Description

 

The La Foresteria**** resort is the hallmark of the hospitality of the Planeta family, the ambassadors of Sicily and of its fine wines and oils throughout the world.

Located on the south western coast of Sicily, in Menfi, a town between Selinunte and Agrigento, it bears resemblance with a typical village of rural homes standing on the hill to watch over the surrounding vineyards and olive groves. An enchanting site located just 4 km away from the crystal-clear sea and the beaches of fine sand of Porto Palo, which has attained 15 Blue Flags, an internationally recognized eco-label awarded to seaside resorts that meet criteria on sustainable environmental management.

A wide range of activities are available for guests. They are all designed to offer an unforgettable vacation. During the day guests can choose from tours on foot or bicycles supplied by La Foresteria, using the gym equipment in the fitness area or simply relaxing in the Turkish bath or swimming pool. Your days will be filled with tastings and cooking lessons.

By night guests can meet at the swimming pool or large hall for an aperitif. This is where the conversation gets started. You can carry on with your chat at dinner, in the large dining room. Everyone sits around...
