Castello D'Urso Somma B&B
Ranked #14 of 329 Catania B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 September 2012

My wife and I have been visiting Sicily for a few years now and this is without a doubt one of our favourite places to stay.

We just returned from a 4 day stay there which was fantastic - a lovely, individually-decorated room, a huge swimming pool (perfect for relaxing) and a short drive to Catania and the airport.

The D'Urso Somma family are wonderful and charming, made us feel so welcome and were always super helpful.

We love this place and will most definitely be returning next year!

An Oasis of charm and tranquility close to Catania Airport with a fantastic pool and beautiful gardens.
Don't be alarmed by the commercial district and scrub land as you approach, inside the prperty gates everything is perfect.
We stayed one night to be close to the airport for a morning flight home and this was the perfect place, great room, helpful owner and great relaxationfor the kids before departing,

We needed a place to stay for our early morning flight out from Catania Airport. The B&B is located only a 5 minute drive from the airport in the middle of empty fields. Outside the hotel is basically a dump, but when you arrive at the gates you are transported into a palace. Giuseppe the owner met us and gave us a personal tour of the grounds. He was very friendly and courteous bringing us a bottle of cold water on a hot afternoon. We swam in the immaculate pool and slept in a clean,comfortable room. The breakfast was self-serve which was nice as we had to leave early for the airport. Giuseppe and his daughter helped us arrange a cab which was waiting for us at the gate.

A note about the location. There is nothing around the area to do or eat and it is rather ugly outside the gates. To go to the airport though it is the most convenient spot.

We stayed here for one night prior to our flight home to England. This is a very pleasant place to stay if you want to be close to the airport. The grounds and large swimming pool and pool area was first class and a complete contrast to what you saw outside of the electric gates. However, there are no restaurants or shops in the vicinity that you would want to go to and the area has a very run down feel to it. Because the hotel and grounds are so lovely it is crying out for a restaurant. The grounds alone, I am sure, would guarantee its success due to the lack of amenities nearly. Both Santuzza and her father were very helpful.

we stayed at the castello d'urso somma for a week with our baby and our toddler, and greatly enjoyed our stay! everything about the b&b surpassed our expectations. the large garden area with its 25m swimming pool is stunning - and very well kept. we were given the largest room (a large room which connects to a small one, both with their own bathrooms, no. 5), and it was perfect for our family, and spaceous, clean, quiet, beautiful. we felt at home at the b&b, and spent a lot of time by the pool which we had mostly to ourselves. we also liked making our own breakfast at whichever time we preferred, and anything used for breakfast was always immediately replaced by the friendly owners and staff. stylish setting. relaxing.
