Welcome to our "Tango - feel - good - oasis"!
Fausto Carpino & Stephanie Fesneau will be teaching this week in the beautiful Ritzlerhof, our 4-star tango hotel.
The theme is: back on the tango track!
During this tango week, we will work very specifically on fine-tuning in the couple: Together with Fausto & Stephanie, we will work out the basics that are really important and that have been neglected in the last "dance-poor" months.
So: WE WILL DANCE AGAIN! The lessons focus on topics such as the embrace in the couple, the connection to each other, more quality of movement and s sense of togetherness with the music. Practilongas and our evening Milongas complement these intensive tango days to get fit again!
In addition to a lot of tango, we will enjoy spring awakening in the mountains in early May - with a view of the snow-capped peaks of the Ötztal Alps.

In the Ritzlerhof we can relax and recharge our batteries at the same time. The hotel is in a quiet, secluded location, far away from the hustle and bustle, noise and stress. A comfortably furnished house with a lot of alpine flair and honest hospitality awaits us.
Whether from the large terrace, from the indoor pool or even from the solar-heated outdoor pool: the panoramic view of the Ötztal Alps is unbeatable. Actually, you probably will not want to leave this charming hotel... at least that's how it was for us during  the last tango trips.
We are spoiled with culinary delights by the kitchen team. We start the day with an extensive breakfast buffet until 10:30. In the afternoon, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., we can enjoy snacks with salty and sweet, cold and warm smaller dishes. For dinner, there is a deliscious salad buffet in the "Gameza" restaurant, as well as a multi-course menu with an Austrian-Mediterranean touch.
We can relax in the small but fine wellness area with four different saunas, as well as an indoor and outdoor pool and a cozy relaxation room - of course with a panoramic view.
The warm welcome from our friendly hosts Josef Ertl & Michael Haslacher ensures a feel-good character. They manage their hotel with a lot of enthusiasm, cordiality and passion.
