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.

Places to visit on holiday in Canico, Madeira

The capital of Madeira, Funchal is just 10km from a holiday rental in Canico. The town is well worth exploring by foot, as there is a huge concentration of fascinating sites in a very small area around the old city centre. 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.

Weather in Canico, Madeira

All year round, conditions in Madeira are perfect for a holiday. Whatever time of year you visit, temperatures will almost always be between 15 & 34°C. Average temperatures in the warmest month (August) average 24°C, and remain around 20°C during January (the coldest month).

Travel to Canico, Madeira

Madeira Airport (FNC) is located just outside Funchal, and within 20 minutes of holiday accommodation in Canico. There are a range of cheap flights to Madeira available from the UK with British Airways, but for the largest range of departure points and the cheapest fares, you may have to find a connection via mainland Portugal.

Lovely villa, in private grounds with good local facilities close to hand.

5 of 5
A very spacious and well appointed property with everything provided to enable a relaxing holiday. Pool of a good size and villa well positioned and designed with privacy in mind. The local shops, bars and eateries are a 5 minute walk away. Perfect in every sense; we shall be back!

Wonderful apartment and owner!

5 of 5
Can't fault this apartment! We arrived late due to delays and the owner was waiting to meet us. She had left us lovely bowl fresh fruit, local cake and cookies and was charming. The apartment is lovely with lots of space outside to relax. The terrace is extremely private and the views are amazing. Not far from airport but far enough not to hear or see and planes. Easy to get around and the local shops cater for all needs. Madeira Island direct were brilliant and answered all questions we had. A truly relaxing holiday and great find!
