As other reveiwers have stated the approach to this fantastic B & B is not the best. However, once you drive off the road & into the grounds it is astounding what you find. The welcome that we had from Santuzza was amazing & she is so helpful & approachable. The room we had overlooked the massive pool & the...

This was a real suprise as what is within the grounds is certainly not given away by the surrounding location. A beautiful room with fantastic 'help yourself' communal kitchen and supplies. The accomodation is newly bulit in the lovely grounds with swimming pool. The welcome was warm friendly and helpful and its just 10 mins (max) drive to Catania airport...

The Castello D'Urso Somma is an oasis of tranquility and beauty. The grounds are exceptional and beautifully tended with luscious tropical plants such as banana trees and many varieties of palm. The central feature is a 50m pool surrounded by canopied seating areas to relax and enjoy a cooling drink. There is a 24/7 cafe/kitchen area available from which you...

Stayed here for one night before flying out from Catania. Just 5 minutes from the airport- really. The area is a bit grotty, but once inside it's a wonderful oasis, completed secluded and surrounded by lush vegetation. Huge swimming pool, which we had all to ourselves. Help yourself to breakfast which was fine, but not spectacular. Very welcoming hosts. Wifi...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...
