Having thought we'd booked into your typical airport B&B we were very happy to find that the Castello d'Urso Somma was a small Italian manor, in large grounds, near the sea, with no airport noise (despite being only a couple of minutes from the terminal). Our room was in a purpose-built annex. It was large, with a very comfortable bed....

We wanted a relaxing and no stress last day stop before heading home the following day. We didn’t want to have to travel through Catania on the last morning – too stressful! We thought we would arrive around lunchtime at the B&B and then head out for the day. When we arrived we were astonished by the property and grounds....

We arrived from our late flight at Catania to the B&B, to be greeted with kindness and an offer to order and pick up pizza for our hungry family. The accommodation was clean and the breakfast also very good. We were there in March so we did not use the lovely pool but I think it must be fantastic in...

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 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.

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...
