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.

                                                                                                      4 of 5

The apartment is ideal for a family of 4 (providing the children are above toddler age due to the steps and the balcony), with easy parking and a great little bakery/cafe over the road for delicious bread and cakes. The living area is spacious, nicely furnished and spotlessly clean. Bergen has very helpfully provided lots of beach equipment which was much appreciated as the wind breaks and umbrellas are essential for a day on the beach. It was just what we wanted for a week's stay on the coast.

The property is beautiful, big garden, lot of space, good size swimming pool, the neighbours are pretty far away so this place is ideal to relax. Rachel is a lovely host, kind and helpful.
