SP 85 - Traversa Santa Croce, 76011 Bisceglie (Barletta-Andria-Trani)
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.
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.
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).
Inform the agriturismo of any animals at the time of booking.
