The guests in Dalmatia always had a special status. People would let them eat and drink the best they had in the tavern, share their bed and warm home... so do not be surprised when you're welcomed as a long time friend at Roca's estate.
The property is located in the Velim area, 2 kilometers from the A1 motorway (Pirovac), 15 km from Sibenik, 12 kilometers from Vodice, only 10 minutes drive from Krka National Park. Maybe the sea does not strike their tavern doors, but family Roca are real Dalmatians - they love to eat and drink, and take siesta in the shade of the tavern.
