Expert review of Hostal Villa Verde
Arriving at this traditional village cottage surrounded by other, equally pretty village houses tumbling over with bright coloured flowers, lush planted terraces and a sapphire blue sea, your first thought is: it can’t be. It seems almost too good to be true, but the Villa Verde is real enough, and boasts views to rival any of the nearby five-star hotels. Simple, but charming in a no-frills kind of way, this is one of the best deals on the island.
Right in the heart of Deià, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful villages in Spain.
Small and basic, and some are a bit dark (bear in mind what you are paying, people) but they are pleasantly decorated with lace curtains and old fashioned counterpains. It's rather like stepping into the past. I’d dig out those extra euros and treat yourself to a room with a balcony. Room 21 is my favourite since it has a balcony with lovely views across the valley. There is some confusing information on Trip Advisor about road noise. Villa Verde is not on a main road (the single lane leading up to it is extremely quiet), and its a considerable distance from the main road coming into town.
A lovely sunny terrace for breakfast or tucking into your own picnic for lunch or supper (the village shop is excellent for cheese, charcuterie, fruit and vegetables and a decent selection of wine).
Breakfast is a simple affair: bread and jam, juice, yogurt, tea and coffee. There are plenty of good places in the village for lunch, dinner and drinks.
Warm, but occasionally goes AWOL - don’t expect 24-hour attention here.
Cultured, inquisitive folk, along with roving artists and writers seeking the same inspiration that caught so many of the village's past and present residents.
Probably the cheapest place to stay in Deìa, if not this entire stretch of the West Coast. A bargain.
