Only half an hour from Palma, Deia holidays offer first class accommodation, superb restaurants, cultural sightseeing and spectacular countryside.

Those down by the shore provide a perfect setting for an evening meal with their reflected lights bobbing in the water. The fish restaurants here are excellent with fish freshly caught by the local fishermen. Island wines are very pleasing to the palate and are inexpensive. If you are new to the flavours of Spain, order tapas and you'll receive a variety of tasty, bite sized morsels. They are useful if you wish to stave off hunger during the sometimes long gap between lunch and dinner. Children are always welcome customers and their taste and portion sizes are usually accommodated.
