Former shepherd's cottage, lovingly upgraded into a cozy, rustic home. Comfortably sleeps three. Enjoy a lovely private pool with mountain and sea views. A perfect getaway in charming Galilea village, just a short drive to Palma and beaches.
Welcome to Casa Elena!
The cottage consists of a fully-equipped modern kitchen with breakfast table, one larger bedroom with a double bed, one small bedroom with a single bed, one full bathroom, a spacious sitting area (with writing desk and fireplace), and a separate dining area. Large glass doors lead to the stone terrace and pool, where you can enjoy fantastic and unobstructed views of the valley leading down to the sea.
Casa Elena is perfect for couples and small families looking to experience the peaceful mountain village life that Galilea offers while enjoying the charm of a free standing stone cottage, surrounded by almond, olive and fig trees, and your very own private pool.
If it's there, feel free to use it.
Interaction with guests
We live in Asia, but the Property Manager, Ulla, lives a few houses down the road in Galilea, and speaks fluent English, Spanish and German. She will be your first point of contact if you have any questions or concerns, but otherwise will leave you to enjoy your holiday.
Other things to note
We don't have an internet connection - on purpose. We like to unplug while there, and rely on the free wifi at the cafes and restaurants in Galilea to check email or the news as needed.
You can access the roof terrace from the side of the house, but young children should not be permitted to climb to the top. We find the pool terrace to be more comfortable and spend all of our time there.
The sofa does fold out into a bed, but since there is only one bathroom, we feel that a maximum of three people is optimal.
You may notice some cracks in the stone and plaster inside the house. These are cosmetic in nature and fairly common in older hill side homes in Galilea.
Laundry service can be arranged for an additional fee.
Keep loud noises to a minimum in the evening out of respect to our neighbors.
No smoking in the house. Fine to smoke outside, but please be careful in dry, windy conditions when fire risk is high.
