I've never stayed in a place like this ever before- it is so COOL! What a great find and the reviews are true- it REALLY is a "unique place", "magical oasis" and "hidden gem", as everyone is calling it. We traveled in a group of 6 and we were all situated together in one stand-alone guest house (there are a... More

Since we were flying from Catania and unsure of driving directions, I decided to stay in Catania the night before our departure. My primary requirement was proximity to the airport. Castello D'Urso looked like it might be cute, but I wasn't too concerned. The area you drive through to get there is industrial and I thought for sure it would... More

We stayed at Castello d’Urso Somma when arriving at the airport and again the night before flying back. The accommodation is in new buildings arranged around the estate of the beautiful castle, and guests have access to the 25m swimming pool and beautifully maintained grounds. The B&B is very near the airport, with the only drawback the fact that there... More

I decided to come here after checking TripAdvisor. The surrounding industrial area of Catania does not make you smile at all but once the gate open......a little paradise! Beautiful loan with nice trees. Santuzza is very helpful and the room is very big. The place is clean and the common room is good for a family. Some suggestion: some shampoo... More

Very tardy review, since my visit was in Spring 2014. I was in Sicily participating in a bird watching tour but stayed after it finished for more exploration. Unfortunately, I had become ill on the tour, and by the time I arrived back to Catania to take my flight the next morning, I was very weak (I found out later... More

Stayed here for 2 nights to be close to the airport for an early flight home. Stunning setting, the castle and its grounds are superb, the pool is huge, and we were the only people around during our stay. The room was OK, the breakfast was self-service coffee, juice, fruit, toast and lots of cakes in packets. Fresh bread would... More

WE chose this B&B because the airport of Catania is very near but we should stay longer, it is a very romantic setting with fantastic pool where you feel like at home, the castello is very well located to discover a part of Sicily, and is also very near to sandy beach with a few very good restaurants, thanks to...

A very warm welcome by the charming host, who also provided us with dinner al fresco outside our room, and a magnificent swimming pool which was clean and warm and surrounded by palm trees and shaded seating. Unfortunately can't give more than 3 stars as the bed was unbelievably hard and needs replacing, and the shower was broken.

Great place, superb swimmingpool and very pleasant owner. Ideal to combine hectische Catania with relaxing stay closeby. We booked this to be close to AirPort, which is the case. However, no disturbing noise frontje airplanes. Wife terrain, including tenniscourt (under repair this time bit soon available again).
