Visiting the house was an unexpected highlight. Much of the charm of the house has been retained although some spaces have been transformed into exhibition spaces, which are also well curated. Try to have time to sit in the garden.

An interesting place to visit. The intro video is very informative and wandering around the house equally so. Follow it up with a visit to Deià church graveyard where Robert Graves lies at rest. His grave isn't particularly obvious - there's a plaque on the...More

Nice grounds and views. House was accessible and very interesting even though we have not read any of Robert Grave’s books - although now we will! Interesting displays of letters written to the author from other notable people including Winston Churchill.

Despite knowing little about Robert Graves, I found the "casa de Robert Graves" to be the best thing I have seen in two months of travelling in Spain and Mallorca. The wonderfully well preserved rooms, the beautiful gardens, the painstakinly prepared and interesting and often...More

Thank-you for the review. The best thing about the quiet January visits are the fantastic oranges which Miguel looks after so well. You were very fortunate to have some.

The house is very interesting to visit. Obviously more so if you have any interest in Graves himself but the written explanations around the house will give you a good idea even if you start in ignorance. As others have noted, the gorgon who guards...More
