is working properly in their house.
After this, if everything is alright and they are not in the need of anything else, we might meet up casually in the garden or by the door gate... That we start or not a conversation depends always on the guest's mood and intimacy...

To move to Palma City and Old Palma I highly recommend the Bus which its stop lies round the house's corner. Line 46. Bus stop #
For quality Beaches it is better to get there by car as they are 30 - 40 min away from home.

Spent an amazing week in Chiara's little corner of paradise: she made us feel very welcome on our arrival: a platter of fruits and some drinks in the fridge made us instantly feel home.
She was very available and shared tons of tips, being both helpful and discreet at the same time: we really felt like we were living in our own place.
The vibe is chilled and quiet, the roof terrace is perfect for breakfasts with a view for instance, the kitchen has everything you can dream of and the layout of the house is just perfect and well-thought.
Chiara also provides free filtered water which is a plus, as well as various touristic guides, books, board games etc.
The location is great, just 10 minutes away from Palma, the neighbourhood offers a large choice of restaurants, grocery shops and a great bar / pizzeria not far called "Sa Ximbomba".
We will definitely recommend and come back. We stayed at the beginning of April and got lucky with a warm and sunny weather during the day. The nights get chilly in this season but you'll find your home at the perfect temperature thanks to the heating / AC!
Muchas gracias chicas, we already miss our little nest :-)
Our stay at Chiara's Place starten with a warm welcome so that we felt at home from the very first minute. The whole place is so cosy, individual and exactly as described. We especially loved the roof terrace and the wonderful bed. We can recommend the place as we well for its short way to Palma, which is only 15 minutes by bus (1,50€). Amazing location!
Durch das Eisentor in den Innenraum der Stadtfinca zu treten, ist wie nach Hause kommen. Hier ist absolut Urlaub möglich. Das Appartment ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, alles in der Küche ist in guter Qualität vorhanden. Standmixer zum Smoothie herstellen, elektrische Orangenpresse, Toaster usw. Das Sofa und das Bett bieten Platz ( auch für größere Menschen) und sind sehr bequem. Die sonnige Dachterasse ist ein Traum und wenn das Wetter nicht die gewünschten Temperaturen hergibt, rettet die Heizung. Auch ist es absolut ruhig, trotz Autobahnnähe, von der aus alles auf der Insel gut zu erreichen ist. Chiara ist ein diskrete Gastgeberin, die sofort da ist, wenn etwas benötigt wird. Dank an Chiara und an Sandra. Wir kommen gerne wieder.
Trotz meiner Katzenallergie hatte ich keine Probleme mit den 6 Katzen.
Zauberhafte Unterkunft mit äußerst gastfreundlichen und liebenswerten Gastgeberinnen.
Ideale Lage in Palma-Nähe und dennoch ruhig und untouristisch.
Ausstattung ( Zentralheizung bei frostigen Temperaturen!) und Gestaltung wirklich beispielhaft.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder.
Chiara's home is an idyllic spot. You walk through the front gate to find yourself in a quiet, charming paradise. The villa was neat and tidy and there was a lovely platter of fresh fruit waiting in the centre of the table to greet us after a long trip. Chiara was very helpful in suggesting interesting restaurants and sights and beaches worth visiting. We followed many of her suggestions, but we were also just as happy to stay put and enjoy the pool and deck and the quiet surrounding of Chiara's beautiful home. Chiara is the perfect hostess-friendly and attentive, but not overwhelmingly so. We felt like we had a private villa all to ourselves the entire length of our stay.
We stayed at Chiara's guest house for a week in mid-September, and had a really enjoyable and relaxing time. Chiara greeted us as soon as we arrived at the house, and kindly showed us all the features and amenities of the accommodation, as well as tips and advice regarding restaurants in Genova, and the buses and transport links to Palma and Cala Major beach. There is a small supermarket and local bakery very near to the house, and we often bought our breakfast of "ensaimada de crema" and "napolitana de chocolate" from the bakery which were very tasty. The swimming pool is beautiful especially on a clear sunny day, and Chiara's pets are incredibly well-behaved, calm, and peaceful. They're also incredibly cute. The local buses from Genova to Palma, and Genova to Cala Major beach are clean and reliable, and we enjoyed spending time in both of those destinations. Palma is a beautiful city full of history, and the Cathedral and Arab Baths are 2 places to definitely visit and enter. There are plenty of tasty tapas bars and restaurants in Palma, dotted around different parts of the town. We would recommend "Tast" for tapas, "Wineing" for wine, "La Boveda" for absolutely delicious gambas a la plancha, and Ca'n Joan de S'Aigo for brilliant pastries and ice cream. There are also plenty of shops in Palma including a giant Corte Ingles. It's then nice to return to the peace and quiet of Genova, and enjoy the relaxing surroundings of the guest house with a glass of wine and some food cooked in the kitchen. We also dined at all 3 restaurants which Chiara recommended to us which were "Es Mussol", "Casa Jacinto", and "Na Burguesa." All 3 produced sumptuous food and nice dining (website hidden) Burguesa is located near the top of a mountain, so the views of Palma and its bay area are stunning on a clear day/night. Overall, muchas gracias Chiara - nos pasamos genial!
A truly beautiful guest space in the grounds of a cleverly designed and stunningly attractive house. Chiara was helpful, funny and made sure that everything we needed was ready and waiting. She was a great host, and the terrace and pool were the perfect settings for enjoying the sunshine. We could not have asked for more -- even the animals were friendly! Genova itself is compact, the public transport links to Palma are really reliable and regular, and there are some great restaurants within 2-3 min walk of the house.
