The TangoSafari base is the beautiful seminar center "Centro d'Ompio" in Piedmont, located directly on the Lago d'Orta (about 50 km north of Milan).

The Centro d'Ompio is like a green oasis in the mountains with a direct view of the Lago d`Orta. We have several dance halls with wooden floors, a bodywork dome. an outdoor dancing tent, a large terrace with a huge pool, a fireplace, wide meadows, waterfalls in the immediate vicinity and delicious food - the ideal environment for a varied and exciting safari of the senses with lots of Tango.

Map of the area

Übersichtsplan der gesamten Anlage (zum Vergrößern bitte klicken) / Map of the whole area (click to increase)Übersichtsplan Haupthaus / Map MainhouseThe facility is divided into two main areas:

On the one hand the main house with some rooms, the dance pavilion & bodywork dome, the dining area, the large terrace with pool and dance tent as well as the massage dome, some areas for campers and the dorm. The Tango Workshops and the big Milonga every evening take place in the dance pavilion. On the outdoor dance floor at the pool we meet for the daily Milonga Aperitivo.

The second large building complex is the "Casa Felicina" about 10-15 minutes walk away below the main house. There are further rooms with a simpler standard as well as an additional large dance hall with anteroom for chilling and chatting.

The whole area is embedded in the green and you feel like in the jungle. We sleep in double or shared rooms, in tents or dormitory or in our own camper. Single room accommodation is only possible externally due to the limited number of rooms.
