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 can help yourself. No cooked breakfast but very fine Sicilian pastries, breads,drinks and fruits. Pleasant staff keep all areas clear and cleaned. San Tuzza runs this family business and is very welcoming and approachable. You would need transport but there are wonderful lidos close by. Catania itself is a short drive away. Mount Etna can be seen from the Castello and of course the airport is just a short drive.

Room Tip: There is one suite available in the Castello itself, costs a little more. just ask about availability.

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 and comfortable beds, lovely bathroom. You don't stay in the actual castle, but the whole place looks wonderful. We had an incredibly relaxing last day of our holiday there. It's also only a short drive to plenty of restaurants.

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 lovely warm welcome and helping us on our arrival.

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 amenities we had no complaints.
Friendly welcome - breakfast was a bit disappointing comprising mainly standard packaged cereals and drinks. Do it yourself coffee and no fresh pasticci.
However not an expensive place to stop over and very convenient as a late arrival B&B close to the airport

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 clean communal kitchen filled with delicious treats available 24 hours. The B&B is incredibly close to the airport (6 minute by car) yet we didn't hear a plane take off or land during our stay. The beautiful oasis is located unexpectedly in the middle of an industrial zone, so you if you wish to explore the surrounding area, even for short distances, its probably best to do this by car. However, once you are inside the gates, it is such a relaxing setting with beautiful gardens and a huge pool, you may not wish to leave! :-)
