Prepare to be seduced. This truly picturesque village nestles in a cleft of the Tramuntana mountains on the rugged South West coast of Mallorca. Stunningly situated beneath craggy mountains, the stone houses tumble down the hillside to the main street which meanders through the village.

High on a rocky outcrop stands the ancient village church around which run narrow lanes, cobbled passageways and breathtaking views around each corner. Meander up the narrow streets passing tiny cottages and craft shops before arriving at the church from where you can see all the way to the sea. The upward hike is worth it.
Step inside the church to glimpse a piece of yesteryear; small, intimate yet quite ornate. Outside the church entrance stands the gate to the cemetery where you’ll find the resting place of Robert Graves, author and poet, who lived in Majorca for many years. His home, situated on the road in to Deia, is now open to the public.

Nightlife:

Back on the high street you’ll find a small number of good quality, if expensive, restaurants and a couple of trendy bars. Deia is well known for attracting the glitterati each summer as the likes of Sir Bob Geldof and Andrew Lloyd-Webber own houses here and are often spotted around the village.

La Residencia, the large hotel on the Soller side of the village, is owned and run by Sir Richard Branson’s ex-wife and its restaurant has a good reputation. Even if you can't afford to stay there, lunch on the terrace is definitely recommended!

Beach:

Although reachable by car (follow signs on the Soller side of the village) there’s a beautiful walk you can take that runs alongside a babbling stream and leads you through orchards and donkey fields eventually coming out at the small beach. It's clearly marked and fairly easily traversed though there are sty’s. You can take a circular route if you return to the village by turning left instead of right and taking the track that leads to the main road.

The narrow beach is shingle and at high tide grows even smaller! Waves bash up on stormy days making it impossible to walk on but the two restaurants you’ll find there are great places to sit and watch the spectacle.
When the sun shines the waters are beautifully clear and perfect for bathing whilst the rock pools are perfect for the kids to explore.

Who goes there:

Holidaymakers looking for sophistication and exclusivity...although surprisingly enough it’s also popular with hippies in the summer months. Very popular with walkers in the cooler months as there is easy accessibility from the village to many popular hiking routes.

What to do:

  • Visit the resting place and home of Robert graves, author and poet.
  • Hiking and cycling are both popular ‘off season’ pursuits.
  • Day trips from here can take you easily into Palma and along the dramatic coastline to villages such as Valldemossa who played host to Chopin and George Sands (see below).
  • Visit the 14th century Carthusian Monastery which hosted the visit of Chopin and George Sands. The rooms in which they stayed are preserved along with artefacts such as the original manuscript for ‘A Winter in Majorca’, written by Sands, and the piano Chopin used to compose music. Also of interest are the palace rooms, the church and the original pharmacy.
  • Don't miss the Saturday market at Soller - great for local products. 
  • Enjoy a visit to Costa Nord Centre recently opened by Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta Jones. Primarily a cultural centre it shows of a side of Majorca many people don’t know. Throughout the year recitals are held so do check with the tourist office to find out what may be on the programme of events during your visit.
  • Visit the Son Maroig magnificent home of the Arch Duke Louis Salvador and enjoy the walk through the beautiful gardens to the dramatic cliff edge. Often there’s a weekly market held here too, along with classical concerts; check with the tourist office to find out when.

Fiesta:

June 24th is Deia Saints day. This is when their Saint, Sant Joan, is celebrated with a host of religious, sporting and fun events staged all week long.

Psst! Sunsets were celebrated here long before the trendy island of Ibiza got in on the act! For proof check out the amazing ‘sunset’ viewing platform erected at the Son Maroig estate.
