How was the idea of creating an “encuentrito” in a resort style hotel born?

In October, 2017 the production manager of Mileade  (originally Vacanciel, renamed in 2021) asked me to imagine an ideal tango weekend for an individual or a couple.)

I listed the desired ingredients:

  • lots of time on the dance floor as well as time to explore the surrounding area
  • a good level of dance, respectful of the rules of living together, without being rigid
  • an ideal amount of participants maximizing the ability to make social connections
  • maximum diversity of countries represented and 100% parity respected allowing for individual as well as couples registrations (*)
  • comfort and enjoyment at all levels: booking process, accommodations, meals, dancing

(*) do not hesitate to use this partner search site that we recommend:


What are the advantages of this “encuentrito”?

  • a place to stay that is totally reserved for us (from 2022) and therefore the possibility of adapted living hours
  • the price includes all milongas, meals and accommodation
  • total comfort and access to the hotel’s amenities
  • all meals included in the price and the option of packed lunches for excursions
  • assistance available for transfers to and from the venue
  • a conviviality facilitated by our experience as organizers and by the reasonable size of the group: 150 participants
  • experienced DJs: Paola Pia (Italy), Myriam “La Cordobesa” (Argentina/France), CyberChris (France)
  • a team of 4 people with no other objective than to ensure your satisfaction, all logistics outside the ball being taken care of by the Roquebrune-sur-Argens team
