Villa Roque is in a rural location in the small village of Zastolje and has plenty of privacy and areas for relaxing. The property is in the Konavle region where there are many farms - meaning it's a great place to taste homemade specialities or organise horse riding excursions. Visit the nearby famous city of Dubrovnik with numerous cultural attractions or swim from the beaches of the town of Cavtat, which is full of restaurants along the promenade.
This is a traditionally built holiday home with a large garden and is the perfect holiday choice for families or groups of friends who want to escape from everyday life. The house consists of two units with separate entrances on the terrace. It is fully equipped with modern furniture.
There is an outside dining area for twelve people and a playground for children with a swing, playhouse and slide. There is also table tennis.
The region of Konalve is an area of natural beauty and contrasts with valleys and mountains, green hills and dramatic stone. Fringed by the Konavle Mountains in the north and bordered by the Adriatic Sea in the south it reaches from the Bay of Kotor to the Peninsula or Prevlaka in the east and to the west it inclines down to the cosy coves of Obod and Cavtat.
Cavtat is on the Rat Peninsula which surrounds the well protected and accessible bay. Cavtat was an important Roman colony and it has a rich cultural and historical heritage which combines with modern day facilities, making it a fabulous choice for a holiday. The thousand year history is still seen in countless traditions which have been preserved through folklore; the distinctive traditional costumes and embroidery of the region and the way in which mankind exists in harmony with nature make this a unique and beautiful destination.
On arrival you will find homemade wine from the owners vineyard and a selection of fruit from the trees in the garden.
There is a resident cat who loves greeting our guests, he lives in the grounds of the villa and the owners ensure he is fed at all times.

Dubrovnik, in the extreme south of Croatia was proclaimed by Lord Byron to be the Pearl of the Adriatic. It really is a special place with magnificent marble streets and baroque buildings glistening in the sunshine. The main pedestrian area is lined with cafes and shops and has magnificent monuments at either end. The architecture is amazing with churches, monasteries, and museums and although Dubrovnik was badly damaged in the siege of the early 90’s, restoration has been painstaking and it is almost impossible to imagine that there was such extensive destruction. Beyond the city are the gorgeous beaches, densely wooded peninsulas and the turquoise Adriatic dotted with lush islands.
There are some great shops including many designer brands and while wandering through the streets you will hear a variety of sounds from the various street performers from Dalmatian vocal groups to chamber music and the magnificent setting of the Rectors...
Palace hosts some of the worlds greatest classical musicians which during the Summer Festival the city’s squares turn into pop-up theatre venues. There are numerous art galleries and for the more energetic some good nightclubs. The restaurants and cocktail bars mostly have amazing views, either out to sea or across the beautiful city.
Once you tire of walking the Dubrovnik cable car takes you to Mount Srd which has the most magnificent views of the city. Or you can take a boat trip and see Dubrovnik from the sea and visit some of the numerous islands. The Mljet National Park is a must for nature loves as is the island of Kor?ula, the birth place of Marco Polo. Lokrum (The Island of Love) is close to the old city, this magical place is steeped in history and legends. The cuisine is excellent with Dalmatian smoked ham, cheeses, smoked meat and stews along with pastas and local lamb.
The world's second longest wall (after the Great Wall of China) is the wall of Ston, the small town famous, among other things, for shellfish and in particular oysters. On the road to Ston is the Arcadian Trsteno Arboretum, where one of the most beautiful women of the European Renaissance, the red-haired poetess Cvijeta Zuzori? wrote her rhymes. Take a walk under the crowns of ancient trees and see your reflection in the Neptune and Nymphs Fountain. The Pelješac Peninsula is the best-known wine-growing area in the south of Croatia, where you can enjoy the typical Plavac Mali wine and truffles.
