Summer Holidays to Deia
Deia Sun Holidays Review and Guide
Surely one of the more surprising ways to discover unexpected delights of Majorca is a summer holiday to Deia. At first it seems unpromising but this is the cultural capital of the island and much favoured by the glitterati. On the side of a valley in the towering Serra de Tramuntana, it’s an ancient village of local materials amid a fantastic system of irrigation channels. Take a summer holiday to Deia and join the cabal of artists, writers and musicians who’ve made it their home.
This is a place of pure theatre. A summer holiday to Deia is dramatic drives down the road that winds through olive groves to the pretty cove at the end where fisherman still cast their nets. It’s walking the challenges of the pathways around the hillside. It’s about finding the fish among the interesting rock faces in your snorkelling or diving gear and a summer holiday to Deia is about the mountain biker pitching against the terrain or the super fit cyclist joining the Tour de France training team on the roads.
One of the other little treat of a Deia summer holiday is Chopin’s house. His former winter home is now a museum dedicated to him and its former use as a monastery. Go at 11am and hear someone at the piano playing his music. You might also find yourself rubbing shoulders with Tomas Graves, son of Robert, in the bars close to the Graves’s home, now also a museum. But don’t worry; he’s used to the curiosity of Deia summer holiday visitors.
