DISCOVER

OUR TANGO CHATEAU

Our retreat will take place at a tranquil chateau in the Minervois region of Languedoc, a stone’s throw away from the medieval city of Carcassonne.

Nestled amongst beautiful vineyards and olive groves, the Chateau will be exclusively ours for the duration of the trip.

We’ll dance tango in L’Orangerie under high, timbered ceilings, chandeliers and fairy lights.

Between tangos, you can take a dip in the heated swimming pool, head to the tennis court or explore 115 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and pine forests.

 

Tango, wine and unforgettable memories…
