Worth a visit. Lovely house and grounds, but beware that they don't accept credit cards. You must have cash.

A short walk from the center of Deia with fabulous views of the church on the hill to your left where Robert Graves is buried.
Only 6 euros entrance fee. Proceed to view an excellent film which I loved the scenes of Mallorca in bygone days. Excellent.
The gardens are lovely and well tended.
The house is a microcosm of a house from the 50/60's. Beautifully preserved and so interesting.
A thoroughly worthwhile visit.
In the shop I was interested to contribute a book...Majorca Observed by Robert Graves which includes drawings of Majorca published in 1965.....but only copies in German were available so I bought a second hand English copy upon my return. Well worth the £28!

After an amazing bus ride to Deia from Palma (€5.40 return and brilliant value) look for the signs to the La Casa de Robert Graves. Watch the video first and then go round the house. What I didn't know was that the very distinguished German historian, Ranke was his maternal grandfather. Goodbye to all That (apparently David Cameron's favourite book but not to be dismissed because of that) classic story of the First World War and the contrast for Graves of the horrors of the war to the tranquility of Deia was therapeutic. Interesting example of the ex pat man of letters comforted by Laura and then Beryl. Follow the visit by going to the parish church where Graves' grave is with lovely views across the fields to the sea.

Thoroughly enjoyed the visit to this gem of a place.The information about Robert Graves is presented in a very interesting way. The gardens are beautifully maintained and we had the privilege of meeting the gardener and having a chat with him.It is well worth a visit

A short walk from Deia, Robert Graves House is well worth the hour or so spent there. The main rooms in the house are as they were when Robert Graves lived there with many personal effects, particularly in his study. It gives an intimate sense of his life there. Other parts of the house are given over to displays of interesting documents and manuscripts and interesting videos, notably the BBC archive biographical video that starts your visit. An enjoyable insight pitched well that demands just the right amount of your time.
