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).

Not a good place to stay at all. Actually the worst during our two weeks in sicily. I don't usually write a review after so many years of traveling unless it's a good one but I feel necessary to share the experience this time. We booked through expedia first but somehow the owner canceled our booking and told us to... More

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
