how to get here

The nearest towns to Tissardmine are Erfoud and Rissani. Once you know when and how you are travelling to us, we can let you know more details but in a nutshell, there are several ways to get to here…


There are two coach companies that provide comfortable services to the desert; CTM and Supratours. The most direct routes are

Fes/Erfoud; this is an overnight service and takes around 9 hours. Once you arrive at Erfoud, we will meet you off the bus and drive you the last 30kms to Tissardmine.

Marrakech/Erfoud; this is a daytime service and takes around 11 hours. Once you arrive at Erfoud, we will meet you off the bus and drive you the last 30kms to Tissardmine.


You can hire a car from Fes, Marrakech or Ouarzarzate and drive yourself. Once you get to Erfoud, we will meet you at a pre-arranged meeting point (Hotel Derkaoua, also known as Chez Michel about 22kms out of Erfoud on the “new” road that now runs between Erfoud and Hasslebied) and guide you through the desert to Tissardmine. We advise that you arrive at the meeting point at least one hour before sunset.

Alternatively, we can book a car and driver for you who will pick you up from your riad and deliver you to our door.


2 companies; Royal Air Maroc (Casablanca) and Air Arabia (Fes) fly tow to three times a week to ERRACHIDIA. From there we can organise a car and driver to bring you to Tissardmine.

    Hi Karen, I am thinking of applying for an artist residency with you, at Cafe Tissardmine. Before I do so I am checking out travel arrangements. What would the cost of being picked up and delivered to your door as opposed to the bus.(estimate) I have been looking at flights to Fez.
    Do you have room for an artist in your Nov – Dec spot before I go on with my research into travel arrangements and application to you
    I look forward to hearing from you
    Very best regards ashar
