Villa on Funchal Ridge, Nr. Lagos, Algarve, Portugal 3216/AL
About John Tulloch
As a family we bought a house in Praia da Luz nearly 50 years ago. As the area got busier we moved from there in 1996 to Ancoradouro which is situated on the Funchal ridge in the hills mid way between Lagos and Praia da Luz and set in its own grounds with garden, swimming pool and tennis court.
John Tulloch purchased this Villa in 1996
Why John Tulloch chose Funchal
Ancoradouro is secluded and one of the few properties in the area with its own tennis court as well as a swimming pool. The gated grounds are secure and it is only 5 minutes away from both Lagos and Praia da Luz.

Beautiful secluded villa with stunning views
Casa Ancoradouro is a scrupulously clean spacious villa which also has a welcoming charm which shows how loved it is by the owners.
The panoramic views are spectacular and the gardens surrounding the villa are so relaxing with birdsong and colourful flowers which seem to appear daily
Francesca the maid is lovely and keeps the villa tidy by daily chores but not encroaching on your stay in the villa
In fact we found the need to go out a decision which was led by going for food or sightseeing which usually found some of our party in turn staying to enjoy life at the villa.
Could not recommended this stunning villa enough.
We had a superb time at the villa. It is spacious, clean and well equipped with almost everything you could want.
The owner and the agent there were very helpful. The maid cleans every day. The pool and tennis court are very good too with seating, loungers and shade. We had children and grandchildren with us and everyone liked it. We will definitely recommend this to anyone.
First off, the villa is beautiful, the grounds are kept beautifully and is situated in a quiet area away from town. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and always open for communication, the maid that comes to clean in the mornings is no trouble at all and tries her best to not get in the way. Lagos itself is a beautiful part of the Algarve with plenty to do during the day and at night, we will definitely be going again.
