Spotlight #11: Son Canals, Deià, modern Mallorca living with a traditional twist minutes from Deià centreNovember 20, 2019

Every month we bring to your attention a tiny part of the wonderful West Coast of Mallorca. This month, we turn the spotlight on Son Canals, one of the most recently built areas of Deià and utterly in keeping with the charm of the village.

Son Canals is on the outskirts of the village when you’re heading towards Soller, below the floodlit wooden walkway that takes you to La Casa de Robert Graves and Cala Deià. It’s a truly convenient five minutes’ stroll to Belmond La Residencia, Bar Sa Fonda and all the other delights in the centre of Deià.

Because Son Canals is south-west facing, all the homes here enjoy hours of Mediterranean sunshine.

So, if you’re looking for somewhere to buy or rent in Deià, the location of Son Canals is perfecto. You can relax and enjoy hours of sun and when you fancy a little grocery shopping or an evening out in the village, it’s on your doorstep. No need to ever get in a car.

Each of the homes at Son Canals has its own designated parking spot – a rare luxury in central Deià – and a private entrance.

Modern living with a traditional twist at Son Canals

Building at Son Canals commenced in 2000. The homes at Son Canals were all designed by highly respected Mallorcan architect Toni Juncosa who is responsible for other delightful properties in the village.

As Maria Garde, West Coast Sales Director for Charles Marlow, Mallorca says ‘The homes invite modern and convenient living with a traditional twist, meaning they share the rustic features you find in most Deià homes: wooden beams, log burning fireplaces and stone clad exteriors with charming shutters. They’re great, easy to maintain homes you can dip in and out of throughout the year. Each has been built to a high standard and all are different. Some are one floor apartments and others two story duplexes. Some have pools and others a terrace. Some even have that all-important sea view. Most offer a view of the gorgeous Deià church. In the evening, when the church is illuminated, this is especially beautiful.’
