Let's look forward to the "golden autumn" in the Ötz valley in Austria. A fantastic tango week with Martin La Bruna & Andrea Bestvater awaits us in our "Tango-Verwöhnhotel".
Our hotel is "uniquely beautiful" situated on a high plateau with a wonderful panoramic view of the front Ötztal valley near Sautens. Here, in the friendly "Ritzlerhof", you can relax wonderfully and dance the tango wonderfully: Our dance room with 130 sqm offers the best parquet floor, a beautiful view and of course tango lessons at their best with Martin la Bruna & Andrea Bestvater.
We are surrounded by meadows, forests and mountains, we hear the birds chirping and we can fully enjoy our freedom "away from the hustle and bustle". Tango & slowing down from everyday life, a successful holiday combination!
The Ötztal Nature Park stretches from the valley up into high alpine territory formed by glaciers with majestic mountain ranges, waterfalls and lots of greenery. Here you can get active with both entertaining walks and challenging summit routes. A number of hiking trails already start directly behind the hotel, such as to the idyllically located Piburger See, the warmest bathing lake in the Ötztal.

The Ötztal Nature Park stretches from the valley up into high alpine territory formed by glaciers with majestic mountain ranges, waterfalls and lots of greenery. Here you can get active with entertaining walks along the Ötz river as well as with hikes. Several hiking trails start directly behind the hotel, for example to the idyllically situated Piburger See.

At the Ritzlerhof we can relax perfectly and recharge our batteries at the same time. The hotel is quietly located in a secluded area, far away from hectic, noise & stress. A cosily furnished house with a lot of alpine flair and honest hospitality awaits us. 
Whether from the large terrace or the solar-heated outdoor pool: the panoramic view of the Ötztal Alps is unbeatable. Actually, you never want to leave here... at least that's how we felt on our last tango trips.
The kitchen team spoils us with culinary delights. We start the day with an extensive breakfast buffet until 10:30 am. In the afternoon, a snack with salty and sweet, cold and warm small dishes awaits us from 15:00 - 17:00. We can enjoy this on the outdoor terrace or in the cosy, light-flooded lounge. For dinner, there is a 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 cosy relaxation room - of course with a panoramic view.

Tango mit Martin und Andrea

Martin La Bruna und Andrea Bestvater lives in Buenos Aires and have been spending a few months a year in Europe for several years. With a lot of sympathy and joy in teaching, the two succeed in giving each course participant the right feeling for the tango. Their lessons are characterized by humor and the noticeable joy in conveying her very aesthetic tango style. Their attention to each and every couple always makes participants feel like they are the center of their interest. They both know how to teach in such a way that you can have fun and come back with a sense of achievement. Your teaching language is easy to understand in English.

Martin and Andrea have already been on Tango trips with us several times and have excited every time anew, because their teaching is particularly natural and warm. 
Even for tango beginners with basic knowledge, they offer well-founded basic work with a very good didactic structure. A total of 10 hours of lessons with Martin and Andrea are planned. In the evening we dance tango in the beautiful rooms of our hotel. 

Martin and Andrea teach clearly in English.
