Car hire is not essential as you can walk into the village and down to the beach.
Deia is a spectacularly beautiful village which sits atop a hill in the Sierra de Tramuntana mountains. 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.
Home to many writers and artists over the years, Deia is still a hunting ground for collectors with wonderful exhibitions lasting year round.You will not want for something to do (day or night) in this seemingly sleepy village. Just spend a few hours here and you will see that it is a vibrant, working local village full of artists, writers and musicians. Year round, there are music festivals in Deia and endless art exhibitions in the village and at La Residencia.
The restaurants in the immediate area are among the best on the island and include; Sebastians, Jaimes, Dorada and the Internationally renowned, El Olivo which is the 5 star restaurant attached to the La Residencia Hotel.
Just below the house, follow the cobbled path through the olive groves down to the ‘cala’ of Deia, a glorious pebble cove where the few remaining local fishermen still go out at dawn to cast their nets. There is a pilates studio in the village and a lot of walking in and around the Deia area, with many walks start from the village itself. The La Residencia has a fabulous spa and two tennis courts with sea views that are possible to book.
Head north to Port de Soller where there are two beaches: Es Traves is the longest but Playa d’en Repic is nicer. Both beaches have gravelly sand, there are sun loungers and canoes on the beach to rent. It is possible to rent boats in the town, both skippered or not, available to charter half or full day.
Mallorca is very popular with cyclists and there is some seriously taxing cycling on the island due to all the hills. Whatever your standard it is possible to rent bikes for leisurely cycling, race training or mountain bikes. Beware when driving as there can be a cyclist at every turn!
We were surprised how big this house was inside when we visited. Located at the end of a quiet, no-through road, and at the top of the cobbled path down to Deia beach, this lovely house is tucked away and perfectly positioned just a few minutes walk from the main street as well as being a short (but energetic!) walk to the beach.
Recently renovated, this villa is thoughtfully and comfortably furnished and gives a feeling of space with high ceilings, wooden beams, white walls and traditional terracotta tiles in traditional Mallorcan style. There is a long and spacious sitting room with dining at one end, a well-equipped large kitchen-breakfast room and French doors that lead out from the kitchen and dining room onto a shaded terrace, a comfortable space for dining and relaxing.
The owner really wants their guests to feel at home here, so they have tried to provide every home comfort they think you’ll need.
It is great to be able to walk into the village for bread, tapas or a cocktail. The La Residencia hotel is just a few minutes walk – with one of the island’s best restaurants, and there are a host of other wonderful eateries in Deia, you will be spoilt for choice. Foodies travel here from all over the island.
