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.
Villa Godiola - Accademia dell'Arte MFA
Via San Fabiano 9
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.
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
