Located on the northwest coast of Mallorca and lying in the heart of the Tramuntana Mountains is the alluring coastal village of Deia. Orange and olive groves, lush pastures and large farms smother the hillside, whilst traditional stone Mallorcan homes and villas in Deia are perched on the cliffs, providing sweeping views over the Mediterranean.
Renowned for the bohemian lifestyle that residents live by, the town is home to trendy cafes, stunning art galleries and unique gift shops boasting locally handmade wares. Celebrities are often spotted here, as are creatives who are seeking the quiet lifestyle and spiritual peace that can be found in the surrounding mountains.
Visitors to the small coastal town often find themselves hiking or cycling one of the picturesque tracks that can be found close by. With over 90 cycling routes and over 125 walking tracks, Deia is an explorer’s dream. Especially popular is the track to Sa Foradada, a rocky peninsula that juts out into the Mediterranean.
Of course, the coastal town would not be complete without a stunning beach. Although it’s a rocky cove and has shingle underfoot, Cala Deia is frequented by locals and visitors who venture there to experience its uniqueness. Unlike other beaches in Mallorca, Cala Deia does not have lounge chairs, umbrellas or water sports on offer. However, snorkelling, diving and simply enjoying the view from one of the beachside restaurants are all popular past times here.
Villas in Deia are traditionally built with stone and most have views of both the Mediterranean and surrounding mountain range. Our top picks for luxury holiday homes in Deia are Casa Tamara and Casa Noelia, both located just a short stroll to town and with majestic views of the countryside and ocean.
