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.

Lovely cottage in a lovely place

5 of 5
We spent a lovely fortnight at Tree Tops. Ellen obviously cares about her visitors having a good time. The cottage is really well equipped, and spacious for 2 people. It was great having the bikes available, and they were suitable for both a woman of 5ft 3ins and a man of 5ft 10ins. The roads were quiet and if you don’t mind hills there is plenty of cycling available nearby. We ate 4 times at Flor de Fontela (but never walked there). The 6 Euro lunch was amazingly good value and one night we had the fresh sardines (and they really were fresh). We used most of the restaurants that Ellen recommended and they all lived up to expectations.

Loved the river, that you can reach after a 5 minute walk. And the sea in Ofir is nice, especially the waves and nice clean water. We all loved the hammock and the garden was beatyfull and nice to sit in the shade of the kiwi plants! And Ana and her parents were so lovely and helpfull. Thanks for letting us stay at your house!
