Join us for a relaxing week at Villa La Rogaia, a beautiful country house with a large garden, swimming pool and dance studio.

The villa is in Umbria, il cuore verde di Italia (the green heart of Italy), fifteen minutes from the shores of Lake Trasimeno (near the border with Tuscany). Participants stay in individually crafted double or single rooms (shared bathroom for two bedrooms) or in holiday apartments (for two persons). The dance studio is a large, cool coverted stable with marble flooring opening onto a large patio. The villa has magnificent views over the Umbrian countryside.

To get the most from this holiday, you will have been dancing for at least a year.

With 15 hours of lessons plus lots of time to practice, the holiday is sure to make a big impact on your dancing. The week is limited to 8 couples to ensure lots of personal attention.

When you want a break from tango, La Rogaia is surrounded by the most beautiful Umbrian countryside. Lake Trasimeno is very close by. Perugia is 30 minutes away, Assisi 50 minutes, and many other tourist attractions are within easy driving distance.

What you get

The week is limited to 8 couples to ensure a maximum of personal attention.

This vacation will book out - book early to secure your place.

The weather

The average daily temperature in Western Umbria in May is 20° (day). La Rogaia is at an elevation of 480m so is a bit cooler than down by the lake, where it can get very hot.


Arrive evening Saturday 5th May; departure morning Saturday 12th May.

Classes start on Sunday and will take place over five days, with one day left completely free for site-seeing (normally Wednesday).
