About A Maré

Welcome to A Maré, a lovely family-owned guest house offering traditional Algarve accommodation with private rooms, apartments and studios. Located in the heart of the quaint fishing village of Salema, only 50 meters from the ocean, enjoying spectacular views out to sea. As the first guesthouse built in the fishing village of Salema, built in the early 1980s, we are proud to continue providing quality accommodation to our guests. Originally a bar and restaurant with rooms, we have undergone extensive, sympathetic alterations, most recently in 2021. The renovations have been carried out to elevate our property to include all of the modern conveniences while retaining the traditional charm and personality of Salema. Our name remains unchanged as it translates as "The Tide" - referring to the ocean that sits on our doorstep. Even our logo has been created to connect us to the sea. Above each letter, you will find the corresponding alphabetical flag of the international code of visual signs that facilitates communication between naval stations. Our accommodation is spread over three floors. There are 9 unique units, each named after famous beaches, places and caves of our area. With four en-suite rooms, two studios and three apartments. The four en-suite rooms offer either twin or double accommodation, all with private modern en-suite facilities. The studios can accommodate up to four and have mini kitchens, lounge areas & dining. Our three apartments have full kitchens, lounge areas and modern bathrooms. The spacious apartments are perfect for guests who enjoy a self-catering holiday. Breakfast is offered as an optional extra throughout the property. You are welcome to order our delicious breakfast hamper, which you can enjoy in the comfort of your own accommodation, or continental buffet in our dining area, perfect for those who enjoy a relaxing start to the day. A Maré is situated in the centre of Salema with access to plenty of public parking spaces. So you will always be able to find a spot, even during the busy months of summer. Once your booking is made, you'll receive information about where to park. A Maré has excellent access to all that the village has to offer, and with the beach is just a few steps away, the sound of the ocean will be your background for your entire stay!
