The contemporary design of Canico House is a welcoming sight and offers its guests the chance for rest and recuperation in its stylish living areas and beautiful heated pool. Canico House accommodates six guests across its three chic, comfortable bedrooms, plus a further two if needed on a sofa bed in the TV room.

Located near the town of Canico, 15 minuted east of Funchal, Canico House offers easy access to the hustle and bustle of the city and calming walks along Madeira's coastline. Canico is a quiet coastal community with a beautiful promenade, black volcanic beaches and Maderia's answer to Brazil's Christ Redeemer, the Miradouro Cristo Rei do Garajau!

As you enter Canico House, you walk past the sleek, modern staircase with open steps and a glass balustrade and are welcomed into the open-plan living and dining room. This vast open space is designed with elegant white walls and warm wooden floors, and boasts large sliding doors out to the terrace along the front, allowing the natural light to flood in and brighten up the space. You are first met by the dining area, with a classic, 60s-inspired wooden set, six guests can dine in style. To the other side of the room sits a large, comfortable L-shaped sofa and accompanying armchair set around a flat-screen television that is great for watching a film or catching up on any sports fixtures.

The kitchen is separate to the rest of the living space, but the modern design continues into the room. A large central island and breakfast bar are the focus of the room, allowing guests to keep the chef of the group company as they cook up a storm. The bright white cabinets and grey worktops give the room a fresh feel, and as the kitchen is equipped with all the necessary mod-cons, there are plenty of reasons to embrace home cooking at Canico House.

As well as the main living area, there is a further TV room at Canico House. This room is a great hang-out spot for any kids in the group with its large flat-screen television and comfy L-shaped sofa, and the sofa can even be converted into a bed so two extra guests can be accommodated here if needed.

All three bedrooms at Canico House are a good-size and are designed with crisp white walls and added colour from the soft furnishings - not to mention the large sliding doors in each bedroom bringing natural light to the rooms. The first bedroom is to the rear of the villa is home to two single beds and even has a small vanity. The remaining two bedrooms sit to the front of the house and enjoy views of the surrounding area and the sea beyond. Both are home to double beds, and one even has its own en-suite bathroom for added privacy. There are also two stylish family bathrooms for the remaining bedrooms, so there is plenty of space for everyone to get ready.

Although not massive, the outside space at Canico House has all you could need to enjoy Madeira's warm climate. The private swimming pool is sure to be a hit with the whole group, and can even be heated upon request! A terrace surrounds the pool and is home to a few sun loungers, so you can easily jump into the pool after relaxing on a lounger. The terrace continues to the front of the villa, and here you will find a small lawned area and outdoor dining area. From here you can easily pop into the kitchen and grab some snacks or a drink and still be able to enjoy the wonderful views.

Situated near the town of Canico on the south-east coast of Madeira is Canico House. This modern villa offers views of the surrounding area that continue down to the sea beyond.

Guests staying at Canico House can reach Madeira's capital of Funchal is less than 15 minutes. Funchal Cathedral is one of the main historical landmarks in the city. Dating back to the 16th Century, the cathedral was built during the peak of Portuguese power and was a symbol of their power and prosperity. The Gothic altar is quite special; with gilt woodwork, small sculptures and oil painting it is simply stunning. The city's old town is always buzzing and is home to most of Funchal's shops and restaurants. With numerous restaurants serving a range of cuisines, there is something for everyone to enjoy no matter your preference. And when you need a bit of retail therapy, head to the main shopping streets of Rua do Aljube, Rua da Carreira and Rua Dr Fernao Ornelas.

Closer to the villa and in the surrounding area around Canico are a number of other activities. The Miradouro Cristo Rei do Garajau is Canico's answer to Brazil's Christ Redeemer, and at 14 metres tall overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, it really is a true wonder. Sitting below the Miradouro Cristo Rei is Praia de Garajau. This small beach with Madeira's infamous black volcanic pebbles and sand can be reached on foot or by car down a long winding road that will test your limits if you're not a fan of heights! Or for those more leisurely inclined, there is also a fun cable car taking visitors down to the beach.

Be sure to visit Pico Ruivo, Madeira's highest peak. At 1,862 metres, it is also the third highest peak in Portugal. On a clear day with beautiful blue skies, it is a wonderful day out hiking around Pico Ruivo. Along the path you will have to climb 300m from the starting point in Achada do Teixeira to reach the top, taking around an hour and a half, but when you reach the top it is definitely worth it!

Funchal is the largest city on the island of Madeira and is encapsulated by Pico Ruivo and its neighbouring mountains, which look as if they have been seamlessly carved into the skyline by a Lusitanian God.

There is no better spot to start your holiday than in the Old Town, which illustrates its personality though street art, architecture and busy local businesses. There are many fine eateries, botanical gardens, a cathedral and impressive museums. Perhaps hop on the Madeira Cable Car as one of your first activities, as this will give you a great idea of the islands size.

Many flock Funchal in order to enjoy the Atlantic Coastline. This is home to its prominent harbour, where hundreds of boats and yachts, some of which enable visitors to embark on a magical sea voyage, can be found. Funchal really is a destination for lovers of the sea; as there are renowned surfing points, as well as being a great place to spot some whales.

Madeirans are also notorious for their elaborate festivals. If you’re travelling during the New Year, you will be treated to one of the world’s biggest Firework Festivals…a dazzling sight! During late February & early Mrach, you are able to witness Carnival and the streets of Funchal are lit with parades and festivities. If that’s not enough for you; the Atlantic Festival International Fireworks Competition, Wine Festival and Christmas are all noteworthy dates for anyone visiting Funchal.

There are some incredible villas on the island and we believe that we have done a great job finding them for you. Have a browse and let us know what you think.


The island of Madeira can be found south west of mainland Portugal, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the island’s location, its is considered to have a Mediterranean climate that serves locals and visitors all year round – making it an ideal escape from reality at any point in the year.

What we love Madeira for is its seemingly ongoing festivals! Madeirans have found an excuse to celebrate most things; including film, their natural surroundings and key patron saints. This means that planning a visit during these days and even weeks of commemoration is well worth it (scroll down to see some key dates).

Madeira is divided into several municipals, each with a special offering to those who visit this island. Our favourite two communities are Funchal and Calheta and these are where you will find most of our beautiful villas.

Madeira’s landscape extends much more than a striking coastline. Make sure you pack some hiking boots and venture inland during your stay. With mountainous trails along Vereda do Arieiro, or more countryside appropriate paths like Levada do Risco and waterfall chasing treks like Levada do Caldeirao Verde – this archipelago has everything a keen outdoors person requires.

For those who enjoy either playing or watching sports, you’ll be happy to know Madeira offers so much selection. Madeira is also home to three notable football clubs, so if you’re visiting during the football season and want to see a good quality of football, you have every chance to. Porto Santo Golfe is the island’s renowned golf course. With an 18-hole course (Par 72) overlooking a Galapagos-like backdrop, golf enthusiasts will certainly want a ‘slice’ of the action! Surfers can access some great beaches like Jardim do Mar, Ponta Pequena, Paul do Mar, and Fajã da Ovelha in order to find some swell. Or, if you’re simply looking to recline on a sun lounger and soak up some rays, whilst listening to crystal clear waves break as they hit the shores, you will find plenty of man-made beaches & Lidos created for your leisure!

With a superb climate, close proximity to the coastline, wonderful cuisine, charming locals and astonishing scenery – this is a fabulous holiday choice for families & friends.

But while you're enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Madeira, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we've put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

Best Suited For: All Ages

Canico House is an excellent option for a family holiday to Madeira. The twin bedroom is great for younger kids, while any older kids will relish the chance to sleep in one of the double bedrooms. Even the smallest kids have been thought of, as a high chair and cot are available upon request so they can get a good night's rest too! The addition of a TV room, as well as the open-plan living and dining room, means that kids can have their own space to hang out and play while the adults unwind in the main living space.

The private swimming pool will bring joy to any child's face and will provide hours of splash-filled fun - and as the pool can be heated upon request, kids can play in the pool for hours on end! The sun loungers lining the pool allow the adults to relax and keep an eye on the kids in the pool while still being able to enjoy the sunshine. And the terrace and small lawned area to the front of the villa provides the chance to dine alfresco as a family and enjoy the wonderful views.

Kids will feel like pirates as they board the Santa Maria de Colombo. Modelled after Christopher Colombus's ship, this fun boat tour offers families the chance to go whale and dolphin watching (depending on the season) and jump into the sea as the ship drops anchor! Or if you would rather learn about marine life from the safety of the shore, then the Whale Museum in Canical is a great place for an afternoon out. Here visitors can learn about the mesmerising life of whales and the rather tragic role that Madeira played in the whaling industry. Although challenging, this museum plays an important role in spreading the message about why the industry was banned.

The Cable Car over Funchal offers a unique perspective over the city and is always enjoyed by children. And once you reach the top and have admired the stunning views, you can visit the Monte Gardens with its gorgeous ornamental gardens. Or if you are looking for something a bit more energetic, then head for a toboggan ride back down the hill! Guided by two men, these rides offer a faster way to fly down the mountain and certainly gets the adrenaline pumping!
