We were the only guests for about an hour or so but the waiter made us feel very comfortable and the music was just at the right level. The food was very interesting and full of flavour. The waiter recommended the lemon sorbet with vodka. It was stunning. The aperitif of curry sauce was the most unusual drink I've ever had!more
Deya (or Deia) is located on Sierra de Tramuntana between Valldemossa and Soller, about 25km from Palma de Mallorca.
We drove there from Valldmosa, the windy road is very scenic.
Bus #210 from Palma goes there (in about 50’) passing by Valldemossa and ends up to Soller.
Lot of people use the paths between those villages for (looong) hiking.
Deyá Warnings and Dangers
As regular Deia vistors for many years we have stayed in the Son Canals area which offers a very good range of apartments and villas on the edge of the village - peaceful but within easy walking distance of the shops & restaurants.
The infant school from which we used only to hear the sound of communal singing in the morning has now become a community centre whose activities in the space of 1 week included;
- buffet & disco to 3.00 am
- adult boules on 2 evenings
- nightly use of playground by screaming children
- nightly use of tennis courts by loud adolescents
- Morning and afternoon 4x4 race to deposit or collect children.
Building work also continues in the area.
Deia is still lovely but not the peaceful setting it recently was.Related to:

Deyá Off The Beaten Path
On my way to Deyá I saw this magnificent spot. I took some time here to enjoy the view and eat something to renew my energies.If U take a good view, U'll see a road in the border of this peninsula, heading to the end of it. Later a found how to get here but I was short of time, so next it will be, for sure!more
Climbing to Deja from Soller on my bike at stopped at this beatifull spot. Later, when I asked they told me that this is one of the most beautiful views of the Majorcan coastline. I recommended to stop at "En Son Marroig" to gaze over the edge of the cliff. Wonderfull view and great place to rest for a while.more
