La Residencia, Deia, Mallorca
An exclusive resort in the artistic mountain village of Deia, where suites and rooms blend seamlessly with the ancient buildings. Formerly owned by Richard Branson, and now a Belmond hotel, this is the go-to place for celebrities and royalty visiting Mallorca. Food is excellent and many make the journey here just to dine or have lunch on the sunny terrace. Opt for tasting menus with paired wines at El Olivo or fresh tapas at Café Miró. As well as the expected spa, gym and outdoor pool, you can walk with donkeys up the mountain paths, stopping for a Mallorcan feast in a shepherd's hut; or take an art class with English artist in residence Alan Hydes. There's art throughout this five-star hotel, including 33 Mirós in the café.
The village has long been a magnet for artists, musicians and literary types, whom you may meet in the local café.
Explore Deia with its narrow streets leading to boutique shops, galleries, bars and restaurants.
By plane: direct flights from London (2 hours 25 minutes), Manchester (2 hours 40 minutes) and Edinburgh (3 hours) to Palma de Mallorca. The hotel is a 45-minute drive from the airport. Free parking on-site. skyscanner.net
