Children: the works of art, antique furniture and numerous terraces make Casa Buonocore unsuitable for small children. We will happily accept children over the age of 10.

A third bed can be added in deluxe and superior rooms only.

Pet animals: Although we love animals, we are unable to accommodate them in our guest house.

Casa Buonocore is a non-smoking property. For those unable to survive without a cigarette, there's a small designated smokers' area outside, on one of the terraces.

How can I get to Casa Buonocore?
For a pleasant, stress-free journey, we always suggest clients use a private transfer service from the airport.
I'm travelling by car. Where can I park?
At 5 euro an hour, parking in Positano can be more expensive than a dinner in a Michelin-starred restaurant! Luckily for our guests, we have a special agreement with a local garage, meaning that customers staying at Casa Buonocore will be charged just 20 euro per day.

Before you leave

What should I put in my suitcase?
Positano is blessed with a typical Mediterranean climate, enjoying wonderful weather for great part of the year. It's worth noting that the temperatures do drop considerably at nighttime, so it's a good idea to take a jacket or shawl with you when you go out in the evening.
When packing, bear in mind that Positano is a "vertical" town, characterized by lots of narrow cobbled lanes and steep flights of steps - meaning the ladies can leave their high heels and tight skirts at home!
What's the dress code in the restaurants?
There's no strict dress code anywhere in Positano, a town famous for its casual chic summer fashions made in cool cotton, the highest quality linen and floating organza. High class hotel restaurants may ask that male customers wear long trousers and not shorts in the evenings.
I want to swim in the sea. Will it be warm enough?
The sea surrounding Positano is lovely and warm from mid May right through to early October.
I'm worried. How am I going to get my luggage up and down all those flights of steps?
There are 70 steps between the main carriageway and the entrance of Casa Buonocore. Let us know when you are about to arrive and we'll arrange for a porter to collect your luggage and deliver it to the guest house for you.

Getting around & about Positano

I want to explore the rest of the Amalfi Coast. What's the best way to travel?
By bus! From Casa Buonocore, it will take you just 5 minutes to walk to the bus stop from where you can catch "Sita" coaches to Sorrento, Amalfi and all the other towns dotted along the Amalfi Coast.
In the peak summer months the buses can be crowded and the roads busy so, if you want to go to Sorrento or Amalfi, we suggest you take a ferry from Spiaggia Grande.
What if I decide to rent a scooter?
A scooter is a great choice if you want to travel along the Amalfi Coast in total freedom. But not if you've never ridden one before! The roads here are narrow and full of hair pin bends and so, unless you're an experienced motorbike rider, it's probably best to take a bus or boat instead!
