La Foresteria is a 14-room property on an estate owned by a prominent wine-producing family. It is close to the temples at Selinunte, and a reasonable day-trip from Agrigento, but definitely requires a car to get around. Our room was a very comfortable size, and had a lovely view over herb beds and vineyards to the sea. The restaurant has... More

An excellent place to relax and unwind in an excellent tranquil country side. The food is of a superb quality , we ate twice during our stay and had also a quick snack at the private beach. Food is complimented with excellent wine of La Planeta and delicious desserts. Breakfast is also of a good quality , the only comment... More

This is indeed a different kind of agro-tourism! The setting is magnificent. Vineyards all around and a sea view from your own bed! We spent a week there and it was just what we needed: calm, warmth, simple and quality comfort. And that is before we mention the wonderful restaurant, the winery experience a few miles away or the beach... More

This small ( approx. 10 room ) facility . It is located about 10 km from Menfi in the Planeta vinyards atop a hill with a commanding view of the vinyards, valley and the ocean. Rooms are very clean, attractively furnished and have all modern conveniences. Pool is small but adequate and dining area is on outdoor terrace with same... More

Spent two nights here as a break from a cycling trip in Sicily. Modern hotel set amongst vineyards with beautiful vistas of the Mediterranean. Food was terrific. Rooms were quiet. They have a villa on the ocean a few kilometres away with beach chairs and food. A great spot to take a break from your travels and relax.

This was the most expensive hotel we stayed in in Sicily and was not the best value for money. On the plus side, the rooms were extremely spacious and comfortable. The location is useful for exploring Agrigento and Selinunte, and the hotel offers bikes and use of a well appointed private beach. The service at the beach house was excellent... More

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...
