Apart from being a heaven on the outskirts of Catania, it is close to the Autostrada for whoever wants to travel around Sicily's Eastern side. For us who specifically travelled to buy furniture from Ikea, this is an ideal location as it is just about 5minutes of travelling away. The best thing was that the place was relaxing. By the...

We spent four days at this beautiful property and loved every minute. The grounds were beautiful and the rooms were comfortable with convenient access to snacks and reliable wifi. The B&B is very close to the airport and the downtown. The hosts were gracious and very helpful. We look forward to going back!

Everything about this bed and breakfast is outstanding. It is located roughly 10 minutes from Catania airport on a beautiful gated property in a parklike setting; an oasis of peace and quiet outside the hustle and bustle of Catania. The facilities are spotless and impeccably maintained. Our bedroom was spacious, with comfortable beds and a lovely attached bathroom. On every... More

We traveled with friends for two weeks and didn't have enough of Catania after we dropped them off in Palermo. Why not back to Catania? Perfect. Santuzza is the Princess of the "castello", no doubt. Stayed two nights and drove in to the city. It had been 23 years since Sicily and now I will say don't fly to Palermo,... More

The surrounding area looks a little abandoned when approaching this accommodation, but don't let that put you off. The grounds are lovely, with extensive gardens at the end of the long gated drive way, leading up to the...castle. Yep, a castle. The castle is occupied by the owner's father, and you don't get to stay in it, although they were... More

It's a blessing and a curse that the Castello D'Urso Somma B&B is so close to Catania airport. A blessing because, with this fabulous B&B only 10 minutes from the terminal, there is no need to stay in a soulless Best Western or Holiday Inn when arriving late or leaving early from Sicily's east coast flight hub. The curse is... More

We chose to stay two nights near Catania airport so that we didn't have to drive at night. This was such a prime location. Beautiful castle and amazing garden and pool. The room was clean and comfortable and the kitchen was of right outside the door, which was really convenient to prepare our toddler's milk. The owner was really nice... More

My husband and I stayed at the Castello at the start and the end of our 2 week trip around Sicily. Its location is so convenient to the airport. The grounds are magnificent and the pool wonderful. Santuzza is a delightful host. She was so accommodating to our needs when our luggage went missing from an incoming flight, and it... More

This lovely oasis is an ideal place to stay if travelling in or out of Catania. We first used this B&B at the mid point of our trip to Sicily as an overnight stop to drop off the hire car and switch to a coach to Milazzo for visiting the Islands. It was such a lovely stop over that we... More
