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

We wanted somewhere close to the airport to stay on arrival in Sicily, to relax and to facilitate a visit to Etna. Castello D'urso Somma was perfect , a very warm welcome from Santuzza a great pool to relax in fantastic grounds. The DIY nature of the breakfasts , available all day, suited us and allowed us to meet other... More

The warm welcome we received from Santuzza upon our arrival was indicative of the pleasant stay we had in her charming and most comfortable B&B. The bright and cheerful rooms were equipped with all the amenities the traveller needs. The surrounding grounds were beautifully and immaculately landscaped. The well-stocked and well-equipped pantry was a real plus. I was truly impressed... More

I spent my first night in Sicily here and although I was delayed 3 hours due to a French air traffic controller's dispute Salvo found me at the airport and delivered me back to this amazing bnb and Santuzza's brilliant service skills.Numero uno and I defy anyone to find a more comfortable bed in Sicily.Mille grazie.
