We had dinner at La Foresteria . One of the best meals we had in the whole of Sicily. The setting of the restaurant amongst the vineyards , was superb. The quality of food , wine and service is right up there with the very best. The sommelier was really knowledgeable and had the opportunity to taste some great wines.... More

Truly the highlight of our trip to Western Sicily. The hotel is in the middle of vineyards, has an incredible infinity pool, and fantastic food. Sadly we only had one night there, but made the most of it with a short trip to their local private beach, some wine by the pool watching the sun set, a fantastic dinner with... More

My sister and I stayed here for 4 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The food was delicious and we tried a wide range of the Planeta wines and not one was disappointing with several being excellent. I found the staff were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable and very friendly. The view from the pool and the dining terrace is so... More

The hotel is set on the hill looking over sea towards Porto Palo. Most of the rooms face out towards the sea. We stayed here for our final 3 nights in Sicily.... a bit of luxury at the end. The hotel is lovely. The room we had was large with a well fitted out bathroom with a double shower (no... More

Nice, small hotel in a beautiful area with a stunning view. Fantastic place to hide for a short while and enjoy 'dolce far niente'. Rooms are a bit dated but nonetheless cosy. Quality of food is high, though portions are rather small, except for the price.

Located on a ridge in the middle of a vineyard/olive plantation, this boutique hotel offers stunning views, a dose of tranquility and great food. Only 14 guest rooms - modern and comfortable - tucked into the hillside or with leafy terraces adjoining the infinity pool - provide an intimate feel. There is a private beach club 4-5 km away that... More

We came to visit Planeta because we are fans of their wines and were planning to visit Selinunte. We were traveling with our children and my parents, so this was a multi-generational trip and Planeta had something for everyone. That evening we had friends from Palermo and Agrigento join us for a wonderful tasting dinner, paired with amazing wines. It... More

We travelled with friends who had stayed previously and were very keen to revisit - and we would happily return now we have been too. A stunning setting with great views over the vineyards towards the sea. The herb gardens are beautiful though I felt a bit awkward walking round them as they back onto rooms. We had a room... More

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

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
