The locals who built the village (long before the days of town planning) just 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.
Heading down the dusty track through the olive groves you find yourselves in the ‘cala’ of Deia, a glorious cove where the few remaining local fishermen still go out at dawn to cast their nets. 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.
Eating out is quite an amazing experience as the local town of Deia has several five star restaurants including the renowed Olivo which is within the La Residencia Hotel.
Home to many writers and artists over the years, Deia is still a hunting ground for collectors with wonderful exhibitions lasting year round.
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.
The area around Soller is famous for its orange and lemon groves, in the spring the trees are loaded with heavy fruit, ripening through the warm long days. The olive oil in Mallorca is delicious, the island is teeming with the fruit and the oil is lovingly prepared and bottled at source.
The capital of Mallorca is Palma which is a wonderful place to visit during your stay, it has great shopping, livley 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.
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.
We had a real hunch that our clients would love Deia and all the lovely village houses so near to the sea and such chic restaurants and following our visit to this house we confirmed our vision!
Just a short wander up the hill from the main street in Deia is this delightful villa house. It is a super comfortable and really elegant house owned by an award winning architect and it really shows.
There is everything you could possibly want in the kitchen and the most fabulous fireplace seating area that has been very cleverly designed.
The views are fabulous from every window as the house sits proud above the roofs of the village and you across the top of the La Residencia Hotel which is just a little further down the land. The garden is very established and private filled with bougainvillea, palms, dripping fruit trees and endless flowers. With some lovely places to sit in the shade you will laze away the days before heading down to Deia beach for a late Paella lunch or out to do some fine dining in the evenings in all the various venues around this glorious little village.
A must for anyone who loves the very special village of Deia and all it has to offer.
