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

This is really a magical resort, location wise, service wise, comfort wise, food and - of course - wine wise. We sent four nights here in one of their superior rooms and didn't want to leave. There is a strong emphasis on their cooking (with famed in-house chef and cooking lessons) and on their wine, but there didn't seem to... More

We spent two nights at La Foresteria on a 12-day trip around Sicily. Planeta was the first good Sicilian wine I ever drank, so it seemed like a good idea to include this as the one winery hotel on our tour. The hotel itself is situated halfway up a hill, surrounded by vineyards, with a pleasant view down to the... More

Came here on a wine trip organised by my employers. Only a short stay unfortunately but overwhelmed by the beauty of this place. The views are stunning. Lovely boutique hotel. Rooms are really well presented and the comfiest bed I've ever slept in! The food and wine superb and staff so friendly and attentive. I didn't want to leave! Would... More

We stayed a couple of nights here on an end of season holiday. Loved the décor and the peaceful environment. and I would recommend it as a place to relax and recharge your batteries. Our room was beautifully furnished, with a simple private terrace to sit out on and look at the garden and sea view - the chairs weren't... More

I traveled with a group of friends to La Foresteria in October and was blown away by the place. Everything was outstanding; the room (#8), the food (amazing and we were even treated to a demonstration by the chef); the service (everyone was efficient but still friendly and relaxed); the wine (simply incredible Planeta wines); and most of all the...

We had a lovely 4 night stay in this wonderful oasis. The view from our room was fantastic. . .over the vineyards to the surrounding hills and the Mediterrean Sea. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were filled with tempting treats, and the tables were on an open terrace with the same lovely views... More

I took a group of 16 friends and fellow oenophiles to stay at Foresteria for three nights last weekend. As soon as one arrives you realise this is going to be somewhere quite exceptional! Surrounded by olive groves and Fiano grapes with an outstanding view down to the sea, the hotel perfectly complements the Planeta philosophy as reflected in their... More
