    The 'Artist Village'

    Deia

    Deia, on the rugged west coast of the island is a quiet village (no tourist buses allowed) which has attracted many artists and literary figures over the years.

    Don't venture here if you suffer from travel sickness - typical mountain roads, lots of twists and turns and 'don't look down' views!!

    Welcome to Deià.

    Tucked away in the north-west corner of Mallorca, high in the island's Northern Jurassic Sierras, this captivating coastal mountain village is a million miles away from the fleshpot clubs and fish-and-chip pubs that most people think of when they think of the Balearic Islands – Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza.

    British poet and author Robert Graves first settled here in the 1930s, and wrote his most important works, including I, Claudius and Claudius the God, hanging out at the village cafe and bathing at the Cala Deià (Deià beach).

    Today people still come to Deià, attracted by the fantasy of a slow, simple lifestyle.

    a calm village at the west coast. It's the home of several artists. Of the 400 inhabitants, 1/4 are foreigners.
