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.
