About La Foresteria Planeta Estate

La Foresteria Planeta Estate is a family-run wine resort in a prime location among the hills and vineyards of Menfi, on the southwestern coast of Sicily. With only 14 guest rooms, it’s the ideal place to experience the slow rhythms of the island, its flavours and traditions.
The hotel’s gardens are punctuated by secluded corners where guests can hide to reconnect with nature, surrounded by aromatic herbs, beautiful bird songs and a sparkling blue sea in the background.
Days at La Foresteria start with a hearty buffet breakfast in the garden, with fragrant cakes straight out of the oven, fruits and flavorful Sicilian cheeses. Then the in-house restaurant serves Sicilian dishes with a modern twist, paired with the excellent wines produced locally. On sunny days guests can dine on the panoramic terrace, shaded by the wisteria. Afterwards, the honesty bar in the drawing-room is the prime spot to linger over fine spirits while enjoying delightful evening conversations. And to counteract any over-indulgence, there’s a gym equipped with training machines and a Turkish bath. 
The hotel organizes wine tastings and cooking classes and there are also some awesome paths snaking through the surrounding hills to be enjoyed either on foot or mountain bike.  For those reluctant to move a muscle, the hotel’s infinity pool among vineyards and olive trees provides a relaxing and revitalizing experience. Alternatively, guests can sink their toes in the soft sand at the hotel’s private beach, which is just five minutes from the resort and boasts a crystal-clear sea that has been awarded a Blue Flag for the past 22 years.
