Description

The space

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

In the heart of Genova, just 5 minutes away from the beach and Palma city resides my home, El Lerele, which is composed of two individual, rural and sweet houses.

I live in one of them, which does not appear in photos and is totally independent from your little guest house.
Besides this, privacy and intimacy are strictly and fully respected. Also, due to my work I am 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 + DVD
- 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 salt, sugar, tea, coffee, cold drinks etc...
- Living room
- Internet WIFI
- Radio/CD Player
- Air Conditioning + Central Heaters for winter time.
- Swimming pool
- Washing laundry machine + iron (laundry products)
- Reverse Osmosis drinking system which provides us with potable drinking water of excellent quality.
- Mallorca guide, children books, Parasols

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.

You will be welcomed 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;
I live with four 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 daily and sweep and scrub the once per week. (Usually do it when guests are not at home.)
Jorge cleans the swimming pool every 10 days.

Other facts:
- In the town you will find plenty of restaurants, fresh town super market, bakery, a pharmacy, tobacco store, cafes, natural park, sight seeing and caves.
- Bus Stop is right around the corner. It is 5 minutes away from Cala Mayor Beach and 5 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 10 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.

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.
Yo vivo en la casita de al lado. Considero la intimidad y la privacidad como algo de suma importancia, y debido a mi trabajo, apenas suelo 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.

- 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.

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:
Vivo 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.
Lolo se encarga del mantenimiento del jardín (15 días) y de la piscina en verano semanalmente y en invierno cada 15 días.

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

Guest access

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 home.
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... Whether we start a conversation or not, 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

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

I also ask you to scare them away if they come to lay around your private terrace.

This little retreat in Génova was so lovely both inside and out and Chiara was a delightful host! She greeted us and helped us in with our bags, left us with a very nice fruit plate and plenty of beverages in the refrigerator upon our arrival. She provided many great recommendations for restaurants, beaches, transportation and other towns to visit in Mallorca via our rental car. She allowed us much privacy but was always available to help if we had questions. Her dog and kitties were also very sweet and incredibly well behaved. We spent a week here after a long visit to Barcelona so the peace and quiet of this little oasis was very welcome after life in the busy (and wonderful) city. Even in late September it was warm enough to enjoy the pool a few times. Genova is small and very quiet but, as other reviewers have noted, has everything you need and is a great base if you plan on exploring other parts of the island. We went often to the small grocery store, cafe and several nearby restaurants all on foot. The #46 bus into Palma is so convenient also. We walked to the beach one day as well. Sa Ximbomba at the end of the street was very tasty and the staff was so friendly and fun. We visited them repeatedly and met many friendly travelers there as well. I could go on and on about our stay at Chiara's amazing home but just go see for yourself. You will not regret it! If ever I have a home to rent on AirBnB, I only hope I can instill with the same charm and goodness of Chiara's place! Thank you so much!

We spent an amazing 5 days at Chiara's beautiful home, she was a perfect host, we had a late flight booked and didn't land in Palma until after midnight & she offered to buy us in food as the shops and resturants would be shut when we arrived, gave us information on taxi's from the airport and waited up for us to show us around when we arrived. We were able to contact her via when we had and questions and she always prompt to reply & happy to make restaurant reservations, give recommendations and order taxi's. Her home is even more beautiful than the photographs, it was the most relaxing place I have ever had the pleasure of staying. It is impeccably clean and with everything you could possibly need from towels & kitchen equipment to a cool box & games. We ate in Genova two nights of our stay, at Ximbomba pizza restaurant and El Mussol, both two minutes walk from the apartment & beautiful. The bus into Palma stops a few minutes walk away & is super cheap €1.50 & very efficient. We walked to the nearby beach of Cala Major in about 20 minutes, but the bus goes that direction to if you didn't want to walk. We truly loved our stay and wouldn't hesitate in returning, we didn't want to leave!

We absolutely loved Chiara's place, a very lovely decoration, very clean and very quiet. The deck was our hotspot, we had all our breakfast their and a few diner. The pool gave us some cool during the hot August days, but we mostly went to the beach. Having a car is the big plus, we always find a parking on the street. A bakery and a small supermarket are 5 minutes walk-away. Genova has a few restaurants, 2 are very popular and can be find on tripadvisor. The pizzeria at the corner is ok but nothing special. But if you prefer to cook, the kitchen is well appointed. Chiara make us very comfortable, give us a very warm welcome, and all the privacy we wanted. If Mallorca again, it will be her lovely house!

Wonderful stay in paradise. The guesthouse is exactly as described here and everything was perfect. It was a pleasant stay to calm down, relax and enjoy the neighbourhood of Genova. Though close to Palma, it is a quite and peaceful place. Within 10 Minutes, one can be in the center of palma (by car). Good shopping in Genova (supermarket, bakery), and just a couple of minutes to Porto Pi Mall (by car), Chiara was a perfect host, warm welcome with fruits and coffe and she was very, very, considerate to gave a maximum of privacy. Even if her place is on the same ground it was as if she was invisible :) Definitly recommended to anyone who wants to stay a couple of days in paradise...

My wife and I stayed at Chiara's for our honeymoon and we have to admit that it felt like a little part of paradise was kept hidden just for us. Everything about the villa is incredible, down to the tiniest details; like a fresh plate of fruit welcoming our arrival, juice, water, and beer already in the fridge, games, kids books, as well as beach blankets and parasols found neatly stored in the cupboard under the stairs. The pool is where we spend most of our time as it provided cool relief from the scorching summer Mallorca sun. It's adequate size and lush green surroundings gave us exactly what we needed after all of the thought and preparation of planning a wedding - relaxation. The garden shone with vibrant colors and the calming fragrance of lavender perfumed the air. Guests could unwind with a good book under the shade of the traditional Mediterranean style canopies, or lap up the sun lounging on the private rooftop terrace. Chiara is always on call via the Airbnb app, offering advice on local restaurants and responding promptly to any queries or concerns. An abuela is also hired a few days a week to discretely tidy up the outdoor areas and water the plants. The villa itself is conveniently located around 15 minuted from Palma and we were able to navigate our way into the heart of the city with relevant ease, parking in the spacious car park under the famous castle and cathedral. If you're looking to enjoy a serene getaway at a peaceful hillside retreat we really can't recommend Chiara's villa enough. We will definitely be coming back again!

Chiara's welcome was friendly and helpful, the house was lovely in a perfect setting with a good sized pool. The house was tastefully decorated and it provided the perfect calm and comfortable retreat from Palma which is only a short and efficient bus ride away. Genova has some fantastic restaurants and Chiara's is really happy to help with suggestions and arrangements. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere in the well kept garden with occasional visits from the dog and cats, it really felt like home from home. The only negatives we had was that the parking was tricky in the street and the bedroom could do with an air conditioning unit as it was very hot at night despite the fan. We had a great time here and would highly recommend it.

A paradise close to Palma. The moment we entered Chiaras Place, we felt like bing in a quite relaxing oasis. Everything was perfectly prepared for our stay and Chiara has been a fantastic host. The only negative remark: we had to leave!!! Thanks for everything.
