A Treasure of a House In a Magical Place

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don’t lie! Every room in this delightful house is focussed on the fabulous view beyond, and the experience as you step onto the roof terrace for the first time to see the pretty village set out before you stretching to the azure sea on the horizon, is unforgettable. Look behind you and you will see the spectacular mountains under which the house nestles which turn wonderful shades of pink and purple in the setting sun. Add the scents of jasmine and lilac which hung in the air when we stayed and the whole is an intoxicating mix which will draw you back time and again! This is no ordinary holiday house – from the moment you step inside, you feel that you are being welcomed into a lovely home with every thought given to making your stay as relaxing as possible. From the welcome pack in the very well appointed kitchen, to the comfortable bed, the excellent book selection and the alluring sun bed on the roof terrace, everything in this spotless house is designed for your maximum enjoyment. You do however need to be reasonably fit! The house has fairly steep steps between each floor and a spiral staircase to be negotiated onto the roof terrace. We loved it, but if you have mobility problems it may be a challenge. Similarly, the house is a delightful walk into the village centre, some 2 minutes down steps following the route of the mountain stream or around 5 minutes passing donkeys and orange and lemon trees. It is though a steepish climb as you return up the mountain – and the house itself is atop a number of steps. Whatever your reason for taking a break – walking or cycling in this area of outstanding natural beauty, or simply chilling, this house hits the spot. We really loved the fact that we could abandon the car for days at a time and sample the considerable delights of Deia’s restaurants and bars with a scent laden walk back to the house to exercise away the delicious Mallorcan wine and tapas treats! Deia is special and this house is a treasure. The two combine to create an atmosphere of peace and relaxation which is seductive. Unsurprisingly we have already booked for next year! Jackie is the perfect owner – she could not be more helpful and responds quickly to every communication. The directions to the property she prepared are the most detailed we have ever received which really reflects the care and attention she gives from the outset, to every aspect of her guests’ wellbeing during their stay. We can’t wait to return!

The property is situated on a hill above Deia and offers stunning views, especially from the terrace

  • 5 of 5

The 2-week stay at the beginning of September 2016 was excellent in every way. The owners were very easy to deal with, comunicated promptly and offered full and helpful information. The feeling was that, in the event of a problem (which didn't arise!), there would be someone ready to help. The property is very comfortable, clean, attractive, full of beautiful objects and interesting books. It gives the feeling of a home and not just a standard holiday acccommodation.

There are superb views over the town and the sea from every room, but the most spectacular are from the roof terrace, with the rocky Tramuntana mountains rising just behind the house.

Caveat: the access to the property is by steep stone steps and the house is on four floors, all accessed by stairs.

Deia itself is hilly and steep in places.

However,this is not a problem for those who enjoy exercise and the bonus is the enhanced fitness and no weight gain worries, even after 2 weeks of sampling delicious restaurants.

The holiday was relaxing, enjoyable and interesting, only spoilt by the presence of stinging jelly fish on some (not all) days, which made swimming in the stunning Cala Deia hazardous. This jelly fish are present throughout the Mediterranean and it's just a random event that can happen anywhere.

I would recommend this house and the location without any reservation.

CHARMING, WELL-APPOINTED, MOUNTAIN RETREAT

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rent from both VRBO and AirBandB internationally frequently and I can say this is the best rental we have ever had as it suited us perfectly. The property is tucked away in the mountain overlooking the city. It is by far the best view of the city and the sunset. Each morning after we made our breakfast we would walk the 2 minutes into town to enjoy cafe con leche looking back at the mountains and then would set off to we explore the town, the local beach, or nearby hiking trails. Occasionally we would drive into Valldemossa or Sa Fordada, (the hike into this beach cove and the adjacent restaurant at the bottom of the cliffs should not be missed. It is not a very challenging hike and the incline is manageable.). After returning to the town each afternoon we would often have a light lunch and take some wine, cheese and fresh figs back to the roof, enjoying the afternoon listening to music, reading books and overall enjoying the little slice of heaven that Jackie has created throughout this welcoming home. After sunset each evening we would walk back into the city to have dinner. The town has multiple Michelin Star restaurants and even the local lesser known restaurants are superb. To be able to not travel very far and remain in one location enjoying both an active lifestyle, fresh markets for good food and to enjoy amazing meals within a short walk were the hallmarks of our best vacation in years. The rooftop and third floor are so welcoming that we decided against some of the other planned exploring around the island to just enjoy it. The kitchen also has everything you could possibly need to cook a great meal.

One thing to note is that that you need to be slightly agile to rent here. Not an athlete or anything but the ability to make it up and down steep hills with a good pair of shoes. The walk into the city is steep but only perhaps 2 minutes. Just fine with moderate agility and a decent pair of shoes. (I often changed into a pair of wedges after the walk down the hill for dinner). For hiking, I recommend actually hiking shoes not tennis shoes if you make the trip to Soller. It is about 3 hours and quite steep.

My husband and I will be back and have sent this rental on to many friends already. Everything that we seek in a travel experience was embodied in this little villa and town. So much so that it is difficult to continue exploring the world knowing that beautiful Deia exists. Thanks to Jackie for making it wonderful.

The most perfect Easter Break .....

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time in Deia and I stayed over the Easter holidays. This house is a superb find - each of the 3 floors has an understated luxury that manages to feel elegant and comfortable at the same time. The views from the living room and bedroom make you feel part of the action of the town but are just removed enough from it all to keep everything relaxed. To save the best for last - the roof terrace and its king size daybed is my new happy place ! The eye-numbingly beautiful panorama of mountains, town and sea is mesmerising and I returned to London understanding why this special place has enraptured so many poets, musicians and travellers before me.

A Real Gem

  • 5 of 5

It’s hard to know where to begin with this review as we had such a lovely time in a beautiful house in a stunning location. The views are out of this world, if you love mountain scenery and sea vistas then this is the place for you. The house is charming, the decor is beautiful, clean and bright and has all the facilities and comforts you require. We lost hours on the roof terrace, relaxing, eating drinking and indulging in the panoramic views. To escape the heat we spent time in the lounge where it was lovely and cool. With a great collection of books, lovely design and perfectly placed comfy sofa looking at the sea, we enjoyed some respite from the heat. The kitchen has everything you need, washing machine, dishwasher, utensils and the all important cool box! The quiet calm of this property is sublime and yet in 5 minutes you are in the heart of Deia and it's village life with wonderful restaurants. The owners instructions were very clear and helpful and we highly recommend this property. We would love to come back to C’an Maroto as it is also a brilliant base for walking the Tramuntana Mountains.

Location

Special interest holidays:

The Sa Fonda bar, up the steps opposite the supermarket, is the hub of village life and should not be missed.

Art courses run by renowned artists are available in the village. There is a communal tennis court which can be booked at the Town Hall in advance. Tennis lessons are available from the tennis coach who lives in the village.

Coast/Beach:

25 minutes walk through olive groves and terraces, to Cala Deia cove with rustic pebble beach and 2 bar/restaurants. It has not been modernised, which lends to its rustic charm. The highly-reputed fish restaurant on the beach is considered to be one of the finest in the Balearic Islands (booking advisable). The walk back takes longer as its mostly up hill! If you prefer not to walk, there is a large car park at the bottom.

Travel:

Palma airport 40 mins drive or 50 (approx) euros taxi.

Distances:

Valldemossa - 9km.

Soller - 9km.

Palma - 40 - 45 minute drive.

Further Details:

Dining out is an absolute pleasure in Deia and the village is famous for its restaurants,with a huge variety of dining experiences available from the rustic to the sophisticated. Again, the restaurants are only a two minute walk down the hill. For example:

A super tapas bar, La Bodega de Xelini and the restaurant Es Racó des Teix (with a Michelin Star) are only 2 minutes walk away. For special occasions there is also El Olivo within La Residencia Hotel and Sebastians is also very special

There is a small intimate (and very reasonable) chinese restaurant, all freshly cooked local produce. It is called Sa Cova and must be booked in advance, and they can also arrange take away. Fantastic.

Superb Trattoria, again a 2 minutes walk for fresh pasta

The Village Cafe is great for reasonably price meals and a great view from the terrace.

Try Sa Font Fresca for coffee in the morning, overlooking the valley.

There are 2 supermarkets in Deia with a wide range of produce. Fresh bread, fresh milk and fresh pastries, as well as newspapers are available daily from Es Forn on the main street of Deia, Arxiduc Luis Salvador.

Deia has been rated by Forbes.com as in the top 10 most idyllic places to live, being an exceptionally beautiful mountain village. It was the home of Robert Graves and is now the holiday home of some well know personalities. The world famous La Residencia hotel is within 3 minute walk, offering beauty therapy treatments, to name but one.
