The agriturismo

Once a staging post (providing accommodation and pasture for transhumant shepherds and their flocks), this old farm has been transformed into a characteristic agriturismo offering guests the chance to get up close with nature.

Surrounded by century old olive groves, the farm has 10 hectares of land through which guests can stroll and gather fruit from the trees (olives, cherries, figs, Barbary figs, “fioroni” (the first fruits from the fig tree), almonds, carobs and pomegranates). There is also a small medicinal plant garden.

The accommodation

Guest accommodation is provided in 3 apartments and one double room, each with its own bathroom:

"Lo Iazzo" is the largest apartment, also accessible to disabled guests. It has one bedroom, a double bed and sofa and a lounge with a kitchenette;
- "L'Ulivo" has a double bedroom with open fireplace, a single bedroom and a lounge with kitchenette;
- "Il Carrubo" is a double bedroom with an open fireplace and kitchenette;
- "Cerere", on the first floor, has a double bedroom with a small balcony and relaxation space, a lounge with a kitchenette, a small terrace and a little reading room with books.


The shared lounges contain books and information for tourists.

Activities and surrounding

The agriturismo is located in Bisceglie, an area of archaeological interest and beautiful landscapes, from which the prehistoric Dolmen della Chianca is accessible on foot.

Bisceglie has a beautiful historic centre with a Romanesque cathedral and church, and a winding coast with free beaches and private bathing resorts. A visit to the oil presses is recommended, where there is also an excellent restaurant.

Just a few minutes away you’ll find cities of art such as Trani, with its stunning cathedral overlooking the sea, Ruvo di Puglia, and Barletta, with its castle and the Palazzo della Marra, home to the paintings of the impressionist artist De Nittis. Castel Del Monte is just 30 minutes away.

Guests can also take part in or observe the olive harvesting (Nov-Dec) or cherry picking (May-June).

    "Hospitality, beauty and peace!"

    In the second half of August we started our holidays in Puglia, with a four day stay in the farm of Peter and Giusy. The complex of buildings (including a chapel !!), which is the Colonial Post of the Holy Cross, has been lovingly restored, yet still maintaining the charm of the past. It is surrounded by olive trees, prickly pear and other fruit trees, from which - at the invitation of the hosts - we took the fruit for our breakfasts. The farm also has beautiful open spaces where you can rest in absolute peace. I can only confirm, without dwelling, what other guests have written before me, the beauty, comfort and cleanliness of the apartments (in our case The Iazzo and Olivo) and all the local common. I wish to emphasize instead the acceptance and availability of Peter and Giusy that in addition to provide various information on the region, offer suggestions on possible visits and places to eat, have enriched us every day, farm with brief but pleasant conversation and spoiled our palates with many little surprises (even outside the Colonial!). Thank you for helping to make our first memorable holiday in Puglia! Linda (with Klaus, Bernadette and Jean-Benoit)

    "Bellisimo!"

    Tucked in the center of acres of ancient olive trees is one of Puglia's best kept secrets. My cousin Paul and I stayed at Posta Santa Croce for 9 glorious days. Peter, our host came out to rescue us When We Were hopelessly lost in a maze of streets That Are Bisceglie. From the very first handshake he was warm and welcoming. Giusy, His lovely wife and Their three charming children Also came out to greet us. They live on the property. Hearing the children's voices and seeing a wayward toy in the garden made the grounds to blackberries alive and endearing to us. A lovely mix of old and new. The rooms were simple, clean and comfortable and an amazing re-creation of the ancient structure. Quaint little towns were never more than ten minutes away. Trips to a nearby fresh market and having our own little cooking space and refrigerator made duplicating the flavors and aromas of my mother's kitchen comforting, memorable and fun. There were plenty of wonderful, affordable restaurants and eateries available nearby also.One morning Giusy's mother graciously gave us a lesson in the art of making orecchiette, a wonderful, light pasta That Both my cousin and I remembered from our childhood. What a special day! There was no restaurant on the premises but the common kitchen had something wonderful and fresh awaiting us every morning. Cake, cherries, apricots right from the nearby trees, fresh herbs, delicious breads and pastries .... a new flavor every morning. We were like little children on Christmas peeking in to see what yummy treats Had Been left. Being invited to three year old Emilio's birthday party with family and friends was an honor and a joy. Thank you Giusy and Peter for all the hard work you put into restoring Posta Santa Croce, for Allowing us to be part of your family for a brief time and for the most amazing Italian adventure we could possibly ever have dreamed of.

    "Strutttura excellent, excellent reception"

    Mail Holy Cross only a few years ago it was a ruin, the restructuring took place with the utmost respect for the past. The result ... a masterpiece! We stayed for three days in the Iazzo, very spacious and comfortable, attention to detail, spotlessly clean, beautiful. Also suitable for the disabled, absent physical barriers. Children are welcome, there is a small playground and also a small house on the tree. The position allows you to reach in a short time (in addition to Bisceglie) Trani, Barletta, Molfetta, Ruvo di Puglia. We have also visited Bitetto Bitonto and in half a day. What we liked most was the welcome. Peter and Giusy hosted us like old friends, were truly exceptional. Probably that is why we plan to go back ...
