General Description

Just a short walk from an enchanting beach and one of the island's best fish restaurants, this villa is a wonderful high-end holiday home with swimming pool for family or friends wishing to discover this beautiful corner on the island of Mallorca.

The villa has been restored to a very high standard with exposed wooden beams, traditional high-end furnishings, beautifully tiled floors and light and airy white washed walls with contemporary artwork throughout. The immaculately presented living room benefits from modern touches such as a plasma TV and Bode surround system whilst enchanting French windows leading to the bougainvillea draped porch and the wonderful swimming pool beyond. You can wander through to the spacious dining area, with more spectacular views and comfortable spots to relax inside.

Two of the four bedrooms have traditional Malloquin four poster beds and all of them immaculately tiled ensuite bath or shower rooms. Sunlight floods through the generously proportioned windows and you can catch glimpses of the sea or mountain scenery throughout. With an atmosphere of simple luxury and refined taste, the interiors of this villa are incredibly beautiful.

The swimming pool also enjoys views down to the sea and there are plenty of spots for outdoor relaxation whether it is lounging under the loggia by the pool, swinging in the hammock or sun-bathing in the bright and warm sunshine of the pool terrace. There are various opportunities for al-fresco dining and a brilliant BBQ for long summery evenings with family or friends under the stars. The villa has some wild gardens leading down to the nearby river and is otherwise surrounded by lush countryside and olive groves beyond.

Just 200 metres away is a beautiful and popular sheltered pebble cove, Cala Deia, where you will also find a superb rustic seafood restaurant overlooking the sea, known to be one of the best on the island.

Deia, about twenty-five minutes walk up a steep hill, is an idyllic village on the west coast of Mallorca, perched high up with stunning views down to the crystal clear seas. With a stunning backdrop of the 'Sierra de Tramuntana', the beautiful village is typically Mediterranean with green shuttered stone houses and narrow streets of pretty boutiques, art galleries, upmarket restaurants, cafes and Mallorquin tapas bars. It is very popular with tourists in the summer, with good reason as visitors come to experience the arty and bohemian vibe, just like the late Robert Graves did when he lived in the village in the nineteeth century.

The pretty town of Soller is a dramatic 10km drive away, a beautiful town so popular with walkers or tourists looking to get off the beaten track. Take the old wood panelled train through the orange groves from Soller to Palma for a day trip to the magnificent city.

Local Area / Activities

Deia is a small idyllic village on the west coast of Mallorca, perched high up with stunning views down to the crystal clear seas. With a stunning backdrop of the 'Sierra de Tramuntana', the beautiful village is typically Mediterranean with green shuttered stone houses and narrow streets of pretty boutiques, art galleries, upmarket restaurants, cafes and Mallorquin tapas bars.

It has been welcoming artists, musicians and writers for years and has a bohemian vibe. Visitors flock to the village not only for the outstanding beauty and character but also to visit the grave and former house, now a museum, of Robert Graves who lived here in the nineteenth century when the artistic scene flourished and continues today.

The Moors, who named the area 'Ad-Daya' meaning 'village', created the terraced irrigation system that slows steep hillsides to be cultivated and today the olive groves still cover much of the hillside in and around the town.
Cala Deia is a beautiful sheltered pebble cove, a thirty minute steep walk downhill from the village (or a five minutes drive) where you will find a superb rustic seafood restaurant overlooking the sea. Fishermen still set out their boats at night so you can enjoy their haul.

The island of Mallorca is a walker's paradise as there is a network of paths and ancient mule tracks across the Serra de Tramuntana, so close to Deia. The area is also popular with mountain bikers who can enjoy the dramatic and stunning mountain and sea-view scenery. Tennis courts can be hired in the village and there are various golf clubs on the island, the closest being Son Termens about 18km away.

If you hire a car you can discover the beautiful island of Mallorca, especially the north-west corner which is a world away from some of the more touristy resorts on the island. The pretty town of Soller is a dramatic 10km drive away, here you can enjoy the ambience with a glass of wine on the town square with the Sant Bartomeu church or find one of the many walking paths, such as those to the picturesque villages of Biniaraix and Fornalutx.

The beautiful city of Palma is yours to discover and what better way to travel there than via the 1912 wood panelled train that takes you through the orange and lemon groves for the 28km journey from Soller to Palma.
