The spectacular 27-hole Santo da Serra golf course [also known as Campo de Golfe and home to the Madeira Island Open ] is also within easy reach. This is Madeira’s oldest golf course. It sits high up on a plateau and is marvelously scenic with inspirational views back up the mountains and out over the Atlantic below.
Hiking & Walking : Garajau is a good location from where one can hike and walk the islands amazing levada irrigation system spanning 2,500 kilometres, which meander round the mountains. We recommend you use Turitrans (please, contact us for link with further information). They do trips in small groups of 8, using mini-buses.
Entertainment: Locally in Garajau there is entertainment nightly in the Don Pedro Hotel. It is worth just popping in there and picking up their program for the week, then on route from a restaurant in the evening you can pop in, if something takes your fancy, or just for a night cap.

About Connie G. Penn
I am self employed and the intention was to move to Madeira when I retired. Unexpectedly I am still working.
Connie G. Penn purchased this apartment in 1999
Why Connie G. Penn chose Canico
As a future home I needed a property that would be big enough to live in all year round, but also want to be able to lock it up and go away. Apart from the fantastic space, the main attraction is the panoramic sea views. One can see the sea from every room.
What makes this apartment unique
We absolutely love the space, the large private terrace, panoramic views of sea from every room, from both conservatories and from the south facing terrace and west facing balcony.
Guestbook comments from the manager
The apartment was very comfortable, the kitchen was wonderfully equiped and everything was pristine clean and in good working order and we enjoyed it. The pick up by Susie was very convenient and helpful. The booking process was efficient and clear.
We thoroughly enjoyed the views from the balcony. It was a wonderful base from which to start our tours around the island.
We shall certainly plan another visit!
