Places to Visit on Holiday in Vila Praia de Ancora, Portugal

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.

Really Lovely Property - Highly Recommended

5 of 5
We had a lovely holiday in Casa do Campo Pequeno. The owner, Maurice, and his staff (the wonderful Lina and Maria) could not have been more helpful. The property was exactly as described and Maurice went out of his way to fence off part of a terrace to keep our young kids safe from the pool (we had been worried about this but it was a great solution). The area was beautiful with lots of almost empty beches. We had a really wonderful holiday and hope to book again for 2018. Thank you!

Great. Lovely spacious apartment with 3 large bedrooms.

5 of 5
We all really enjoyed our stay here. It's a lovely spacious split house apartment with large rooms, surrounded by fruit trees. Getting in and out could be tricky with our large car with added bikes on the back but we managed to work out the best way within a couple of days. Would definitely recommend this property if a quiet holiday is wanted that's within cycling distance to the beach and active town.
