Click here for the best places to stay in Deià

Deià is an idyllic village perched on an ocean facing hillside in the Sierra de Tramuntana and most of the best places to stay in Deia offer wonderful views over this glorious countryside.

If it wasn't for one particularly famous inhabitant, this green-shuttered charmer may have kept its quiet, rural atmosphere, but the English poet Robert Graves 'discovered' it in the 1930s and spread the word amongst his creative friends, and it soon became something of a colony for artists, actors, musicians and writers.

Graves wasn't the first person to be drawn to the beauty and peace of this eyrie of a town surrounded by its citrus orchards, almond and olive trees and vegetable gardens built in terraces, and irrigated using ancient Moorish water systems.

Deià's artistic legacy continues and there are a number of galleries, and in summer several artistic festivals, as well as the museum to Graves.

The village's popularity with wealthy visitors means that it's got more than its fair share of good restaurants and bars and two luxurious hotels.

Don't forget to book well ahead if you want a room in one of the best places to stay in Deia during July and August. Alternatively come during June or September, when it's much quieter, but the weather's still lovely, or visit in spring when you can see the stunning almond blossom in full flower.
