The Mallorca/Majorca region
Mallorca covers an area of 1,405 sq. miles (3,640 sq. km) and has a resident population of around 600,000. The main concentration of resort hotels is concentrated toward the Southwest on the strands that flank Palma, with other white sand beaches dotted along the Northeast coast.
On the Northwest side of the island fertile foothills march inland to the spectacular peaks of the Serra de Tramuntana. Attractive drystone wall terraces, edged with olive, oak and pine trees climb the slopes along with heather, and aromatic herbs.
On the fertile central plains windmills activate irrigation systems allowing farmers to rear livestock, cereals, grapes and citrus fruits.We recommend a visit one of the many 'Bodegas' and vineyards where you can sample some very good locally produced wine.
Every season is magical on this idyllic island. In the cooler months the hills and mountains offer limitless opportunities for walking and climbing . In summer you can take a boat trip, go fishing,swimming or simply soak up the sun by the coast. The warmest months are July and August. The sunny but cooler early spring time sees the abundant almond and olive tree orchards heavy with blossom, and the ground carpeted in new grass and wildflowers.
The sight seeing possibilities are endless. Take the scenic vintage electric train ride from Soller through the heart of the mountains to the plains and onto the island 's capital city of Palma . Spend a day in historic Palma withs its 13th C Gothic cathedral, Almudaina palace and 11th C Arabs baths.The shopping areas are some of the finest to be found. Although predominately a Christian island, past Roman and Moorish conquerors have left many fine examples of their architecture in buildings and fortresses across Mallorca. A wide variety are open to the public .
There are several nature reserves on the island and you may be lucky to see black vultures soaring above Gorg Blau reservoir.
The island boasts several cave formations. In the largest, Coves del Drac, accompanied by the echoing strains of Chopin,a gently gliding boat ride will take you through the caves past amazing patterns of eons old stalactites and stalagmites.
Mallorca is famous for its pearl making industry. The pearls are made from fish scales and at first glance difficult to tell from the real ones. The factories are open to visitors and the pearl making process can be viewed together with the displays of unique jewellery that are on sale.
Traditional street markets are held daily all over the island. Location and days for these, fiestas, and daily events are published in the local paper and can be found in most guide books.
Horse trotting races are held in the hippodrome on the outskirts of Palma and in Manacor. This is a fun event suitable for families and can be watched while eating a meal in the dining area close to the track. Racing usually commences early evening when the temperature is cooler. Details are can be found in the local paper.
Deia is situated on the stunning and rugged North West coast of Mallorca in the Tramuntana mountain range, whose highest peak, the Teix rises above the village. The village's honey coloured stone houses hug the hillside around the 16C Church of Saint John the Baptist. The tranquilly of this pretty mountain village has long attracted artists, musicians, writers and poets. The English writer Robert Graves is buried in the little cemetery behind the church. His local house is now a visitor centre commemorating his life and works.
There is a variety of good restaurants, cafes and bars in the village and several just a short car ride away. During the evenings in busier periods it is best to book a table. Locals tend to eat later and the places start fill up after 8.30pm. There is often live music in several of the bars where you can go to listen or join in. You may recognise one or two faces playing along with the band and local musicians.
Try breakfasting at one of the cafes while browsing through the newspapers. The Coffee and pastries are delicious.
The lower general shop (closed Mondays) bakes bread, pastries and savouries daily and we can highly recommended them. General stock is also fairly comprehensive and there is a good selection of wines.The upper shop (closed Sundays) is smaller but also has a fair range of goods.There are several gift and clothing shops on the main street.
Deia hosts regular music recitals and art exhibitions as well as the annual Deia music festival. Details of recitals can be found locally or on the web link 'music Deia'.
The lovely little fishing harbour of Cala de Deia is a leisurly 20 mins walk down through the village and olive groves, or 10 mins by car. The water is usually beautifully clear and clean and offers excellent swimming and snorkelling . A beach bar and restaurant are close by, or take your own picnic and spend the day sunbathing.
Several scenic walks start and finish in Deia and can be planned to suit all abilities. Walking route planners and guide books are available for guests to use during their stay. The local village tennis courts are a 3 minute walk from the house. There is an excellent small archeological museum and a small church museum in Deia.
9kms up the coast is the town of Soller. Bikes can be hired here.Take the little tram to Port de Soller. Here you will find a lovely clean sandy beach right beside a promenade lined with cafes, restaurants and craft shops. A good day out for adults and children. Ferries also leave from the port by the marina on sightseeing trips.

"Super house, great location, most relaxing holiday!"

Thank you for staying at Can Coix and for your review.
Can't help noticing you experienced the same malady we have when visiting the house - reluctance to move from the sun loungers on the terrace (unless going for more local wine and nibbles from the well stocked local shop). It is hard but someone has to do it! We would be delighted to welcome you again to see if you would find it any easier.

"Well-appointed spacious villa in a great location"
Deia is a great place: picturesque hillside setting with winding old streets; a very convivial atmosphere; great restaurants, and a nice pace - in Deia they take everything slowly, except your money. The restaurants can be pricey, but you get what you pay for - fine dining is available at several restaurants. The excellent bus service can connect you with pretty Valldemosa, bustling Soller and the elegant city of Palma. There's also great walking in the surrounding hills.
The villa itself is spacious and well-appointed, and very well-situated so that all of Deia's amenities are within easy walking distance. The kitchen is well-equiped, and the bedrooms comfortable. The outside terrace area is most pleasant, with good views across the village and framed by stunning mountains. The owners (Robyn & Tom) were helpful and we have no hestitation in recommending both the villa and Deia for a lovely spring break.
We were pleased to be able to introduce you to this lovely area.Your experience and review will be helpful to other potential guests. Thank you for staying in CanCoix. We hope you will come again?
Restaurants can be expensive if you eat out all the time but the ones in Deia are very good and prices and type are varied. Daily specials are often good value. We use the barbecue a lot and Mallorcan produce is very good. This keeps prices down.
