This B&B is excellent; the house and the garden are beautiful, the rooms very comfortable and clean. The hosts, Erminia and Alfio, are more than welcoming. They took the time to explain us all we needed, we feel that they are doing this with their hearts, as if they would welcome friends or family. The last day, I was sick...

Very good "at home" atmosphere and welcoming hosts. We found the clean room and good breakfast every morning. On the last day, special solid breakfast was prepared for us before a long trip. Really, like I was visiting my cousin after a long time! There are good places to have nice dinner in walking distance from the villa. Good location...

I have just recently returned from spending 4 nights at villa ortensia. the owners of the B&B were so welcoming and friendly. they constantly went out of their way to help me and other guests. it felt like a home away from home, even Bruno the dog deserves a mention. Lovely place and lovely people.

Villa Ortensia B&B was one great choice in our last trip to Italy. It is well located, has very comfortable accommodation and an excellent service. Rich breakfast with a wide variety of fruits and cakes. Rosaria is a perfect host and she kindly gave us many tips to visit places (and to eat well) around Catania.
