The Deia Olive Press, ‘a blog with a view’, is the blog of Charles Marlow, an independent estate agency set in the stunning village of Deia on the West Coast of Mallorca.

A freelance writer for many years, David is the author of a number of books and magazine articles. He is fascinated by the remarkably rich cultural history of Deia, from Robert Graves to the present day, and is currently researching and writing a book on the subject.
