Great pool, nice staff, good rooms and AMAZING food. Recommend to stay here, best meal we had our whole trip. Also- the breakfast is as nice as the dinner......... Ok beachclub- probably great if you have kids! For couples - the pool for a sundowner might be better. We will come back!

What a place. The location is fantastic, the rooms are brilliant, the staff are incredible, the infinity pool is beautiful, complete with bar in case you need a drink or a snack whilst you're out enjoying the views. Planeta wines are of course terrific but combined with the fabulous restaurant (so good we ate their two nights of the three... More

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

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
