kombibild arezzo hauptseite

The focus this year will be – apart from tango, of course – on Pilates, Feldenkrais and Yoga. All of these fields support your tango in a magnificent way. Let's experience the dynamics of your body afresh and discover the world of other dances. An excellent team will join you on your journey – and provide you with an exciting programme. For details see the menu points on the left. Single dancers are most welcome – we'll make sure there's a balanced share of leaders and followers.

Lodging, catering & information about the venue

Due to the great demand in recent years, we now offer new accommodation in addition to the rooms in Villa Godiola. Hardly ten walking minutes from the Accdemia, there is Villalta – a beautiful Tuscan villa from the seventeenth century. These rooms are ideal for those who appreciate a slightly higher standard and a quiet place.

Villa Godiola – our base in Arezzo

Villa Godiola (Accademia dell arte), situated on the outskirts of Arezzo, will breathe with tango music, with children's laughter und with the aroma of Italian food. The ample building and the idyllic garden is perfect for dancing, dining and relaxing together.

Map of the area

Two dance halls, a terrace and a large garden provide space for workshops, milongas, coffee breaks, massage, sports, and individual classes and practice. Cosy two- or three-bed rooms will accommodate us. Single rooms can be booked externally. For low budget accommodation, there's also a dormitory and a camp site.


Accommodation & Food

Rooms with bathroom, dormitory, tent or camper van in Villa Godiola

You can choose from the following types of accommodation. You can sleep in your own tent or in your camper. You can sleep in the dorm (please bring your own sleeping bags and sleeping mats; we have no extra mats for the dormitory). More comfortable are the double or multi-bed rooms. (There's a limited number of about 50 beds). For more information on your options please see under prices and registration.


"Villalta" – our new option right around the corner from Villa Godiola/Accademia 

This is a first-class villa only ten minutes away from the main venue. 70 € per night and person (including meals in the Accademia and room service). All rooms are doubles, some of them with twin beds for couples only, others with two single beds. So you can register as single or couple for this category. The opening of the swimming pool is scheduled for mid-May, but we're working on a solution to use it earlier – weather permitting ;) For more details and pictures see here: www.fattoriasanfabiano.it/en/villalta.php
