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.

The furniture and AV equipment is a little dated but comfortable, and with our own music we enjoyed our stay at the villa. Outside there is ample parking and the garden is large and very secluded with very nice pool / barbecue area. The owners are very nice and speak good english and efficiently sorted out a problem that we had during our stay. The location is good, being 10 min drive from Valenca, a lovely walled city with plenty of restaurants. The centre of Vila Nova Cerveira was also nice and only a short drive away. There are plenty of good beaches between the villa and Viana do Castelo, and it was very pleasant to walk from the villa down to the river Minho (about 1 mile). Overall we really enjoyed our stay in this area.

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).
