Expert review of Sa Pedrissa
Sa Pedrissa is one of the forerunners of the agroturismo (boutique farmhouse accommodation) movement across the Balearic islands. The seat of Archduke Louís Salvador of Austria in the 19th century, the property was later bought by the Morey family who ran it as an olive mill for many years before its most recent incarnation as a boutique hotel. Today, it's one of the most peaceful getaways on the island.
A real-life garden of Eden perched on a clifftop above the rocky coves of Deià, and hidden by lush jungle-like gardens shaded by thousand-year-old olive trees.
There are plenty of period pieces knocking around these rooms, as well as rather old-fashioned armchairs and sofas, but it is plush and comfortable, and at least it’s not Ikea. The standard double has vampish, red damask textiles, but if you can push the budget to upgrade to a deluxe you get a sea view. The junior suite adds a balcony to the mix, while the Garden suite is like a little cottage in the Cotswolds – albeit with better weather – with a pretty garden patio. The Tower Suite has a crows' nest terrace and large living area, while the Sea View Suite is a good choice for families who want to self-cater as it has a small kitchenette. All in all, a remarkable range shoe-horned into a fairly small space.
Truly lovely outdoor areas, plus an inviting living room for relaxing by the fire.
A country-style restaurant serves updated Majorcan classics like pa amb oli (bread and garlic mayo) topped with roast veggies and smoked fish, and foie terrine with flambéed wild strawberries.
In-house massage and yoga classes.
‘Kind, welcoming and attentive’ says one of the guests. I’d say that just about sums it up.
Couples, families with kids, and anyone looking for the Deià experience without the price tag.
Generally good value for money, but be wary of escalating prices in high season.
