This well designed and quintessential Mallorquin house is in the heart of Deià - a typical village that hits just the right balance between tranquility and energy. The winding streets are home to many great restaurants, independent galleries and shops selling local arts and crafts. Conveniently located in the centre of Deia, the house has a beautiful and peaceful private garden, complete with swimming pool, Jacuzzi, chill-out area and shaded dining area, perfect for enjoying a leisurely al fresco meal. The gardens are beautifully kept, and guests can enjoy the lovely views of the nearby mountains. The house belonged to Fernando Shwarz, a famed Argentinean philosopher and writer, and his bohemian and creative influence is evident throughout the property. Exposed wooden beams, flagstone flooring and quality local furnishings create a warm and welcoming feel, and this house is perfect for a family or group of friends who want to enjoy a stay in a typical Mallorquin townhouse. The living room is elegant and comfortable, and leads to the bright and spacious dining room, with seating for eight and classic French windows that open to the patio outside. The kitchen is understated and traditional, yet comes fully equipped with all the amenities and modern conveniences that guests may need during their stay. Each of the bedrooms has been individually decorated and furnished with the utmost care, the master bedroom boasting a small private terrace. For added privacy one of the bedrooms is accessed from the garden, has its own en-suite bathroom, and is perfect for additional guests. The house also comes with two parking spaces in the centre of Deia, but due to its central location it is also ideal for those travelling without a car. Stylish, warm and with a great outdoor space, this is a great option for those looking to enjoy village life during their time on the island.

We had a great time at Ramon Llull. The quaint village neighbourhood is a plus factor for leisurely stroll and getting lost in. Great views everywhere and interesting places to explore like the church, cemetery, the canons, backlanes and hilltops.
The villa was comfortable and well equipped with modern appliances for our own cooking, laundry, entertainment and luxury living, without losing its own old-world charm. We enjoyed using the fresh olives, oranges and rosemary for cooking. The whole compound was green and pleasing to the eyes.
We only had intermittent problem with the water heater and heating system which was finally fixed on the day we had to leave. And that too did not spoil our wonderful stay here.
