Just could not be better! The hotel is located on the vineyards of the Planeta family in the tranquil and romantic countryside of Menfi. We easily found it using GPS (driving at night) and were warmly greeted by the hotel staff. Alessandro introduced us to the Planeta family story and to their fabulous and very affordable wines, showed us our... More

We arrived here very late after 'Our Lady Air' flight and in need of winding down. Booking in was painless and quick and the hotel team had left a small snack for us in the room. A perfect start to our short stay of 4 nights. We had a room looking out towards the sea on the ground floor, so... More

Upon arrival we were in awe of the scenery! Vineyards, cactus, palm trees ... Flowers galore! Great check in - due to the ease & staff. Our room was lovely: King sized, comfy bed. Large closet with robes (2 each-lightweight cotton & flurry Terry!), slippers, beach /pool towels, safe). Large glass sliders to outdoor sitting area with great views of... More

Wonderful! It is hard to describe how much we enjoyed our time here. We spent four nights at La Foresteria at the start of our week in Sicily, chosen because of its link to Planeta wines. It is a lovely small hotel perched on the top of a hill over-looking the fiano vines out towards the sea, with fantastic food... More

Recently stayed here for only one night, but worth the trip. We ate in the restaurant that evening and it was well worth it, the food was absolutely delicious. The pool area was nice and a good place to watch the sunset with a glass in hand! Only 30 mins from the ruins at Selinute which I would also recommend... More

The hotel and restaurant are beyond superb ! The Estate produces 25 amazing wines, and Chef Angelo is a modern master of the local cuisine. He updates and honors traditional dishes, and presents them beautifully. The staff is very knowledgable, friendly, and efficient. Angelo also offers cooking classes on advance request, and is a very engaging teacher. Make a trip... More

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
