Weather in Vila Praia de Ancora, Portugal

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.

A beautiful and tranquil space

5 of 5
A wonderfully restored and landscaped property in a beautiful secluded location. Jorge has created a space to truly relax whether sat on the terrace above the waterfall or lazing by the good sized pool. We can't wait to spend some further time here.

The friendliest owners I have ever met!

4 of 5
We were so impressed with the owners of this villa. They couldn't do enough for us. We were shown around their beautiful garden when we arrived and told to help ourselves to salad and vegetables. The house was spacious (although the bathrooms need an upgrade) and the setting was out of this world! The pool was large and the pool house warm and inviting.
