About Uche Nwokolo

Busy professional couple and their 2 children (in their twenties) who live in the UK and try to get to the villa as often as possible. We now have a network of friends that also own villas in the area.

Uche Nwokolo purchased this villa in 2007

Why Uche Nwokolo chose Almancil

We have been to many holiday destinations but settled in the Algarvian Golden Triangle. Its warm pleasant climate and closeness to the sea is a great attraction. The local people are very nice and the restaurants are good value. None of us are golfers but I am told that it is a golfer's paradise. Numerous other activities including water sports, horse riding etc. Varandas do Lago is a new estate with mostly large villas all well finished. The beach is a 20 minute walk. Vilamoura and Albufeira can be reached in 20 minutes by car. The market in Quarteira is a favourite haunt for the ladies. Quinta do Lagos and Vale do Lobo are close by and the town of Almancil and Loule are also within easy driving distance. There is also good shopping at Faro which is a 20 minute drive.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is a 20 minute drive from Faro airport. It is located in Varandas do lago a quiet resort with access to numerous restaurants. Our south facing swimming pool is 10 metres long and can be heated all year round. The villa has central air-conditioning, very useful in the hot Summer months. Sunshine streams into the villa all day. The villa is decorated in a traditional Mediterranean style with much space and little clutter.
