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.

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.

We are a middle aged couple who rented this property for one week in June 2016. I should say first that the owner Anna and the housekeeper Sandra were fantastically helpful when our bag containing directions and sat-nav were lost by the airline. It’s too long a story to relate here, but they both went way further than expected to help us. The house is well equipped with all we needed for our stay, everything was good quality and everything worked. There are a number of different areas in the ground to relax depending on the weather and the time of day. The pool area containing the barbecue is great, as is the pool itself. The location is great as a starting point for visits to areas of interest from mountains to coastlines. We did not see the interior of the converted barn, but we are sure that the house is more than suitable for a larger family group. We moved to a different location after our week here, but were sad that we had not booked this house for the whole fortnight. If we decide to visit this area again, this would be the first house we would want to rent. Ray Pilkington
