The Space

Entire home with 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, kitchen & living room , private terrace and swimming pool.

In the heart of Genova, just 10 minutes away from the beach and Palma city resides our house, which is composed of two individual, rural and sweet homes.

We will live besides your home, on the one next door. Though, privacy and intimacy are strictly and fully respected. Besides this, due to our work, we are hardly ever at home...

Your home is composed of,
- Bedroom with double bed 160x200cm, including bed-sheets and blankets. With International Satellite and Spanish TV
- Bathroom with shower; including towels, shampoo, body gel, hair conditioner and hair dryer + 2 bathrobes.
- Private terrace, swimming pool towels included.
- Kitchen equipped with all basic cooking utensils + fridge, tea boiler, coffee machine, microwave, toaster and basic cooking ingredients such as sugar, salt, oil, tea, coffee etc...
- Living room
- Internet WIFI
- Radio/CD Player
- Air Conditioning + Central Heaters for winter time.
- Swimming pool
- Washing laundry machine + iron
- Reverse Osmosis drinking system which provides us with potable drinking water of excellent quality.

Parking along the same home's street is free from payment. In case the street is full, you may have to park about 100 meters away from the house. Though, Genova is a safe, quiet town and so is this street.

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.

Please note;
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)

Other facts:
- 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.
*Namaste*

En el corazón de Genova, a tan solo 10 minutos (en coche) de la playa y del centro de Palma, reside nuestro hogar, que esta compuesto por 2 casas individuales y separadas, la una de la otra, por una terraza y piscina.
Nosotras, Chiara y Carol, vivimos en la casita de al lado. Consideramos la intimidad y la privacidad como algo de suma importancia, y debido a nuestro trabajo, apenas solemos pasar por casa.

Vuestro hogar se compone por dos plantas,
- Un dormitorio con cama de matrimonio 160x200cm. Incluye sabanas y mantas.
- Televisión con TDT y Satelite con canales internacionales.
- Un cuarto de baño con ducha. Incluye geles de baño, toallas y secador de pelo.
- Una terraza privada. Incluye mesa comedor, tumbonas, sombrilla y toallas de piscina.
- Cocina equipada. Incluye cafetera, hervidor de agua, exprimidor, batidora, tostadora, microondas, utensilios de cocina e ingredientes básicos.
- Salón, comedor.
- Internet Wifi
- Radio/CD
- Aire Acondicionado (frio y calor) y calefacción central.
- Plancha y tabla de planchar
- Lavadora y Secadora
- Agua potable con sistema de Osmosis Inversa apto para consumo.
- Piscina

Parking disponible y gratis en la misma calle donde reside la casa. En caso de que la calle este llena, podrá aparcar al final de la calle a unos 100 metros de la casa. Genova es un pueblo tranquilo y seguro, asé como también es la calle donde vivimos.

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.

Otros datos:
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.
Carril Bici

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.

Guest Access

Entire home with swimming pool.

We use the swimming pool with discretion... usually guests are not at home.

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...

The Neighborhood

Genova is a small town on the hills of Palma (Sierra de Tramuntana) famous for its typical Mallorcan restaurants..
*Genova lies between the hills and the sea*
100 meters from home there is 1 supermarket open every day from 9am to 9pm.
There is also 1 bakery, a pharmacy, banks, tobacco shop and the Bellver Park.

Getting around

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.

Other Things to Note

We live with cats and one dog.
They are not allowed to go into your home and please do not feed them.

  • This place is truly special - we really had a wonderful stay at Ciara and Carol's place. Hosts were fantastic, and the place really lives up to the billing. Neighbourhood very picturesque and quiet, enough shops and restaurants locally to make things convenient. Town is a short bus ride away with regular service closely. Ocean front is not far etc.
    The best thing of all however is the private beauty of this place, with a memorable view from the upper terrace. We loved it, highly recommended.

  • Chiara was an amazing host! She helped us with everything out, answered all our questions and also gave us tips where to go and what to do. The house looks even better than in the pics. We enjoyed every single day in our small finca and strongly recommend her and Carols place ! the house is also well located ( 10min by bus to the center) which is even faster than by car and also cheaper : ) we will definately would love to come back on our next vacation!!! we miss Penelope, Menud and Penelopes twin (just smaller) hugs Joerg, Noar and Zana

    Response from Chiara:

    Having Zana hosted here, was not only beautiful Zana, but her 'hermoso' son and his sensed of humored gentleman husband Joerg. They are a truly beautiful family who took absolute care of the entire home and plants as if it where their own home. I have only positive and kind words to describe them both.

  • We had a great time in Mallorca and one of the reasons was that the apartment had everything we could ask for and because of Chiara being very generous and helpful. The apartment is in a perfect spot and as clean and nice as it looks. Regards Sonja&Julian

  • We really enjoyed our stay at Chiara's house. Everything was just perfect: A really lovely enteriour with so many beautiful details and decoration elements. Everything is very clean. You just feel like home. Also the garden is amazing. Chiara is the the perfect mixture between very friendly, helpful and distanced. If you don't love the place or Chiara, it's 100% your fault! :-)

  • Chiara was a wonderful host and we had an amazing week at her place! The town Genova is perfectly situated to explore the island. We will definitely come back!

  • WOW what a retreat Chiara’s Guesthouse is, 2 weeks of pure heaven, plenty of rest and recreation, sorry to leave after celebrating my 25th Wedding Anniversary there. Quite an amazing experience, the location is fantastic, easy access to Palma. Views around the area are breath taking. Chiara’s Guesthouse had everything we needed, extremely comfortable bed, we brought our own road bikes to explore the local cycle routes, Chiara even let us keep our cycles in her private meditation/studio which we felt was such a great gesture.
    This is such great place, the pool is amazing set in very peaceful surroundings, Chiara was a great host and there feels a great sense of calm and serenity to the house and gardens, Chiara respected our privacy but was on hand if we needed anything, we felt at home straight away and can’t wait to go back.

  • PARADISE!!!!!!
    My boyfriend, Matthias, and I stayed at Chiaras Dreamhouse for one week and we just loved it! It is an amazing place to relax and to just have a break from everything!
    We felt immediately at home....everything is just perfect....like a dream and all of this is because of Chiara!She is a wonderful person and you feel the special energy! I could not ask for a better host...when I met her first I just felt like meeting a friend! She helped me so much....we were celebrating Matthias Birthday and I had to organize little surprises...without Chiaras amazing help I could not manage it....I could write much more about this special place but you know what: just see and feel it! I highly highly recommend staying at CHIARAS beautiful GuestHouse!
    It was the best holidays I ever had! I'm still smiling when I think about it!

    September 2013
  • We had a wonderful stay at Chiara's GuestHouse! It's the ideal place to relax and a great startingpoint to explore the island. The house is very clean and you find everything you need.

  • We had a great stay in chiara's house in mallorca. It was unforgettable! We can really recommend this house. And chiara is a wonderful person and helps you when you have questions but respects your privacy. She is very uncomplicated, helpful and friendly.
    The house is how the pictures look like. Just amazing. It is fantastic to have breakfast on the own terrace with a great view and then jump in the beautiful swim pool. Genova is a small and quiet very nice village in the north of palma. We hope we can go again.

  • We have just had the most wonderful stay at Chiara's beautiful guesthouse. The pictures really do not do it justice. It has a wonderfully relaxing feel and you immediately feel at home. It is thoughtfully furnished and the bed is the most comfortable we have slept in. Chiara had provided toiletries, tea, coffee, sugar, milk, soft drinks and beers as well as muffins with candles as it was my birthday. The guesthouse is located just outside Palma (about 5 mins by car) and about 15-20 mins from the airport. There are plenty of restaurants in Genova, we ate at a couple and also took a taxi to Palma one evening which cost about 10 euros. Chiara was the perfect host not at all intrusive but available for any advise should you need it. You really would not be disappointed if you stayed here.
