We chose this B&B for its location near Catania airport, due to an early flight the next day. We were pleasantly surprised as we entered the gates to find the most amazing property surrounding a castle, with a huge swimming pool. There was no airport noise and the 24/7 breakfast worked well with our timetable. Thank you Santuzza for your... More

Within a few kilometres of Catania airport, this B&B is situated in a large garden site dominated by a ' 'Norman' castle and a 50m pool. The website understates the grandeur and size of the estate and the costs we very reasonable. Our room was comfortable but a very typical Italian hotel room of the seventies. Air conditioned with all... More

We booked this B&B for the last night of our honeymoon in Sicily. The wonderful family of Giuseppe and his daughter Santuzza made us feel very welcome; their home created a fantastic ending to our 10 day trip. We were greeted with a great warmth and nothing was too much trouble. The setup is great, spotless private rooms and exceptionally... More

We stayed only one night, but were very pleased. The setting is beautiful, the owner was charming and the set up was unique. We did not see any of the other guests, and enjoyed a peaceful evening on our own. But I think you should be aware that you are basically sharing a guesthouse (a really, really lovely guesthouse) with... More

Bored by local hotels I wanted to try something different. I found this B&B with TripAdvisor and it's actually the closest place to my customer in the industrial area. The structure doesn't have a reception and check-in time should be arranged before arrival in order to have someone waiting for you. Not a big issue, they are flexible. Being a... More

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
