Planeta Foresteria

Part of the Planeta wineries' long winemaking tradition, La Foresteria attracts vintners and wine lovers throughout the year to the family’s vineyards and wine cellars.

Wine-tastings, gastronomic events and hands-on cookery classes are just part of the appeal: beyond the wine and gastronomy, there are archaeological sites on your doorstep and the crystal clear sea and fine sandy beaches of the south coast of Sicily.

Meals, enjoyed at a large communal table, are the perfect introduction to Sicilian life and during the summer months, these are taken on the terrace, with sweeping views across the vineyards.

The outdoor pool is surrounded by decking with sun loungers, parasols and a bar, with views across the vineyards. There is also a small gym and Turkish bath.
