We had the most relaxing stay at Hotel Monte Somao. The country setting was lovely, our room looked out onto a field with a mare and her foal, with the Atlantic ocean in the background. The room was so clean and beautifully presented, we thought it was a brand new hotel. But the owners, a most welcoming husband and wife, said it was two years old. The breakfast spread was as good as we've had in Europe, including fresh fruit and peaches, sweet pastries and other delights. The hotel was a little hard to find, up some very windy streets, but the hillside village of Samoa is a friendly one. We started to get to know some of the locals after just one night. The restaurant/gallery across the road was very good eating and a great meeting place.
