After a very long flight from Australia, this was a fantastic place to stay. Santuzza and her family are the most wonderful hosts, with arrangements made for their lovely driver Salvo to pick us up (at a very reasonable cost) from the airport even before we left Australia. The B&B was wonderful, so comfortable and relaxing, our only regret was... More

We had an early morning flight out of Catania so, based on the reviews, I made a reservation for one night at Castello D'Urso Somma. What a wonderful place! First of all, Santuzza couldn't have been nicer. I was only sorry we didn't get to spend more time with her. Her directions to the B&B were perfect. She met us... More

I spent three wonderful days at this comfortable B & B. Santuzza went above and beyond from my initial inquiry to my departure. My cell phone wasn't working, so she provided hers so I could call my cousin who lives nearby several times. She gave lots of helpful information about the area and understood how much it meant to me... More

Stayed 1 night , but wished it could be 10! Loved everything about this place... the room, the bed, the breakfast, the layout, the commitment being green, etc. Could not use the seasonal pool, but it looked very nice. Everyone on the staff couldn't be more helpful. Would ABSOLUTELY stay here again.

Originally booked this place because we needed to be near the airport in Catania. Was difficult to find (sun sets early in November) as it located in a rather desolate area. Behind the gates it is a oasis with palm trees, an immense pool and peaceful surroundings. Owner very welcoming and helpful. Accommodation comfortable (although the pillows a bit lumpy)... More

Staying 3 days in the city of Catania and Mt. Etna area for holidays, this was the perfect place to find some rest after exciting (and sometimes exhausting) days at the east coast of Sicily. The rooms are really nice and clean, the pool simply incredible, and Santuzza and her family are always very friendly and provided us with all... More

We stayed the night before our departure from Catania. Great place with beautiful pool! The Castello is very scenic. Very convenient to the airport - less than 15 minute drive. Santuzza D'Ursa Somma will make you feel very welcome. No restaurant but self serve breakfast provided. Santuzza can recommend a very good and close trattoria for lunch or dinner.

This was the best accommodation I stayed in during many years holidaying in Italy. The beauty and tranquillity of Castello are beyond words. Francesco and Santuzza proved to be tireless and charming hosts, meeting our many demands with grace and efficiency- nothing was spared to assist us. There are many WOW factors at Castello with the beautifully maintained pool and... More
