Tango holiday - Altea, Alicante Spain - Here
Super-Intensive Tango Weeks, Edinburgh - See below


Altea, Alicante, Spain - 12th-19th October 2017 - The holiday is now fully booked. 2018 dates will be available soon.

We are really delighted to be able to offer this holiday, organised by Travolar, in 2017 and look forward to welcoming you to a week of tango, relaxation and fun in this beautiful area. The hotel is set on the edge of Altea, just 200 metres from the historic centre, and yet also feels very rural, with sweeping mountain and coastal views.
The area offers plenty of opportunities for exploration. There are the pictureque narrow streets of Altea, the sea views and coastal walks and some stunning mountain scenery more inland. We think this might be our best tango holiday yet! The hotel is based on the site of a 300 olive farm. It has a lovely restaurant is family owned and very friendly.

We will offer a programme of progressive tango classes for a group of up to 36 people, including morning and evening classes and daily milongas, plus small group sessions and extra practice time for those who would like, always allowing plenty of time for other holiday activites too!

The Hotel

The Hotel Tossal d’Altea was created by restoring and enlarging an old Altean farmhouse that was built over 300 years ago.

It was an old olive oil mill and farming house and has been renovated respecting these features.

What makes the Hotel Tossal d’Altea so special is its beautiful natural setting.

Located on the heights of the town of Altea (Alicante), just 200 metres from its historic centre, the Hotel is located in countryside setting with mountains close at hand.

The town of Altea, in the province of Alicante, is known for its quality of tourism which seeks to provide a unique and special experience.

The holiday runs Thursday to Thursday. There will be plenty of tango, but also plenty of time to relax and enjoy the holiday. In the afternoons, everyone will be free to decide what to do.
There will be a welcome and relaxed introductory session on the Thursday early evening. On 5 of the other days, there will be morning classes for 2 hours, and an evening class 1 hour class after dinner. The whole afternoon will be free to explore or relax.  here will also be one complete day free in the middle of the holiday.
The classes will be given by Jenny & Ricardo Oria, experienced dancers and teachers who have been working together for 15 years. In the tango classes there will be a balance between technique, connection, musicality and new ideas and inspiration for the group, with the aim to help all the particpants achieve a lasting improvement.


Altea is situated on the Costa Blanca. It is about an hour north of Alicante City. The area is really beautiful, offering opportunities for sight-seeing, walking, diving and of course pottering about, enjoying the cafes and relaxing with a book.
