The climate of Alcobaça and surroundings
Choosing for Casa Cantiga holiday accommodations, you choose to enjoy your holiday mid Portugal in a moderate climate. Perhaps you know it from other holidays in Toscane, Italy or the Provence, France.
Before we got settled in Alcobaça, close to Nazaré, we discovered Portugal and Spain while we were looking for a new place to live. In this period we got ourselves experienced in the local climate!
A holiday in mid Portugal provides in the summer lovely temperatures average between 25 and 35 degrees. Directly at the sea, you always get a nice wind that takes care of some extra refreshment. So when it get´s to warm at the swimming pools of Casa Cantiga resort or holiday villa Casa da Joana, you are off to the sea!
In the spring and autumn the average temperatures are between 15-25 degrees. Perfect for an active holiday mid Portugal. The winter is more cool; 10-15 degrees. We have a lot of sun hours, even during the winter and the sun strength always feels intensive.
The moderate climate as base for your holiday mid Portugal, allows you to enjoy nice temperatures. Perfect to sun bath, perfect to relax and read a book. But certainly also still good to be more active!
Most of our guests like to have some active moments in their holiday. Hiking, mountain biking, surf, horse riding, tennis and also running some laps around the casa are popular.
Also the nature enjoys this climate. A lot of sun but still very green and with a high diversity of vegetation. If you travel further away from our region, you notice the difference!
To the north it is getting more rocky with very hot summers, cold winter, much more rain and even snow. The nature is wild, big and green.
To the south and east you will get a more continental climate, (too) hot and dry in the summer, cold and dry in the winter. The nature is more monotonous and barren (with exception of the early spring).
