Sport and relax in the heart of the Alta Murgia National Park to breathe air of freedom by walking, pedaling and riding between ancient medieval cities and endless horizons; to taste ancient dishes based on wild herbs and products at km 0; to visit jazzi, masserie and ancient artifacts, evidence of centuries of transhumance.
Participants will have the opportunity to try their hand at craft and food and wine workshops for the production of honey, pasta, baked goods and oil and for dairy processing and flour. For the most curious, an ancient basket-making workshop with olive shoots will be made. Children will be pampered during pet friendly activities with animated stories about the ancient peoples of Puglia.

I chose the accommodation Andrea – I think this is the ‘Room of the Baroness’ – at the last moment, having planned a series of visits in the area, in Ruvo di Puglia Canosa di Puglia. Andrea has been a great help for all logistics. The accommodation responded perfectly to the description we had read on Airbnb. The perfect wifi, parking in the property’s courtyard, spacious and clean room. The location and the property are absolutely extraordinary: extremely quiet surrounded by olive groves, very practical for trips we had planned in the following days. One of these goals was the Jatta museum, so I could get first-hand information about the history of this extraordinary collection, and then enjoy a ‘customized’ visit to the private part of the Palazzo Jatta Ruvo di Puglia. Given the wealth of Puglia from the historical and archaeological point of view, I definitely see again, and Parco del Conte will be just as surely the ‘base camp’ … So I would certainly recommend it!
