My wife and I stayed at La Foresteria for two nights at the end of September. Everything was wonderful (although I must say it was a little difficult to find the resort the first night driving there). The wine selection was excellent, and the Santo was very knowledgeable and informative about the vineyards wine selection. Our room (#7, Lavanda) was... More

It had a small number of rooms, many with small courtyards facing the vinyard and looking out at the Sea. the courtyards were lined with boxes of herbs which unfortunately were not... More

This is an essential place to stay, whatever your destination in Sicily. Set above one of the Planeta family vineyards - they have vineyards all over Sicily - it offers complete relaxation with effortless luxury, and the most charming and welcoming staff. Cooking is of the highest order, with wines by the glass from the complete Planeta range of wines... More

We enjoyed a wonderful stay at the estate. Unfortunately we could stay only one night but we'll remember this time forever. Beautiful view and landscape, nicely furbished room each with an own little garden in front plus very friendly and obliging staff. The dinner at the hotel restaurant was absolutely amazing and delicious. We of course exepted tasty wine but... More

We recently stayed here for three nights as part of a tour of Sicily. The room was very spacious and beautifully furnished. Everything was perfect - food, wine, location, service. I really loved the house on the beach. It is about 3km away and is available for guests to use. It offers a private area of the beach with umbrellas,... More

What a lovely place to stay, it is so relaxing and away from it all yet near enough to use as a base. We loved everything about it. The rooms, the food, the wine and the views. I would recommend if you need some serious R &R.

Recently returned from this hotel which is owned by the Planeta family and opened about 5 years ago. The family moved into the wine and olive oil business in 1995 and now produce a really excellent range of wines. There is little to fault about the hotel. Beautiful views, excellent cuisine, friendly and helpful service, a good pool and a... More

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...
