A stunning resort located amongst the rolling hills of the Menfi Vineyard, for those in search of a holiday showcasing the best of Sicily, La Foresteria is the perfect find.
Intricately blending exquisite wine, food, sun, sea, countryside and wonderful panoramas, La Foresteria offers an individual, boutique holiday experience. Relaxation comes especially easy to visitors here, most notably in the form of the hotel’s infinity pool, which overlooks the sprawling vineyards owned by the Planeta Estate.
The most important factor at this hotel is of course, the delicious wine. Owned by the Planeta Estate for 17 generations, the vineyard produces a variety of different wines, offering tasting sessions so you can experience the very best of what Planeta has to offer. And, as good wine comes hand-in-hand with good food, you won’t be disappointed in what La Foresteria serves up. Using fresh ingredients from the island’s top producers, you’ll enjoy contemporary Sicilian cuisine, paired with superb Sicilian wine and glorious surroundings.
Not only can you sample the delicious cuisine, but the property also offers daily cooking classes with head chef Angelo Pumilia, where you can watch, or get stuck into learning how to cook traditional Sicilian recipes.
With just 14, individually decorated guest rooms, enjoying a glass of your favourite wine on your private terrace is a wonderful pastime, where you’ll catch a glimpse of the glistening ocean in the distance.
Finally, if you can tear yourself away from the splendour of the hotel grounds, you’ll discover the beach of Porto Palo just a few minutes’ drive away, where not only are there golden sands to relax upon, but it’s also a nesting site for protected loggerhead turtles. La Foresteria also offers an olive oil experience close by in Capparrina, where you can enjoy olive oil tasting and themed cooking classes amongst the impressive 98-hectare olive grove.
