It takes a bit of effort to get here but the pay-off is immeasurable…this is what others have to say about their time with us at Tissardmine…

“My time in Café Tissardmine seems more golden, epic and philosophical as time moves on. Distant thunder storms, flash floods, rainbows, magenta sun sets and night skies full of shooting stars mixed with wonderful hospitality, great company, authenticity and a peppering of profundity were all interwoven. I left with so much more than I had arrived with.”

“A jewel in the sahara’s crown. An incredible and privileged insight into Berber life.”

“I loved sleeping in the tents – they were extremely comfortable and warm at night and made an intimate and friendly shared space. Definitely need a good torch! The food was just gorgeous. Overall 10/10″

“I liked the structured workshops with a variety of exercises and some free writing as well. They were very helpful and constructive for my own writing. The tutor was wonderful – serious about writing process, willing to share her ideas and humorous and sympathetic. I learned a lot.”

“Good companionship, wonderful food and nights under the moon and stars – what more could you want.”
