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.

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.

Mike the owner was extremely helpful as we were staying for Christmas and the New year he told us which restaurants were open and which ones he recommended on his recommendation we had a wonderful Christmas dinner on Christmas day at the Ritz Café .The photo you see on his advert is the view from the veranda which I might add runs the whole length of the apartment. A lovely place to chill out and unwind from the stresses of every day life.

It is near all kind of shops you need. It is located in a little country near Funchal but you can easily reach the capital by frequent bus, day and night, in fact the apartment is located near a bus stop. Mr. Vicente is a good master of the house. We enjoyed our stay and would high8ly recommend this apartment. Maura Gubellini Italy

Secure locked parking under the building with lift to the apartment. Lovely place to stay, clean, very modern, tastefully, and comfortably furnished. Had all the equipment we needed. A bowl of local grown fruit, cake and biscuits where a nice welcome gift. Ana, the owner, met us with the keys and gave us useful information about the local amenities. Close to reasonably priced restaurants and food stores. Easy drive to lots of places on the island although our 1.2 Corsa struggled a bit with some of the steep hills! It did the job but we will hire something a little more powerful next time! We loved Funchal, new year fireworks were epic! Loved the toboggans and tropical gardens at Monte. Went to the natural swimming pools at Porto Moniz. We braved the 17 degree water and enjoyed our December swim in the Atlantic! The faint hearted might rather do it in the summer!! Nice place though. We also enjoyed the Sky Walk which was free. Would recommend the Central Restaurant in Canico we were only in Medeira a week and we went twice! :)
