The Restaurant and the Beach, Cooking classes and Wine tastings, these are our experiences to be shared.

Our hospitality is made up of paths to explore and experiences to share.  We wish to offer some new and exclusive Planeta-style opportunities not only to the travellers who choose Sicily as their destination and La Foresteria as their place to stay, but also for those visiting the island who wish to experience events able to link identity with the landscape.
To this end we open our doors to non-resident guests at any and all times of the day, from breakfast to dinner, passing through cooking classes and wine tastings


A sumptuous buffet welcomes you before your arrival in the Garden Room.  A different way to begin a splendid day gathering energy while immersed in the colours and scents of the Garden of Aromas, enjoying our wide menu of local products and newly-baked items from our kitchen.


The tranquillity of a pine wood behind the dunes and a beach awarded the Bandiera Blu for decades, the Lido Fiori.  You can lunch or have a simple snack, and between swims you can sip a glass of wine while you leaf through your book . . .


We have chosen one of our garden rooms for a moment of relaxation and discovery, beginning from the only way in which the passing of time can be observed.

Thus the coffee and tea room, where you will discover our refined selections.


An extension of Planeta’s kitchen and the landscape.  Come and discover the dishes offered for lunch or dinner and the unpublished tasting menus prepared by Chef Angelo Pumilia.  This is a process in continuous renewal, retaining within it the precious secrets of our ancient family history.


Admiring the sunset from the terrace or beside the swimming pool is one of the most delightful times to enjoy the view from La Foresteria.  A glass of wine or a cocktail with selected spirits and garden herbs to complete the pairing with a chosen menu.


We open the doors of the kitchen to share the exciting experience of the new cooking classes. 

Themed lessons revealing how ancient and contemporary ideas can be combined in the kitchen with unexpected harmony.  Small insights into taste lead by Chef Angelo Pumilia.


We await you in our tasting room for a guided tour through Planeta wines.  We will create it together according to your level of knowledge and your curiosity, leading you to achieve an ideal tour of Sicily through terroir and grape variety.


We have developed our visitor experience at the Ulmo estate, as at that of Noto and on Etna, as an actual collection of encounters based on each territory and for every guest, and linked to the uniqueness of the wines and the beauty of the countryside.


Our Chef Angelo Pumulia has created 3 tasting menus for home delivery for anyone living in or coming on holiday to Menfi, even if not staying at La Foresteria.  We have also planned a wine pairing for every menu!
