La Foresteria Planeta Estate is nestled in the heart of the Sicilian countryside, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. Located in the south west of the island, you can enjoy both the rugged beauty of the mainland and the crystal clear waters of the coast.
Each of the 14 rooms is named after one of the herbs grown in the garden; fling open your windows and enjoy the aromas drifting in on the breeze. The décor is inspired by the natural surroundings and a mix of antiques and bright textiles add plenty of character.
The surrounding countryside is typically Italian and you can enjoy the panoramic views from the infinity pool. Close to the hotel are the hills of Capparrina, home to their very own 98-hectare olive grove. A visit is recommended particularly during the harvesting and milling season when the new oil is ready for tasting.
The Planeta are a winemaking family with a 500-year history of farming in Sicily. Wine tasting is the perfect way to get an insight into their rich history, so enjoy a glass on the terrace while watching the sun set. With great wine comes great food and the hotel’s chef, Angelo Pumilia, is truly passionate about Sicilian cuisine, adding his own touch to age-old recipes and making use of the island’s natural larder.
You’re situated just 4km from Porto Palo Menfi, home to some of the island’s most beautiful beaches. If you’re lucky, you might experience the annual hatching of the Caretta Caretta sea turtles who return to the beach to lay their eggs. There are plenty of cycle paths and nature trails for exploring the island and you’re in close proximity to the Valley of Temples in Agrigento and the Salt Road of Mozia.
Whatever you want your luxury tour or safari itinerary to include, we’ll create something fully bespoke for you… and only you.
