About Mr and Mrs Lynch

We (Tony and Debbie Lynch) have travelled to the Algarve for over twenty years and loved the blue skies and laid back lifestyle from the first time we visited.

The recently constructed (2010) Casa Maio has been a labour of love and we have enjoyed designing and the process of building the villa working closely with both the Architect and the Builder.

Debbie particularly enjoyed the time spent furnishing Casa Maio.

We hope you enjoy the Algarve and Casa Maio as much as we do.

Please contact us if you require any further information regarding Casa Maio.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The greatest villa we ever stayed in. Fabulous pool. Thankyou for giving us such a great holiday - Kevin, Dolly & Children (April 2011)

Had a fabulous holidaythanks so much. Villa is definitely the loveliest we have ever stayed in. Kids had a ball too. - David, Coleen & Children (July 2011)

Wow! We've had the most relaxing time. The attention to detail in this villa is second to none. Well done you two - we hope to be back very soon - Dave & Debbie (Sept 2011)

It is very clear that no expense has been spared in the construction, decor, furnishings and general fixtures and fittings of your villa. It ws also great to stay in a villa were the pictures on the website do actually reflect the property you have rented and do not have a rose tinted view applied. We do think your villa in reality surpassed the photographs shown on Owners Direct. We all very much felt that this was 'home' filled with love and not a 'holiday let'. - Vicki & Friends (Sept 2011)

Beautiful Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous villa with high quality furnishings - was a pleasure to stay in! Had a wonderful two week break in Casa Maio with family, the villa is within easy walking distance of Carvoeiro centre, where there is an abundance of restaurants to choose from - our favourite was A'Gale.

Communication from Tony, cleaning service by Helena and grounds maintenance by Rolf & his team all first class.

I would highly recommend this villa, you will not be disappointed!

Simply stunning!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in September after a recommendation from a family member...so glad we booked it, the property is absolutely stunning throughout, everything done to a very high standard...

Well equipped for all your holiday needs

We especially loved the terrace where we spent a lot of time with our 2 year old girl as it was well shaded and cooler than the pool area

Lovely area, not too commercialised, seems like more authentic Portugal, found a gem of a restaurant on the last night, via italia

Tony very helpful, thank you once again for everything!!

Our second stay here, which should give an idea of how we rate this fabulous villa. Everything, from booking with Tony & Debbie, directions, cleaning by Helena and her team, to external gardening, pool cleaning and maintenance by Rolf and his team is excellent. Try this villa, you'll love it!!

Unbeatable Villa

  • 5 of 5

A second year visit to this superb villa. The design, fixtures, facilities and equipment are of the highest standard, with an obvious attention to detail. Recommend Ele and Ela in Caroviero for excellent value and friendly service and L'Orange within walking distance for a special meal. Perfect for three couples as there was loads of space. Didn't use the lounge or put the TV on!

Cleanliness was superb thanks to Helena & team and we had everything we could wish for. Highly recommended.

Just returned from a glorious 2 weeks at CASA MAIO. I was extremely impressed by the design of the villa which was very spacious and the furniture and fittings were to a very high standard. Everything was all spotlessly clean. The views were lovely and the location of the villa excellent. No need for a car as plenty of restaurants and bars in walking distance and only a 20 to 25min stroll down to Carveiro centre. There is nothing I can report as a downside to the villa and as such I will be returning to this villa in 2015. Finally the owner Tony was very helpful in the build up to the trip and was available everyday during the stay if needed which is always nice to know. Best villa I have ever experienced!!

Sorry it's taken so long to write this review, but this is not due to any issues with the villa!! The villa really is of excellent quality with very high specification finishes - definitely 5 star. The pool and bbq area are great. Tony and Debbie were very helpful with any questions we had, and to have gardeners/pool cleaners and maids during the holiday was a welcome addition to our holiday. All in all, we had a fabulous holiday, and have no qualms in recommending this villa to anyone.
