Deya is a calm spot on the northwest coast of Majorca. Known for its rich artistic heritage, it has become a second home for countless painters, writers and musicians over the years who come to portray the breathtaking landscape. A trip to Deya is about more than beachside relaxation, it's about getting back in touch with nature. With wide open spaces and plenty of fresh air, Deya is a must-visit for family holidays to Majorca.
Deya is nestled away, up in the Serra Tramuntana mountains of Majorca. There are breathtaking views of the sea and wooded surroundings that have inspired many to grab their brushes and start painting. Deya is home to musicians, writers and artists of all sorts, and visitors to this peaceful destination will find their own creativity awoken in no time.
Deya is famous in artist circles for being the home to many celebrities at one time or another. As the 20th century drew to a close the town grew with the times and Mick Jagger, Mark Knopfler and Mike Oldfield all fled to Deya to enjoy its special kind of removal. Today Michael Douglas and Catherina Zeta Jones call Deya home. These latest residents of what is one of the smallest municipalities in Majorca just prove that size doesn't matter, and that Deya is in fact the artistic capital of the island.
