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.

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.

An excellent 1st class holiday

5 of 5
We arrived to our beautiful villa welcomed by Jose, who had gone the extra mile by providing some little surprises , ( I won't spoil it for others who stay as it is Jose attention to detail that make the holiday, mean that little bit more special) We adored the whole Portuguese experience very much and as others have said, Jose goes out of his way to make your stay comfortable. The big plus for us was the gorgeous sunshine. We would love to visit again in the near future, Gary and Chrissy Williams

Comfortable apartment in a very appealing, small resort

5 of 5
9 nights at the end of September, two adults. The flat was exactly as described, everything worked, and it met our expectations in all respects. The location is very convenient for the town centre and seafront, and also for the excellent Continente supermarket in the other direction (about 500 meters).
