Welcome to Cafe Tissardmine, a cultural retreat and guest house in the Moroccan Sahara.
Tissardmine is a place of tranquility, a place for inspiration, a place for discovery.


camp and rooms

Situated in an oasis, this tiny traditional Berber village comprising of 15 houses, is perched on the edge of one of the Sahara’s most extraordinary natural phenomenons, Erg Chebbi, a large dune stretching 22 kms long and 5 kms wide and peaking up to 150 metres high. Formed by wind blown sand, Erg Chebbi is celebrated for its unique golden-orange sand formations that start at the most northern tip of the Sahara and undulate across Morocco to Tomboctou. find out more about us…
