Welcome to my home, to Deia, and to the beautiful mountains and coastline of Northern Mallorca. I hope that you have a wonderful stay here and return home with beautiful memories.
Villa Magda has been an artist’s studio, a writer’s home and the site of many bucolic evenings with some of the world’s great artists, musicians and writers; evenings where food, wine and conversation flowed in equal tides of happiness and spirited attention.
Today, it is my home which I share with visitors who seek somewhere off the beaten track that is quiet, beautiful and romantic.
Unlike many of today’s AirBnb properties, Villa Magda is primarily a home and then a holiday rental. That means it is not furnished with Ikea furniture and a flat-pack kitchen but is lined with memories and mementos of my life. I hope that you will enjoy the sense of place that this creates and respect it as well.
The villa sits at the top of the bluffs overlooking the Cala and the sea with a path that leads down to the Cala and your early morning swim.
The Villa is located down a farm track that wends through olive groves before reaching a small parking area at the end. The villa sits overlooking the sea and Cala Deia on the top of the hills side.
The interior includes 2 double bedrooms (one with Emperor sized mattress) as well as a double mezzanine bed-space above the dining / writing room. There is a fully equipped kitchen, shower/bathroom and a main room complete with upright (tuned) piano
There is a chillout space, various small tables for writing, thinking or reflecting, a growing garden accompanied by the sound of the sea and the bells of the resident sheep.
The house is powered by solar panels that provide 80% of the energy needs of the house. We recycle our water for feeding the garden. Our rain water is stored for the summer and you can compost most of the kitchen waste.
Somehow, the evening sunset at Magda is always wonderful whatever the weather!
Unlike most of the houses in Deia, the house has full central heating, a wood burning stove, full insulation and double glazed windows… and you get the pleasure of watching the winter seas and listening to the waves breaking on the shores.
After sunset the skies fill with stars. Dim the lights, lie back on one of the benches and start counting!
