The enchanting village of Deia is situated on the north west coast of Mallorca set against the backdrop of the Teix mountain, part of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. The charming village itself is like walking into a fairytale with it’s green shuttered, ochre houses and balconies looking down to the streets below.
Deia has always attracted the creative and arty types and was once home to the great British poet and writer Robert Graves. His former home is now a little museum which can be visited and remains unchanged and full of nostalgia. These days there are many art galleries and exhibitions to visit and for perhaps a poet or a painter, a place in which they can simply come to take inspiration from the stunning surroundings.
There are plenty of delightful little places to eat and drink which serve an excellent variety of traditional Mallorcan cuisine. And if you head down to Cala Deia beach there are some lovely rustic restaurants where you can enjoy fresh fish and some remarkable local wines whilst overlooking the turquoise waters of the pretty little pebble cove, ideal for snorkelling. You may even glimpse a celebrity or two whilst at the beach as Deia is a popular hideaway for the visiting wealthy and famous.
