Three reasons why you'll love it here

- The sun-drenched countryside of the Planeta Estate
- The shimmering sea of Southern Sicily
The food, wine, sea, countryside and ancient archeological sites of Southern Sicily make the boutique hotel La Foresteria the perfect place in which to experience all the very best of the island, both past and present.
Situated in the countryside of Menfi, between the beaches of Porto Palo, the temples of Selinunte, Cave di Cusa and the vineyards of the prestigious Planeta winery, La Foresteria, is a new hotel and yet, at the same time, one which is deeply rooted in the history and customs of the land on which it has been built.
From a distance, La Foresteria appears like a small rural hamlet. Close up, the contemporary nature of the hotel's architecture is revealed, the geometric rigor and essential forms' of which represent a stylish modern interpretation of the area's traditional vernacular architecture.
Facing on to the sun-drenched Sicilian countryside, La Foresteria's 14, spacious and brightly painted bedrooms are furnished with a magical mix of geometrically patterned rugs, antiques, and ceramic tiles from the nearby towns of Burgio and Caltagirone
The rooms' contemporary rustic-chic style is made all the more appealing by the addition of the latest in audiovisual technology, including wireless internet connectivity and flat screen televisions. All rooms open out on to their own private terrace.

In La Foresteria's kitchen, the passion for the local countryside and the good food and wine produced here result in superlative Sicilian cuisine, served 'al fresco' on the terrace overlooking the vineyards or in the dining room, this latter with just one large communal table for up to 30 guests.
An entire room in the hotel is reserved for tastings of local gastronomic products and the estate's wines.
