Why Gabriela Viñas chose Deià
The house was the summer retreat of one of the most prominent Majorcan writers. Thanks to the holiday rental income; my family has been able to keep it and upgrade it year after year.
What makes this Cottage unique
There are few houses so close to the village, which offer the possibility of walking to the store or the restaurants and, at the same time, the propertry seems to be in the countryside with panoramic views to the village, the mountains and the sea.

Perfect place to stay
Review of the house.
This was the perfect place for us. The house is a delightful mix of stylishly modern (heating, air con, garden furniture) and a typical ' casa rural', (tiled floors, stone benches, traditional kitchen). We loved too being only 5 mins walk from the village ( a bit longer walking backup!) but being able to sit outside in the fairly wild garden with the most fantastic views across the village and to the sea.It was very peaceful and quiet with just the sound of the occasional donkey or sheep or a guitarist in the village .
Gabriela was very easy to communicate with and super helpful with our luggage. Deia is picture perfect. Crowded at times but easy to get away and find quiet areas. The house was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed and we managed without a car, on the bus and walking to explore the area. We would definitely return.
Reasonable place to stay but a few issues
When we made our booking there wasn't too many other options in Deia. The owners were very responsive to questions ahead of time and when we were there. The place was generally clean and had most of what it said it would. However, we experienced two issues that we would not expect to have to deal with. Firstly, the baby cot which we double-checked ahead of time would be available, was moldy. As such our baby had to sleep in a makeshift bed on the floor surrounded by suitcases, until it could be replaced the next day. Far from ideal. Secondly, some of the chairs were particularly unsteady and we had two instances where we fell off chairs. Thankfully noone was hurt, but again this was a basic expectation that wasn't met.
Overall, it's a beautiful place to be but the experience could have been smoother.
I am very sorry to hear that you did not have a pleasant stay. Anyway, I think you have forgotten to mention a few details about it. First, when you made the reservation you requested not to be charged for the baby. Even so, you were provided with a high chair, a baby bathtub and a cot. On the other hand, you did not warn me about any problem with the cot after 2 nights of your arrival. If there was a problem, I could have solved it the same day of your arrival. Besides this, after your arrival I was informed that a relative of yours was going to spend 2 nights at the house. You were informed that there was no problem, as long as the extra cleaning and laundry expenses were covered and I informed you about the price for 2 nights. Although you agreed with it, you left without paying the stay of your relative. Finally, please accept my apologies if you fell off the chair. I would like to inform you that the house is covered with a liability insurance.
Lovely simple & peaceful house, well-situated - Casa bonita y tranquila, bien situada
Loved the house - it's simple but well set up for family stays. We particularly enjoyed the sunny terraces. Nos encantó la casa, es simple pero funcional con mucha agua caliente. Disfrutamos especialmente las terrazas soleadas.
Muchas gracias por su comentario y me alegra que hayán disfrutado de una estancia relajante en el campo.
Lovely homely property with fantastic views.
We absolutely loved our stay at Sa Travessa. Celia was a lovely host/owner and was very helpful.
The house itself is spacious, light and airy. It is comfortable and well equipped.
The outside seating areas have lovely views and catch the cooling breeze.
It is only a short walk into the village where there are good amenities.
We would not hesitate recommending this property which is good value.
Thank you, Dawn!
It was a pleasure to have you as our guests. I, really, appreciate how tidy and clean was the house after you left.
Wir haben uns in dem Haus sehr wohlgefühlt. Deia ist ein sehr schöner Ort. Wer es spartanig mag, wird sich dort sehr wohl fühlen. Die Gastgeberin ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit .
Merci à Gabriela
Nous avons passé un beau séjour chez Gabriela, vue magnifique sur Deià.
Deia is perfect for those who like hiking, the culture, the art, the ethnological values and the crafts.
