Deià: VIPS, urban legends and a magical nook on the island

Gertrude Stein told Robert Graves "If you can resist paradise, go to Mallorca". And Graves resisted it. He came to Deià and settled in this idyllic mountain village with a bohemian taste, which has attracted many other artists. The main street links the whole village and on both sides of it you'll find art galleries, bars and cafés where you can write a poem or just have a beer. If you're lucky Van Morrison might turn up and start playing guitar (you can hear such urban legends). Or the most famous neighbour in the area, Michael Douglas, might just appear.

Apart from the great deal of VIPS, Deià is one of the most magical nooks of the island, located near the sea in the mountains. It is worth coming around (at sunset if possible to enjoy it from Son Marroig). It's just a pleasure for the senses.
