If the main street is Deia’s pulse, with its vibrant life of bars and restaurants, then The Clot is the village’s bohemian soul. Calm, naturally inspiring and full of authentic town houses.
You actually hear The Clot before you see it, as a torrent, or stream, of crystal clear water rushes down from the mountains and winds its way through the middle of the area. Surely, nature and the calmness that comes with it are two of The Clot’s main features. Beautifully wriggled around the village torrent, it is a secluded and private yet extremely central part of Deià; a calm core of an undeniably vibrant village.
Here, traffic is limited and one-way which provides a clear contrast to the busy main street from where The Clot can be accessed. Especially in spring, an excess of wild plants – from avocado trees to wild flowers offering an array of colours and lovely smells – set the tone for the housing here.
It is everything but dead though: At the foot of The Clot lies one of the village’s prettiest spots, the S’Hortet tea room and cafe – where Charles Marlow celebrated our summer party in 2018. and where the narrow street ends, a trail continues straight down to the Cala, Deià’s incredibly picturesque beach. Also, just behind the older town houses of The Clot – some of which are tastefully restored inside – lie several modern buildings.
The Clot’s housing still mostly consists of rustic Deia town houses – some of which are thoroughly renovated and modernised on the inside.
It is also here you find some of the most attractively priced of Deià’s homes. Hidden here, they often offer enough outdoor space to install a plunge pool or a private terrace, perfect for a quiet morning coffee, yet they avoid most of the village’s hectic tourism.
More than anything though, all homes in The Clot are placed truly in the heart of the village: as close to the beach as you get, just a few minutes walk from all most of the social features the village has to offer, yet private and wonderfully tranquil.
In other words, The Clot offers a rich variety of life and often a more tranquil lifestyle than what Deià is often known for. But the quality remains the same.
