    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Mediterranean life style experience related in nature.

    In Mallorca, a wide variety of landscapes can be found; but, without doubt the most stunning
    one is the landscape of one of its 5 regions, the Tramuntana Mountain Range, recently
    declared as Natural Park.

    Deyá is one of the villages of this region. It’s the fifth smallest village of
    Mallorca with a population of less than 1000 inhabitants. The village is settled on a valley with a very deep olive oil culture which, as the name of the village, is coming from the Moorish period. Deyá Cove: The ideal place for
    the locals to have a swim and where the biggest torrent that crosses the village finished. A nice lunch with fresh fish by the sea can be enjoyed in one of their 2 restaurants.

    The neighbour village of Valldemossa, surrounded by mountains and with its Cartuja.

    The neighbour village of Sóller, situated some 3 Km. inland, from its port, 'Port de Sóller',
    the town lies in a large, fertile, bowl-shaped valley. Sóller shares its valley with the village
    of Fornalutx and the hamlet of Biniaraix.

    Llucalcari: old group of 20 houses belonging to Deyá municipality, from where you can access to “Es Canyaret”, a small stony beach very valued because of their clear waters and its fountain. Nudism is practiced and its mud has
    therapeutic properties.
