We weren't sure about this originally but it was recommended by our tour operator. We were not disappointed. Fantastic staff, amazing food, wine and olive oil. Not expensive for quality of food and wine but maybe a little mor expensive than some people would want to pay. Cannot recommend highly enough and we will be back.

My girlfriend and I have stayed at La Foresteria for the fourth successive summer. During the Scandinavian winters we long for our traditional break at this hotel and so again this year. And we have not been disappointed. Actually we've noticed continuous improvements and small tweaks over the years. In summary, the staff is extraordinarily kind and helpful, the restaurant... More

We are travleling around Sicily this was our 4th stop. We both loved the beautiful countryside & the peace & quiet. The hotel is very well run, delicious food and wines to match. We were only here for 3 nights & could have stayed for much longer. There is a fantastic sandy beach 10 minutes away by car. The rooms... More

We stayed for a long weekend in early July. Idea was to relax and recharge the batteries. La Foresteria is a magical place to do that. We drove from Palermo and it was easy to find. Staff at check-in - Natalia - were very helpful dealing with a minor mix-up on our booking. In fact the staff were wonderful throughout... More

Elegant boutique hotel in the North East of Sicily, not far from Palermo. Attentive, discrete service, contemporary, minimalist decor. Planeta is one of the leading vineyards in Sicily. The Cerasuolo (mix of Nero d'Avola and Frappata from Nota) is my favourite. The food is excellent and the staff pair wines excellently. Delicious cuisine. Wonderful stay at La Foresteria.

My husband and I began our honeymoon at La Foresteria. We wanted to get acquainted with Planeta wines and explore the countryside. After taking day trips to the northwest, I can safely say La Foresteria is positioned in the most beautiful area. We ate dinner at the restaurant every night (this wasn't our intent but the food/wine parings were perfect)... More

A fantastic hotel! 14 rooms, beautiful setting atop its vineyards and brilliant views, the main building is so classy but it also has a private club on the Med 3 km away. Top class guest relations - Sandro has so many suggestions. the standout is the food and wine, owned by Planeta, legandary Sicilian wine family. Outstanding restaurant and sommelier.

Our bicycle group stayed here. After a long day of climbing the mountains of Sicily, we arrived here and were stunned at the beauty of the setting. We had the pleasure of meeting Angela Planeta.

This property is owned by the large Planeta wine firm and is rather a showcase for their wines. Our room was clean, comfortable and had its own modest deck. The pool area is lovely and served as a late afternoon gathering place for guests, with a well-stocked and cheerfully-staffed bar. The restaurant turns out creative Sicilian food and provides very...

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
