Local Information

The north west coast of Mallorca is so very different to the rest of the island. Although the area is not without its tourists it is a more relaxed scene.

Situated in a World Heritage site, Valldemossa is a stunning little town in the hills of the Tramuntana range. Rich in cultural history, it is very unspoilt. It has a Carthusian monastery and has long been attractive to writers, artists and musicians. It was home to Chopin for much of his latter life (there is a statue of him in the square). The town has charming, windy streets, green shuttered windows and doors with some lovely shops and markets. There are some good restaurants and bars in the town.

If you want five star restaurants nip up the road to Deia which has several excellent restaurants including the renowned Olivo which is within the La Residencia Hotel. Arriving into Deia by road from the south you round the headland at Sa Pedrissa and you are met with your first stunning sight of the village that you will probably remember forever.
The locals who built the village (long before the days of town planning) got it so right. They were limited to the local materials they could find so all the houses are built in the same coloured stone as the mountain range which serves as the dramatic back drop.

The beaches in Mallorca are white sand, the east coast is heaving with beautiful coves and sumptuous white villages dotted in amongst the green groves.

There is lots of local cycling, walking and horse riding. Walk from the house to Deia in 5 hours and eat lunch in a Michelin-standard restaurant. There are also local courts for tennis players and lots of sailing and water skiing.

The capital of Mallorca is Palma (a 15 minute drive away) which is a wonderful place to visit during your stay, it has great shopping, lively bars and good restaurants as well as a Gothic cathedral. The maze of narrow streets in the Arab quarter are wonderfully atmospheric at night and the royal palace is not to be missed. It is also home to numerous Michelin starred restaurants.

The rural villages of the north west are ancient and beautiful, the local houses are all made out of the same coloured stone as the mountains so they literally disappear like a multitude of chameleons dotting the area. Deia is a beautiful place, ancient and cultural and contemporary all at once. It boasts the best restaurants on the island, indeed other tourists visit from all over the island ensuring it is always on their list of places to visit.

Our View

Once the home of a highly regarding Mallorquin architect, this house has the feeling of a much-loved home rather than a holiday villa. It is fabulously comfortable all year round (with under floor heating and an open fire for winter visitors). Up a long drive off the main road above the delightful little town of Valldemossa is this lovely villa.

There are amazing views from the house of the surrounding mountains and of the beautiful nearby town of Valldemossa. The garden is full of fruit trees from the everyday oranges and lemons to pomegranate, persimmon and mulberries. There are also olive trees and nut trees. Wonderful!

This house would be perfect for families with small children – there is a playroom (which can also sleep children) with bedrooms off it so little people can get up and entertain themselves without disturbing their parents. The double beds all have wonderfully soft linen and the bathrooms are oozing fluffy towels. Bedrooms are large and airy.

The large swimming pool is surrounded by rolling lawns with beautiful decking at one end with sofas and sun beds. The staff can cook for you – what better way to really relax than let someone else do the shopping and cooking (and washing up!)?

The nearby town of Valldemossa has lots to offer if ever you feel you can drag yourselves away from this house, it can be reached by car in 5 minutes or by foot, via a beautiful mountain walk in 30 minutes.
