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. This has perhaps in some way helped to keep the development of tourism at a slower pace. 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.

To the front, it has a large, well-furnished lounge/dining/kitchen (fridge, freezer, oven, hob, dishwasher, sink) area with an amazing view through a range of floor-to-ceiling glass doors across the Mino estuary to Spain. There are two comfortable bedrooms at the rear of the house with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, both with their own bathroom, and even a third bathroom/shower room. There is private parking behind the house, accessible via a remote controlled sliding gate. The house is well equipped, including air-conditioning, and the 4G WiFi works efficiently. A washing machine and iron/ironing board are in an outhouse at the side of the house, along with a clothes drying rack and a barbecue. The garden area with well-tended bushes, the large patio and the swimming pool are equally superb. The house only has one other neighbouring house to the left and is therefore quite private - there are trees behind it and open land sloping down to the right. The surrounding region is hilly, with picturesque coastline and beautiful pine forests. There are pretty coastal villages to the south of Caminha, and, south of them, the old town of Viana do Costello. The nearest supermarket is a few minutes' drive to the east of Seixas and there are some excellent restaurants, and a beautiful sandy beach in the small town of Caminha, a few minutes' drive to the west. There are also good restaurants and a supermarket in the small Spanish town on the other side of the estuary, accessible via a €4 car ferry from Caminha, or a bridge to the east of Seixas. (Supermarket and petrol/diesel prices are lower in Spain!) There is a petrol station and are some cafes and small shops in the village of Seixas, and even a train service from Seixas to Porto. The house is about an hour's drive via motorways from Porto airport. The owners are sincere, friendly, kind people and very accommodating to their guests. My partner and I hope to return here again.
