Engel & Völkers is brokering the new Petit Deià development on the outskirts of Mallorca’s famous village of Deià.  Located on the northwest coast and approximately 40 minutes’ drive from Palma, the project features a community of 21 individual residences in traditional Mallorcan style.

Deià has been a firm favourite with both holidaymakers and those seeking a home in the sun for many years

Deià remains one of the most sought after locations on the island and has attracted many writers and artists over the years, including the late poet and author Robert Graves and latterly Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber. The village has an understated level of quality which is reflected in the five star  Belmond La Residencia Hotel (formerly owned by Sir Richard Branson). It is also home to a Michelin star restaurant: Es Reco d’en Teix.

Petit Deià has been designed by leading local architect Antonio Juncosa, who brings his background of restoring historic homes (including the estate of S’Estaca) in the Sierra Tramuntana region to the Petit Deià development. He has combined traditional features with modern technology and comfort.

The features of the properties include:

  • typical stone faced facades and ‘persiana’ window shutters painted in soft colours in keeping with the overall environment of the village
  • The interiors feature a wood burning fire, natural stone, terracotta tiled floors and wooden beams. Modern comforts include under floor heating, air conditiong, double glazing and centralised satellite TV and WIFI.

Dramatic backdrop

Each residence is unique with its own layout on either two or three floors with private access to a large communal swimming pool and landscaped Mediterranean gardens continuing the style of the village set against the dramatic backdrop of the Sierra Tramuntana Mountains. Cala Deià is a short walk away.

Eddy Barrera of Engel & Völkers Deià, commented: “There is always demand for property in Deià and specifically for villas with a swimming pool and sea views which are priced at a premium. The challenges of restoring historic properties can be complicated in this area. However, this development avoids these problems by providing traditional style with modern day facilities and top quality and comfort in an idyllic Mallorcan setting.”

Petit Deià is on the market with Engel & Völkers, and prices for a 3-bedroom/4-bathroom residence start at €875,000 rising to €1.759 million.
