Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Canico, Madeira your home away from home

Nestled on top of a steep mountain road on the island of Madeira is the village of Canico. With stunning views over the Atlantic Ocean and a really traditional way of life, Canico is a magnificent retreat for a little relaxation. Located 10km from Funchal, Canico gives visitors a real sense of peace and quiet in the Madeira countryside, where traditions still live strong and the pace of life is slow.

Things to do on holiday in Canico, Madeira

Everything you could need for a week in the sun is found within Canico. There are a couple of little shops from which you can stock the shelves of your self catering Canico accommodation and a handful of bars and restaurants, which teem with locals. There are also walking guides available from the many of the establishments for those who would like to take advantage of Madeira’s walking capital.

Canico is known for its magnificent walking possibilities. Surrounded by a maze of routes which cross the valleys, gorges and lush, rolling hills of the Madeiran countryside, a holiday rental villa in Canico is absolutely ideal for walkers looking for a truly relaxing break in the sun. The flowers and plants in this area include some of the most rare, colourful and varied species found in the whole of Madeira, attracting many forms of wildlife too.

There are two excellent golf courses within easy distance of a holiday rental villa in Canico. The 18 hole Palheiro Golf Course and the 27 hole Santo de Serra Golf course, home of the Madeira Open, are both easily accessible and open for visitors, as long as you have a handicap certificate with you.

2km below the original village is the beach resort of Canico da Baixo, which is where the hotels in Canico, Madeira are based. Although a good proportion of the main beach belongs to the Riu Palace hotel in Canico, Madeira, there is plenty of space on which to place your towel and relax in the glorious sunshine. Water sports thrive from Canico beach, especially scuba diving. Canico is Madeira’s premium diving spot, partially due to the beautiful underwater caves which adorn this stretch of coastline. Windsurfing, waterskiing and sailing also thrive from self catering holiday rental accommodation in Canico.

With botanical gardens, a huge 15th Century Cathedral, some excellent art galleries and numerous historical monuments, it is little wonder Funchal is such a popular day trip from Canico.

Kitchen was well equipped with utensils although I brought a speed peeler with me. The wifi did not work, but I went with it to the Meo shop at the Continente Modelo supermarket and they were able to get me online. I had rented a car at the airport and the satnav brought us to the town centre and not to the house, so continue past the supermarket up the hill till the street bends to the left there is the apartment block on the left. The garage is under the house, very narrow, but you could also park outside. The car was very useful for reaching all the levadas to walk. In Canico de Baixo there is a free swimming pool at the Manta diving centre. A great place but I only discovered it on the last day. Ana's house a a good place to explore the east side of Madeira. I might come again in the future.

We have enjoyed the house greatly. The house is very well maintained, the gardens are fabulous and the view on the ocean is fantastic. Although we planned to rent a house in Funchal originally, we were very pleased with the location of Villa Da Falésia. It is in a very quiet area, but the necessary shops are nearby. A rental car is however advisable. The location was excellent for our planned trips: visits to Funchal, the laurel forests, walks on the levada’s and the Madeira wine tour. The service was excellent and we can recommend this property to anyone!

Taxi into Funchal easy and we made links with our taxi driver Sonja who was always available to drive us or pick us up. Villa large and clean a few more sun loungers for our party would have been good. Also no basic ingredients to start us off and we arrived in the evening. Restaurant Central a few miles away good food and lively atmosphere (and they collected us and drove us back to villa). Levada walks lovely. Lovely clean luxury villa superb views and in a beautiful island. Thoroughly enjoyed our holiday.
