Weather in Vila Praia de Ancora, Portugal

Due to its more northerly location, the climate in the area surrounding the self catering accommodation in Vila Praia de Ancora is generally cooler than that of the more famous southern Portuguese destinations. This has perhaps in some way helped to keep the development of tourism at a slower pace. Winters are mild, and the temperature rarely drops below 8 degrees Celsius, whilst it is warm and dry between the months of May and September. The temperature during this time measure between 20 and 25 degrees, and a cooling sea breeze means it rarely gets stiflingly hot.

Paul and Dora were welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. The welcome pack was appreciated as were the castanhas and wine. It was surprisingly easy to find, though the narrow lane to the property is interesting and would have been more difficult at night. The two bed roomed unit we occupied was tastefully furnished, it was very clean, the beds and sofa very comfortable. Nice crisp cotton sheets! The location of the property feels quite remote but in reality is not, Ponte de Lima is only 15 to 20 minutes away and Ponte da Barca about same. Being so near the river is great, nice to see the occasional fish jumping for bugs and to listen to the birds. A couple of things we would have appreciated that were not provided in our unit were an outside dining table and maybe a few more glasses. However the lack of these things did not spoil our week and I would not hesitate to recommend this property.

As others have said, the pictures do not do it justice and spacious modern house and a decent sized garden with a number of mature trees that gave lovely shade. The pool is a good size for a family, room to swim and splash about. The town itself has a good large restaurant and a great pizzaria and bakery, a few shops etc, it was easy to get to using the directions. Our teenagers made full use of the internet and TV and the pool. The house was a good size for us, plenty of room to get out of one another's way if you want. We mostly chilled at the house in the day, in the pool and reading etc and then enjoying local restaurants in the evening, on the coast or inland. The owners were easy to keep in touch with and all went well. I would recommend this villa to a family
