Set in its own gated gardens,with palms and trees, Castello D'Urso Somma B&B is composed of 10 air-conditioned guestrooms, all ensuite,which feature bright, modern decor with antique Sicilian -style furnishings. Rooms, all different in size and furniture, are in groups of five, housed in 2 self contained annexes around a historic Castle, providing access to a kitchen/central breakfast room in each of the annexes that opens up onto a large patio area.

Complimentary Buffet Breakfast is provided in "your" kitchen so guests get up and help themselves when it suits them. A coffee machine,a microwave, a toaster, a kettle, complete with a fridge, will be available at all times.Housekeeping is provided everyday if guests are so kind to leave the room by 10:30 a.m.

If you like staying away from the bustle of the city, the location is very quiet and the countryside setting helps to enjoy a relaxing stay.

There is a seasonal outdoor semi- Olympic swimming pool (usually opened from the 2nd half of May/beginning of June
until the end of September although dates vary according to the local weather) surrounded by palms and complimentary on site parking.
The property does not have a restaurant or bar, but there are plenty in the centre of Catania.

A warm welcoming and a friendly hospitality, which are typical values of our tradition and culture, combined with an exquisite tranquility, are the essential features of our Bed and Breakfast.

Location & Transportation

Our area was used to be called "Paradiso degli Aranci" (Paradise of Oranges) because, thanks to its healthy sea air and strategic location, it was dedicated to mandarins and
oranges production.
The B&B is conveniently located for guests who want to spend a day at the beach or go into town for shopping . It is 300 metres from the beach, 6 min by car from Catania Fontanarossa Airport and 8 kilometres from Catania Old City Centre. Although it is within walking distance of the town and beaches, there is no footpath or pavements along the busiest section of the road, so walking is definitely not advisable.

In addition to this, we always reccommend to rent a car, first of all because our island does not provide good transportation services . Besides, our location is also very convenient for exploring most of the island, since the main motorways are a couple of minutes away from our property (Taormina 45 min; Siracusa 1h; Mount Etna 1h 1/2); consequentially, being independent with "your" car means you can travel around Catania province and beyond all day long, and then feel you are at home, once back at the property.

  DirectionsDirections from Catania Fontanarossa Airport:
A) Will you rent a car?
Before leaving your country, please visit our website and click on the map you'll find in the "contacts" page.

It will perfectly visualize our location. Besides,if you play a bit with the zoom and
direction tools, you could sketch an itinerary, based on the following explanation:

- Just out of the airport , you'll be in Via Santa Maria Goretti; turn left at the first roundabout
(with the red aeroplane).As soon as you'll pass the entrance of Auchan ( a big French supermarket,
on your right)turn right in the direction of "tutte le direzioni/asse dei servizi". You'll be now in SP70/ Via
Priolo. Once reached the very big roundabout of Via Acquicella Porto (with the Agip Gas Station visible on your left)
turn right in the direction of Lidi Playa/Viale Kennedy (there's a bowling centre at its beginning,
you can't miss it).Drive to the end of Viale Kennedy (about five kilometres in length) until a
small roundabout. Turn right in the direction of "San Giuseppe la Rena" and the property is the second gate on the right (no. 15).

If, instead, you'll have a GPS in the car , just put in longitude 15° 4'39.59"E and latitude 37°26'48.57"N.
You'll be driven directly in front of our property.

B) Will you come by taxi?

- Please , negotiate the price before you take it or ask the driver to put the taximetre on.
If you noticed he's pretending he doesn't know where our location or property is, just tell straight
we are located at the end of Viale Kennedy /Zona Lidi Playa and that he just has to drive all the
way trhough its end and turn right at the small roundabout.
