Covo Dei Saraceni

  • Member of Preferred Hotels
Set on the dramatic coastline of Italy's Amalfian Coast, the ancient town of Positano is a haven of tranquillity. The Covo Dei Saraceni is located on the shore rising up amongst the pastel-shaded houses clinging to the perpendicular cliff. The resort is within easy reach of Amalfi, which boasts one of Italy's most spectacular cathedrals, Mount Vesuvius, Pompei and the beautiful island of Capri. Naples Capodichino Airport is 65 km away (90 min). Transfers can be arranged.

Hotel Overview

Over an old fishermen's house that every so often became a haven for people from Positano - who made themselves up as Saracens to relive the legend of the predators' landing on our shores - was built the "Covo dei Saraceni" (Den of Saracens).

On a marvellous rock spike there is the ideal refuge of those who land here and wish to immerse themselves in the splendid colours of the Amalfi Coast.

Here, where the sea skims over the beaches steeped in history and memory, it is still possible to discover the most remote and authentic corners of our land. Its pastel-shaded houses clinging to the perpendicular cliff, jasmine-scented streets, olive groves and turquoise sea, guests need little persuasion to come to Positano. And if you are planning a visit, there is only one place to stay. The Covo dei Saraceni is a delightful, family-owned hotel and the only one on the beachfront. Having started life as a seafront restaurant, it has been transformed over the years into the charming hotel it is today. The restaurant is still exceptional, the view from your private balcony remains exquisitely unchanged, and the rooftop pool is an experience not to be missed.

Guests may enjoy freshly baked pastries and a delicious buffet breakfast in the Bougainville Salon on Level 1, which looks out over the sea and across to the towns nestled against the steep cliffs. A special feature of this beautiful room is the indoor lilac bougainvillea that flowers in spring/summer.

Our hotel restaurant is recognised for its quality and service. For a romantic dinner with an equally spectacular view of the gulf, Ristorante Savino on the ground floor offers seafood fresh from the sea, succulent handmade pasta dishes and delicacies made in the local traditions.
