In the very heart of the charming village of Deia is Can Gelat, an old Mallorquin house, refurbished.
It is the location of a legendary shop in The Clot, which was the main shopping place for residents living in this part of Deia back in the day, where many residents would hang out, and you will hear many wonderful stories about the owners of the Clot Shop if you talk to the local Deian residents.
Deia has a strong community, which is made up of native families that go back centuries and also many foreigners from all over the world, who reside in Deia all the year round. There is something very special about the community of Deia, which one feels very strongly after hanging out in the village. Deia is an artist’s colony which has a history that goes back generations, and with the perfect mixture of the new influx of artists living here. Can Gelat is in a residential area of Deia, where you will hear the sounds of the authentic village life that makes Deia so special.
You feel the warmness of the house immediately as you enter, inviting and homely and tastefully designed, with some of the paintings made by local Deian artists. There is something intriguing to look at in every corner of the house, and the artwork has been collected from all over the world, rich in culture and charm. Also there are many interesting books to read during your stay at Can Gelat, many of them about or by one of our most inspirational Deian residents, Robert Graves.
Can Gelat has 3 double ensuite bedrooms and also an apartment with a double bedroom and it’s own private bathroom and living area. The property has 2 living areas, as well as a big garden. The kitchen is a large functional space with an adjoining dining area, with plenty of workspace to cook delicious meals.
The garden is in a stunning courtyard and has an abundance of vibrant Mediterranean flowers and trees, and the backdrop of the garden is an ancient 500 year old ruin, which has been beautifully and innovatively restored. You can lie here looking up at the breath taking Tramuntana mountains, watching them changing colour as dawn turns to dusk, whilst listening to the wildlife, the birds singing gloriously.
Mere words are not enough to describe the relaxed and conducive atmosphere of this beautiful property. Can Gelat is truly a place where you can unwind and recharge.
