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.

We had a lovely week at the Villa, beautiful surroundings, tranquility and peace. The owners were very friendly and helpful and we would highly recommend anyone wanting a slice of paradise to visit.

Near perfect stay in Portugal

4 of 5
This was our first visit to Portugal and we really enjoyed it. Helder and his wife were the perfect hosts and could not do enough to help us. A couple of minor improvements would be a washing machine which could be kept in the adjacent out building and a map of how to find the villa !!
