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

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

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
