Deya is a beautiful, old, quiet, stone village perched on steep slopes, surrounded by land cultivated on narrow terraces. An attractive church presides over the houses, which are connected by narrow lanes. It was the home of the poet Robert Graves and is still popular with artists and writers. It also has a small expatriate population and is a favourite of more mature Europeans, wanting the quiet life. Not much happens here and that's the way they like it. The village's few amenities are situated along a ¼-mile stretch of the main road running between Soller and Valldemossa.
Deya is situated halfway along the NW coast, 18½ mls N of Palma, 6¼ mls W of Soller and NE of Valldemossa. It is 23½ mls from the airport. It is positioned on a vast, natural amphitheatre in the mountainside and above the sea. Magnificent country of intense blues and greens, with mountain peaks looming behind.
