On a complete happenstance, I arrived in Salema without foreknowledge and thoughts of a stay. The village with only one street, I was welcomed by the ladies, wives of the fishermen, who offer rooms and startling hospitality. I wanted a tiny apartment with a memorable view. I was led to John, owner of A Mare who owned a gorgeous pension up on a rock but also individual apartments. He gave me a gem, with a small kitchen, sun-drenched patio which overlooks to the sea, the tip of the Cape and eternal bliss!
A Mare is a stunning pension on a great location, each room with bathroom facilities and free breakfast fit for a luxury. John, the owner, lives next door and a constant presence of amiability and help and suggestions. The pension which sits on a huge rock overlooks the beach, ocean and village, all of which a few steps down. The view of beach and ocean hemmed in on both sides by great cliffs is fantastically indescribable. And towards the farther end, the mythic and solitary Cape of St. Vincent.
