La Foresteria

Surroundings: Erice, Trapani, Segesta, Selinunte


Situated in the countryside of Porto Palo di Menfi on the southwest coast of Sicily stands the superb new winery relais of the Planeta family – La Foresteria.

Home to world famous wines, La Foresteria is located between Sciacca and the archaeological park of Selinunte, where the beaches are amongst Sicily’s most beautiful and the countryside is given over to vineyards and olive production.
Getting to La Foresteria might be a little tricky.  When exiting A29 Palermo-Mazara, road signs are poor and you might think that you’re in the middle of nowhere.  Soon, though, you’ll find that you’re somewhere very special.
La Foresteria’s contemporary building, with its rigorous and essential exterior style, contrasts greatly with the gentle slopes of the vineyards belonging to the Planetas and surrounding the relais. Those rows of vines, extending as far as the eye can see, hold a perfect balance of Mediterranean flavours, Sicilian traditions and local aromas.
In the heart of one of the still hidden corners of Sicily, La Foresteria offers a stylish atmosphere, a great infinity pool and a superb open, professional kitchen. In the dining room you can enjoy a view of the fragrant herb garden and the vineyards, then be seated at a large and convivial table shared by other guests, immediately drawing you into La Foresteria’s friendly atmosphere. Here, you can experience a gourmet holiday where you’ll sip fabulous wines while dining on local cuisine in the usual Sicilian way.  In Sicily, eating is a pleasure for the body and the spirit.

The Property

La Foresteria offers 14 spacious en-suite rooms (Classic rooms, Superior rooms and Deluxe rooms), each with its own private terrace area overlooking the vineyards or the fragrant herb gardens. Every room is unique, decorated in warm Mediterranean style with many colour schemes, antique furniture from various periods, walls coloured with pastel tints, geometrically patterned carpets sprinkled with red and ochre detail, and hand-made ceramics of yellow and blue from nearby Burgio and Caltagirone. The Deluxe and the Superior rooms each have two French beds while the Classics have King-sized beds. Common areas include a large living area, a pool, a small fitness center with a Turkish bath, and aromatic gardens featuring a wide variety of plants and herbs. Guests may take a walk amidst the surrounding vineyards or use a reserved lido on the Porto Palo beachfront. The restaurant offers delicious meals, accompanied by Planeta's excellent wines as well as a rich wine list from all over Italy. Throughout the year cuisine classes and gastronomic events are organised, and guests are welcome to take part, whether in the kitchen or at wine or olive oil tastings.

The Area

Day trips from La Foresteria include the beach at Porto Palo, Sciacca, the archaeological park of Selinunte, Mazara del Vallo, a vibrant fishing port with an Arab-style Casbah and an interesting Museum with the beautiful "Dancing Satyr" Greek statue. About a 90-minute drive away you can find the historic Marsala, the downtown area lined with wineries where you can taste the homonym dessert wine, the island of Mozia, the archaeological park of Segesta and the medieval town of Erice.
