Located in the center of a region rich in archaeological sites, in the countryside near Menfi, La Foresteria is the perfect place to experience sun-kissed Sicily and its traditions. This superb boutique hotel is owned and managed by the Planeta family, creators of some of Sicily's best-known (and best) wines. It boasts views across rolling vineyards to the sea, stylish rooms, a great pool, fragrant herb gardens and a professional kitchen in which guests may observe or assist in the preparation of fresh, local cuisine.
The 14 charming guestrooms, spacious and brightly painted in warm, Mediterranean colors, reflect a contemporary rustic-chic style. Every room is decorated with antique furniture, geometrically patterned carpets and yellow and blue ceramic tiles from nearby Burgio and Caltagirone. They all have a private terrace and the Classic rooms boast King-size beds, while Deluxe and Superior rooms each have two French beds.
The Planeta family's passion for local products, food and wine is evident in the hotel's restaurant. Here, dishes are prepared with a unique and distinctive approach that exalts the flavors of Sicily. Meals are served in the dining room, at a large communal table for up to thirty guests, or al fresco on the terrace overlooking the vineyards.
A panoramic swimming pool, with views on the vineyards, is the perfect place for hours of complete relaxation. Guests may also use a reserved lido on the Porto Palo beachfront. An airy room dedicated to tastings of local gastronomic products and wines, and a large, professional teaching kitchen used for cooking lessons completes the offer.
