Sa Llupia is a beautiful, luxury villa in Mallorca, situated between the Tramuntana mountains and the Mediterranean Sea, in the picture-postcard village of Deià. Sleeping up to 8 guests in 4 bedrooms, this stunning villa offers luxury self-catering in a breathtaking location with panoramic views over the village to the mountains and sea beyond.
With its traditional stone walls, terracotta tiled roof and pale green shutters, Sa Llupia maintains its rustic roots, whilst combining modern comforts with luxury living - think fresh sun-bleached walls with warm earthy hues, spacious open-plan areas brimming with natural light, exquisite Spanish art and bespoke furniture.
This luxury Mallorca villa boasts designer touches from the likes of Roche Bobois and Ralph Lauren, along with state-of-the-art appliances to make your stay as comfortable and effortless as possible. Outside, you can cool off in the tempting swimming pool or sunbathe on the terrace amidst fragrant trees, enjoying stunning views over the village.
A couple of minutes’ walk brings you to Deià’s winding village streets, crammed with fantastic restaurants, unique shops and art galleries, while the 5-star La Residencia is virtually on your doorstep, with its spa, restaurants and tennis courts.
Choose from four stunning double bedrooms furnished with bespoke furniture, luxurious bedding and unique design pieces. All have fabulous mountain and village views with en-suite stone, slate and marble shower rooms; the master bedroom has both a free-standing bath and separate shower. Two bedrooms have locally made four-poster beds and the other two can be made up as doubles or twins. On the ground floor, you’ll find a cloakroom just off the hallway and an outdoor shower room with WC.
The living areas enjoy subtle neutral tones and designer pieces by Roche Bobois, Ralph Lauren, Decorus, Cherner Chair Company and Maxalto. The living room itself offers relaxed, comfy seating, a magnificent vaulted beamed ceiling and an open fire for the cooler months. There’s also a spectacular Stelle chandelier by Barcelona Design which casts an impressive glow over the double-height ceiling in the hallway.
The kitchen is equipped with state-of-the-art Miele appliances including induction hob, double oven, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher, larder fridge and freezer, while the utility room has wine storage and an extra fridge and freezer. Dine under the magnificent Kevin Reilly ‘Altar’ chandelier suspended over the Andrianna Shamaris teak butterfly kitchen table, or alfresco on the covered terrace (with Weber BBQ) for long balmy evenings under starry skies.
If you'd rather leave the culinary creations to the professionals, we can arrange for a private chef to cook for you, using the freshest, locally sourced ingredients. Alternatively, sample the restaurants, cafes and bars on your doorstep, many with Michelin stars.
There are plenty of spaces to relax outside. Take a dip in the pool with swim-jet, or sunbathe on the terrace with its uninterrupted village and mountain views. Sun loungers and comfy chairs are well placed so you can enjoy both sunshine and shade under the parasols.
Olive and Cypress trees surround the pool, while a burst of pink bougainvillea creeps up and over the stone walls of the villa. Add to this, fragrant orange and lemon trees, and you have a truly tranquil space to enjoy. There’s also an outdoor shower room, perfect after a dip in the pool.
The coast is within easy reach. For beaches, head to Cala Deià, the local shingle cove popular with local artists and writers, or drive to Puerto de Sóller (20 mins) with its sandy beach and boat club where you can hire motor boats to take you along the coast. Puerto de Valldemossa is just a 15-minute drive away, with a small, shingle beach, ideal for sunbathing or swimming.
The perfect way to see the coastline of North West Mallorca is from the sea, and Mezzo Magic can tailor-make your boat trip, whether it’s a few hours along the coast, or a tour of the coves with snorkelling, followed by lunch at a hidden gem of a restaurant. A number of aqua-parks can also be found on the island, such as Western Park in Cala Figuera, approx. 40 minutes’ drive away.
Deià is a superb place for walking with a number of paths and tracks to follow around the hillside – most are clearly marked with red dots and cairns. Mallorca Hiking specialises in tailor-made, guided walking tours. For the super-fit, Deià also offers excellent mountain biking territory and Tramuntana Tours offers guided cycling tours and cycle hire from their shop in nearby Soller. There are also public tennis courts in the centre of Deià and we’d be happy to arrange tennis coaching for you.
For something more relaxing, let us arrange for a beauty therapist to visit the villa for a relaxing massage or facial, or, stroll to the 5-star La Residencia hotel, virtually on your doorstep, where you’ll have access to a wonderful spa and tennis courts.
Dining here is gastronomic heaven. We love La Residencia's restaurant, El Olivio, which offers gracious fine dining, or the intimate, Michelin-starred Es Raco d'es Teix, otherwise known as Josef's - booking here is essential in high season, especially for a highly sought-after seat on the terrace to soak up the incredible village and mountain views. Other favourites include Sebastian's, where the simple philosophy is unusually good food with friendly, efficient service; the Village Café, which serves excellent Mediterranean cuisine; and Xelini, arguably the best place for tapas in Deià.
Be sure to wander the cobbled lanes up to the romantic 13th century Church of St John the Baptist with its spectacular village and sea views. Deià holds its annual fiesta in recognition of the Patron Saint on 24th June. The church is also the final resting place of one of the village's most famous residents - the poet and novelist Robert Graves. Take the Deià artists' tour to learn more about him, or visit C’an Alluny, his former home and now a museum.
For some retail therapy, explore Deià’s art galleries and small boutiques, try Soller’s excellent Saturday market, or, for more extensive shopping, drive to vibrant Palma (approx 30 mins). Whilst there are no golf courses in Deià itself, there’s a fantastic course 25 minutes’ drive away - Golf de Son Termes - regarded as one of the most ecological courses in Mallorca.
Sa Llupia is perched on the hillside between the Tramuntana mountain range and the sea in the picture-postcard village of Deià, Mallorca. Flights into Palma de Mallorca Airport are available from most UK airports and Sa Llupia is approximately 30 minutes' drive from the airport. We can arrange car hire or private transfers from the airport.
