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.

The owner's daughter, Santuzza, was so warm and friendly, I am reluctant to write this review. They mean well, but miss the mark. The grounds, including the pool, are beautiful. The property is far from town, but close to the airport. That being said, it was not a comfortable stay. The castle is not where you stay. There is a... More

We stayed for 1 night before returning home. It's a pleasant place with a nice pool. Even though the airport is only 15 minutes driving, the planes did not bother us. Rooms are clean and breakfast is self service, you can take something all day long if you want. Recommended!
