nice and quiet appartment, central location

  • 5 of 5
Highly recommended.
The appartment is nice and spacious (for 4 people), was clean and fresh at our arrival. It has hardwood floor in the living room and bedrooms, and tiles elsewhere.
Fully furnished kitchen, fitted with every ustensil you might think of.
Mr De Nobrega's father was extremely obliging, came to the airport to meet us, provided us with some tips about Caniço's conveniences, stood by for any assistance about the appartment.
Like many others before us, we loved the (little) balcony for relaxing times in the morning or evening, with a view on the sea and the Desertas Islands. Don't dream of an unobstructed view wide open to the sea, though. The view is actually what you see on one of the pictures on the site (the one showing a street, red car, and building in at a distance).
The village had everything we could have wanted (bakery, supermarket, restaurants, ...) within easy walking distance.
However, the free wifi access on the village plazza didn't work for us, we had to find other providers (for a fee).
A note of caution, having an underground parking spot is very good, but the access, especially from/to level -2 is extremely narrow and windy. The smaller your car, the better!
We would definitely go back to the same place should we visit Madera again. We haven't used the bus system during this stay. If you have a car, the appartment is close to an entrance to the highway, which will get you anywhere on the island.
We loved the fesh tuna from the local supermarket, and had a lot of it.

Great place to escape a British winter!

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is a real home from home - extremely well-equipped, spacious, clean and easy to maintain. We stayed 8 weeks from mid-January to early March and really enjoyed life in Canico. For 2 months the temperature ranged between 18 and 22 and the occasional rain showers were generally fleeting. Residents in the apartment block were very friendly and the town has a good range of shops, restaurants, etc. We recommend La Terrasse in particular for well-presented, good value fish dishes.

The regular bus service from the end of the road is great for trips to Funchal to do the tourist trail. We can also recommend the Pride of Madeira minibus tours to see the rest of this beautiful island. The office is just around the corner from the apartment and the pick-up is from outside the door. Car-hire is expensive and Madeira's roads not for the faint-hearted but we got around easily by bus, sometimes hopping from one to another in Funchal.

It's an easy walk down the old road and a sign-posted path to the seafront in Canico de Baixo but, unless you're hoping to improve your fitness, you'll probably want to get a bus or taxi rather than face the steep climb back to Canico. Gluttons for punishment, we made life-time friends with the owner of a bar halfway back up the path. It has a huge terrace with great views of the Ilhas Desertas. The apartment balcony has the same wonderful sea and island views. It is quite small but south-facing and a real suntrap.

We also took a short bus ride from the town to Assomada church where you can pick up the levada trail. The local people guided our way and the views of the valley up there are stunning. We left our walking guidebook in the apartment so enjoy!

Thanks to Roger and his father who offered us this apartment at a great rate for a long stay. (Some friends of ours paid more for a fortnight's B & B than we paid for 2 months of spacious luxury!) Whether you're looking for just a week or two or can enjoy a leisurely winter stay in your retirement, you really can't go wrong in this great apartment in Madeira.

We really enjoyed our two week stay in the apartment. Everything was clean and tidy and just as described .The owner very kindly met us at the airport to take us to the apartment, about a 15 minutes drive. A good bonus was the secure underground parking and a lift up to the apartment, which was in a pleasant, quiet area of town. A very convenient base for moving around the island. We would certainly stay again. Highly recommended.

Tony and Carol Hindle.

Canico Apartment

  • 4 of 5
We have just spent two happy weeks in Roger's apartment which is conveniently situated in the lovely town, Canico. We have holidayed in this town many, many times and will, hopefully return again soon when we would have no hesitation in reserving this spacious, airy and well equipped apartment. We enjoyed our cup of tea sitting on the balcony in the morning sunshine and a glass of wine in the early evening and were lucky that it was warm enough to sit outside again after dinner. There are several very nice restaurants within easy walking distance, our favourite is A Lareira situated in the square where we enjoy a jug of wine outside watching Canico life, often there is a fesitval with traditional dancing and singing.The food here is excellent. If you don't want to hire a car to see the island there are tours, usually in small friendly groups with a well informed guide. The bus stop is close by with frequent buses to Funchal or down to Baxio, the sea front, where we also enjoy a drink and/or meal (excellent fish soup here) either at the restaurant far end of the promenade or at the pool side restaurant of the Four Seasons hotel. We would recommend you take a walk around the spectacular gardens of the hotel Splendida in Canico and experience the theme nights in the restaurant, we particularly enjoyed the Thai meal.

A wonderful Madeira apartment

  • 5 of 5
This apartment is very accurately described in the owner's information. We felt that it represented excellent value. We found it to be impeccably clean on arrival. The kitchen was very well equipped with a large fridge/freezer and full sized hob with oven. The furnishings and accommodation were ample for four. Everything was tastefully presented - it had the feel of a home rather than a holiday let. We experienced very little noise coming from adjacent apartments or from the road. The village of Canico is very well served with supermarkets, smaller shops and restaurants. We enjoyed sitting in the square every evening, soaking up the atmosphere of this charming community. The fact that free wifi was available in the square was an unexpected bonus. The secure assigned parking was appreciated. We hired a car so we could explore the island more easily. The proximity of the VR1 main south coast road meant that it didn't take long to reach the west of the island.

I would wholeheartedly recommend this property to anyone visiting Madeira. The contact with the owner before our stay was very helpful. If you want a relaxing stay in a very comfortable apartment, you would be well-advised to choose this one.

Lovely Apartment in Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
Me and my husband stayed in Mr & Mrs De Nobrega's apartment in October 2010. I must say we had a wonderful time in Madeira and the apartment was ideal for our requirements. Located about 10km from the airport, it was easy to find and we met Mr De Nobrega Snr at a Cafe underneath the apartment block. He gave us the keys to the apartment and showed us around. He was very helpful and told us some nice places to eat and drink in Canico. There is a lovely patisserie (very cheap) located just at the end of the street which was great as every morning we would wake up and buy the local pastries (Pastel da Nata) and have a fresh espresso...yum yum! There is also a small supermarket (Sa) at the end of the street so no need to use a car to buy your food. Canico is a lovely little village/town with a beautiful market square.There are plenty of nice restaurants and cafes for you to go to if you do not fancy cooking. There is also a great outdoor bar near the post office which you must go to. We went when karaoke was on although we didn’t sing it was very funny listening to everyone else have a go. Getting to Funchal is very simple if you do not have a car. There is a bus stop again located at the end of the street. It is very cheap (less than 2 euros) and takes you straight into Funchal…ideal for a day out. We hired a car and we really appreciated the underground car park that is provided for the apartment. Overall we would highly recommend Madeira and the apartment. We would have no hesitation in staying again. Thank you!"

Canico is a great location for those who want to get out and about to appreciate the rural beauty of Madeira. The area is excellent for hiking with many levada walks only a short drive away. The town has plenty of restaurants, bars and shops (the Canico Shopping Centre has a food hall, and a wide variety of shops). The centre has a large, shady village square, complete with fountain and aviary. It's most notable feature is its handsome Baroque church, which dominates one side of this attractive square. Two kilometres down the hillside lies the sea-level resort of Canico de Baixo, which has a seafront promenade and fringes the town's rocky beach. There are also a number of resort hotels and a diving school as well as a handful of shops, bars and restaurants.

Other Activities: snorkelling
