Auberge Café du Sud is located in the Dunes of Erg Chebbi, in the southeast of Morocco, administrative region of Meknes-Tafilalet. The closest locality is the famous and traditional village of Merzouga. The location of the hotel, isolated in the dunes, makes it the perfect site to serve as a base of exploration of the Sahara Desert in Morocco
