Visited here for 7 nights at the start of august. So often photos of hotels disappoint in reality but this was not amongst them. Each room had a small terrace overlooking a herb garden and the vineyards. Super pool and great food. We also had a wine tasting session during our stay. Rooms were spacious and comfortable plus since may... More

This vineyard is a great and relaxing place for people who love wine! Beautiful surroundings and really warm and welcoming staff. We, unfortunately, hadn't made a reservation and the place was full when we arrived. Although we got a great treatment and they were able to have a wine tasting for us, which btw was really good too. Next time... More

This place is the best you can aim to find in this part of Sicily. Lost in the middle of vine lands in the Menfi area, this oasis offers a great combination of beautiful and essential architecture together with excellent food (and wine of course, being Planeta one of the best - if not the top - producers of wine...

I didn't stay here, as I was lodging in a country house with friends. However, being that this is one of the few things in the area outside of the city center, my friends and I decided to stop by for a drink. WOW! The pool was jaw dropping. It was a gorgeous blue with water that ran off the... More

We arrived after a 4 hour trip from Modica at about 2pm. Check in was quick and we shown around the hotel and promptly to our room. As we had missed lunch and had commented on the fact we were hungry, the receptionist made a reservation for us down at Da Vittorio in Porto Palo which is amazing (see separate... More

Overall we really enjoyed our 3 nights at La Foresteria and would definitely recommend it to our friends. It's a beautiful spot, with outstanding views. We probably could have stayed at least another night and been very happy here. Pros - We had a brilliant room right at the end, with spectacular sea views. The room was large, clean and... More

We selected this hotel as the final part of our West Sicily tour. We wanted to stay 3 days but it was full - so book early if you visit in the summer. About a one hour drive from Palermo it is definitely worth the trip. Appearances are deceptive, and on arrival the place looked small and quite ordinary. However,... More

It's always interesting to see what other people have to say and I always look at the extreme opinions , mostly for entertainment as they usually say more about the reviewer than the reviewed. This place rates only one terrible vote from a Viennese businessman. What was he doing in Menfi on business? He proves my point. The management were... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The La Foresteria resort is the hallmark of the hospitality of the Planeta family, the ambassadors of Sicily and of its fine wines and oils throughout the world. Located on the southwestern coast of Sicily, in Menfi, a town between Selinunte and Agrigento, it bears resemblance with a typical village of rural homes standing on the hill to watch over the surrounding vineyards and olive groves. An enchanting site located just 4 km away from the crystal-clear sea and the beaches of fine sand of Porto Palo, which has attained 16 Blue Flags, an internationally recognized eco-label awarded to seaside resorts that meet criteria on sustainable environmental management. La Foresteria has 14 spacious rooms, each of which blends together a sense of essentiality and style to offer a vacation truly Mediterranean in spirit in a place of genuine beauty and superb hospitality of the Planeta family. A stay at La Foresteria means enjoying a special vacation and unique experiences: the cooking course that our chef Angelo Pumilia holds to teach you the recipes of the Planeta family and the secrets of traditional Sicilian cuisine, from Sicilian-style pasta with sardines to "true" caponata, from the superb timbale in Ricotta cheese crust to scabbardfish with herbs. Every recipe is made with local ingredients and finely matched with the best Planeta wines. While staying at La Foresteria, you can visit the wine cellar where you can taste wines matched with the dishes of "Casa Planeta". The resort also offers a wide range of services: a restaurant, a marvelous deck level swimming pool, a relaxing Turkish bath, fitness area, bicycles at your disposal for ride to explore the nearby olive groves and vineyards, guided tours to archaeological sites of Selinunte, Agrigento (Valley of Temples), and Segesta. Please refer to the calendar of events and happenings with all the available offers to choose the type of stay you prefer: wellness, sea, romantic, fine cuisine (and drinking), cultural, weekend, last-minute. ... more   less
