Castello D'Urso Somma B&B
Ranked #14 of 329 Catania B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 September 2016

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 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 availabilit...

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
