- 4 nights at Bosko's ranch: the rooms are simple, yet comfortable and are all en-suite.
- 1 night at a family home: the guest rooms are bright and modern, with comfortable beds. Some of the rooms share a bathroom. The hosts make their own delicious wine and fruit liqueur, and have a wonderful garden, meaning they are almost entirely self-sufficient!
- 2 nights at a guesthouse/agriturismo, surrounded by olive groves.
The accommodation provided at the ranch and the family guesthouses is relatively basic yet comfortable, the bathrooms are shared in all accommodations with the exception of the main ranch where rooms are all en-suite.
Please note single rooms cannot be guaranteed and you must be prepared to share.
All meals are provided during the ride - you will eat well! Meals are varied, very generous, and consist of local produce. Amongst Sinj specialties you can find arambasici (minced meet with spices wrapped in sour cabbage leaf), home-reared lamb, trout of Cetina, and others.
- Breakfast: fresh bread, granola, yoghurt, cheese and ham, eggs, tea & coffee, juice
- Lunch is either a picnic lunch (a large sandwich, fruit, water or juice - tables and chairs are brought to you) or a proper meal at the ranch/guesthouse.
- Dinner is usually a salad or soup, followed by a traditional meal and dessert.
Drinks are included at the ranch and the local guesthouses.
Most dietary requests can be met but please contact us with your requirements before booking.
