Our two night stay at Bianca's with Francesco and Lea was fantastic. The stay and the house was actually one of the highlights of our trip and has inspired us to better our own apartment in Shanghai. Very warm people, fantastic location, beautiful rooms and great suggestions on local eats. It's a perfect combination.

Leia and Francesco are exceptional hosts. They are so nice and accommodating. Since we were only staying one night in Catania, Leia made sure to recommend everything we should see within our short stay. She recommended some great places to see, eat, and enjoy. The best recommendation was her dinner recommendation, if you get to stay at her B&B, ask... More

We only stayed 1 night at Bianca, at the end of our trip to Sicily, but we wish we could have stayed longer as we had a lovely time.

Contacted Leia at Bianca B & B and Apartments quite early as we wanted to be sure to get a room here during our stay in Sicily. We previously had plans to visit other parts of the island but decided to spend all of our seven nights here. It proved to be a right decision in retrospect. We visited Siracusa,... More

Wow, this is a really nice apartment, with some funky stylish decor. I'm not normally such an aesthete, but this was very tasteful. The hosts were very caring and served us delicious local fruits in the morning. There is a cat and a dog who are also very pleasant.

We stayed 1 night in Catania and were a bit deceived about our stay in B&B Bianca. It is a nice location, close to the piazza del duomo, bit at the same time very busy. Although the website stipulated that breakfast would be offered at 7 am, it would only be available at 7:30 at the earliest. The card the... More

Lea and Francesco run a first rate establishment. They are somehow able to make you feel as if you have a private apartment with the most helpful neighbors ever. We had the most wonderful conversations with them. Their recommendations for restaurants (and their warnings, in one case), proved absolutely prescient. L&F have, over time, picked out a small group of... More

What should we say? If Catania has been such an incredible experience, most of the credit goes also to Lea and Francesco (and Memole and Bianca of course, two little adorable fluffy pets)!

Bianca B&B was a wonderful base for my group's stay in Eastern Sicily. Lea and Francesco were wonderful hosts. Their pets seem wonderful, but since I have allergies, I was concerned about booking with them.
