This is an amazing hotel set in the midst of a vineyard with views over rolling countriside to the sea. A real plus is the beach villa that guests can use - right on the beach but shaded by trees with changing and showering facilities, sun loungers, simple lunches, massages and of course the vineyard wines. The beach is sandy... More

This was the third place we stayed on our 14 day fly drive through Sicily and we enjoyed our 4 nights here. The hotel is surrounded by vineyards and the views from the rooms and public areas are delightful. It is remote, as you would expect, so a car is essential but that is what is so great about La...

Great food and wine and friendly atmosphere - unpretentious quality hotel. Our sons had superb ground floor room with lavender and vineyard views - we were close to the lovely pool. V good value for what you get. Close to Palermo but in the less busy south west with its own v cute beach house by beautiful sandy Coast.

The estate is owned and managed by the Planeta family which owns serevral wineries and olive plantations in Sicily. The estate is situated in the middle of vineyards / the middle of nowhere. In that sense it is an Agrotourismo but it really is a 4*+ hotel. The estate feels more like a motel: a central building with reception and... More

This was our 3rd visit to La Foresteria and we were not disappointed. The setting is lovely, our room by the pool was spacious, comfortable and quiet and breakfasts and dinners were great. On previous visits we had just been given a set menu for dinner but the hotel now offers a la carte too, so there is a lot... More

We stayed 3 nights in this surprisingly quiet and calm setting. From the road it looks somewhat unimpressive but on arrival the setting is just right. Amidst the vineyards with the sea in the distance it was a classy atmosphere. The food was excellent and you have to both try and buy the olive oil. The staff were great -... More

Surrounded by lush green vineyards and an herb garden, this inn is a great place to stay if you are exploring this area of Sicily. I recently stayed for two nights & wish I could have stayed longer. Room was lovely -- rustic and spacious, with doors that opened onto a terrace overlooking the vineyard. Bathroom was modern & the... More

We enjoyed our stay in nearly every respect, and this is the perfect retreat after a long day's sightseeing in Western Sicily. However, given the fact that there are only 14 rooms, we found it inexplicable that we were constantly asked our room number at breakfast and dinner, which made the service seem rather less personal than we would have...

The Foresteria is situated on a nice spot overlooking the soft landscape and the sea. Very quiet with only 12 rooms it offers a private atmosphere and is great for relaxing and discovering the landscape around. Rooms are spatious and well designed but not too fancy, just comfortable and no-nonsense. The dinner in the restaurant offers a great experience of... More

We stayed at La Foresteria with our two teenage children during a March trip around Sicily. We met some friends and the hotel had us in three rooms next to each other with our garden terraces side by side. The rooms are named after all the lovely herbs that are planted right outside your terrace door. I found the decor... More
