Come and dance the tango in this magical medieval village in the heart of Tuscany (Italy) where you can also enjoy the sun, walk in nature, take a dip in the pool, relax, eat delicious organic food and taste wine home made. You can also visit nearby towns, go to the beach and meet other friendly tango dancers.


Tango and Tuscany holidays are also part of the VOL' Tango summer festival. Directed by 4 renowned maestros, you will be surprised by a dance show by the maestros accompanied in music by the exciting Duo Volco-Gignoli!



Practicing the appropriate exercises on the ground, alone or in pairs, will provide a physical warm-up time, where you will work on relaxation, axis, support, dissociation and balance.


​ The technical work will make it possible to approach the different and complementary roles and to widen the space of improvisation. Men will rediscover the in-depth structure and guidance of tango.


The women will develop listening to the posture which will give substance to the dance. ​ From the embrace, the structure, the energy of dissociation and its multiple possibilities, we will approach our usual patterns in order to improve and enrich our dance by working on traditional figures and sequences of Argentinian tango.

Awareness of the breath will strengthen our capacity to be centered, to be available and will help us to build harmony in the couple and to increase the nuances in the dance and in the interpretation of the music. ​


Ximena Zalazar Firpo & Willem Meul

Castello di Querceto, a medieval "borgo" surrounded by 1,300 hectares of woods that preserves the authentic style of the bastides of the past. It's a world of forgotten sounds and smells, breathtaking views and sunsets. A historical place in the amazing nature of Tuscany. In the heart of Val di Cecina between Volterra and the Etruscan coast lies the dreamy village of Querceto, surrounded by fields and forests. The medieval castle of the Ginori Lisci family covers almost all of Querceto. Querceto has been fully restored and has a vibrant social and cultural life.
