General Description

In the heart of idyllic Deia, by a little stream, are two pretty cottages that have been lovingly converted into beautiful holiday homes for couples, families or friends wanting to enjoy village life. Deia's boutiques, art galleries, tapas bars and upmarket restaurants just a short stroll away and a little further down the hill is the pretty Cala Deia cove where you can cool off in the Mediterranean water.

This three bedroom holiday home would be ideal for family or friends. Downstairs there is the feel of open-plan living with a spacious sitting room furnished with both comfort and tradition, wooden beamed ceilings and bright white-washed walls. The hallway and dining area leads through to a very well equipped kitchen with the original fire-place and doors opening up to the terrace. There is also a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom on the ground floor, accessed straight from the living area.

Upstairs there are two further bedrooms, one double and one twin, both decorated and furnished with simplicity and comfort and they each have their own ensuite shower room to use. With views from the rooms of the mountains or rustic patio and gardens, it really is a very special village location.

Outdoors there is a delightful terrace area and barbecue for al-fresco dining, surrounded by terracotta pots of Mediterranean colour, bougainvillea and passion flower pergolas. In the terraced gardens you will find Persimmon, Avocado and Orange trees, all very typical of the island.

With a stunning backdrop of the 'Sierra de Tramuntana', the beautiful village of Deia is typically Mediterranean with green shuttered stone houses and narrow streets of pretty boutiques and cafes. It has been welcoming artists, musicians and writers for years and has a bohemian vibe.

Cala Deia, a beautiful sheltered pebble cove, is 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.

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.

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.
