6-13 August 2022: Tango Holiday in Tuscany Maremma
6-13 August: Tangoholiday in Maremma, Tuscany (IT)
7 days of holiday immersed in the enchanting Maremma, all to be explored...For the 13th consecutive year
The participants will be guests in the beautiful apartments of “Le Pianore” at Monticello Amiata (Grosseto) in the heart of the Tuscan Maremma; a suggestive and welcoming place, created specifically for hosting music and dance seminars and other artistic events.
The villa will only be available to the group so there will be no externals. Surrounded by nature, it is ideal for a holiday that combines tango, experimentation, self-care and safety in accordance with the Covid 19 theme.
Whoever is looking for relaxation will find it sunbathing at the pool, tasting Tuscan specialities, strolling through the hills and vineyards, taking it easy in the countryside. And if you get "tired" of all this... you can choose among trips to villages and cities of art (Siena, Montalcino…), thermal baths (Saturnia, San Filippo), but also explore Monte Amiata or go until the wild beaches of Parco dell’Uccellina
