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

Lovely apartment with great views

5 of 5
We very much enjoyed our stay at Miguel and Teresa’s apartment. The flat has spectacular views of Funchal from the spacious balcony, which looks magical at night with all the lights. The apartment is located a few minutes walk from the largest supermarket in Funchal, and is very close to the seafront, restaurants, bus stops, and old town. It was very clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. You couldn’t wish for a better location. Miguel is an excellent host, and collected us from the airport when we arrived, and Teresa drove us back when it was time for us to leave, getting us to our flight with plenty of time to spare. We had a wonderful holiday, and are definatly planning to come back to the apartment next year. Thank you Miguel and Teresa for a great holiday. Very best wishes. Shane and Sarah
