Hotel Description

The hotel is located at the heart of Positano, along the "Marina Grande" beach, right where 2000 years ago stood a majestic Roman Villa. The name "Buca di Bacco" was given by a group of artists who first discovered Positano as a vacation location. Gilbert Clavel, together with the artist Lubbers and journalist Italo Tavolato invented the "Buca di Bacco" where "Buca", ‘hole’ in Italian, referred to the cellar and "Bacco" clearly is the God of wine in mythological Greece. Over the years other artists such as Picasso and John Steinbeck stayed here.

Rooms have classic décor with traditional dark-wood furnishings and most rooms have views of the Spiaggia Grande beach and the gulf. The restaurant at the Buca Di Bacco Hotel has a sea-view terrace and specializes in Amalfi-Coast cuisine and fish dishes. Sorrento is 10 miles away, and Pompeii is a 1-hour drive from the Buca di Bacco.


The forty-seven bedrooms are all individually furnished and adorned with classic Vietri, hand-painted floor tiles and marble baths. Almost all the standard rooms have a small patio, a balcony overlooking the sea or a small garden, whereas all superior rooms have a large, sunny veranda.
