Located at the heart of the famous palm grove, surrounded by stunning nature, it's the ideal place to enjoy Marrakesh, birds singing, fresh air at the foot of the Atlas mountains, great pool...oriental living at its best only 2 miles from downtown!!

The space

Casa Gyla is dream come true of a place at the heart of the famous Marrakesh palm grove built in the 1960 s on a 5 + acres of stunning land covered in gigantic palm tree plumps, olive trees several centuries old, hundreds of fruit trees of 12 different types, humongous atlas cypress trees reaching very high up.
The property was previously a holiday family home, just recently converted into a guesthouse retaining all that homely feel... you wont ever feel like being in a hotel while staying with us!
The house was entirely refurbished in the early 90 s by acclaimed American socialite architect Bill Wyllis. It' s a very elegant and simple place where you' ll enjoy oriental living at it' s best!
The peace and quite you' ll find here is hard to find anywhere else due to the lush vegetation home to loads and loads of birds singing away all day long! That s about the only sound you' ll here while staying at Casa Gyla!
It' s the ideal place to relax, enjoying the sun, the pool and the delicious Moroccan cuisine we are happy to serve at affordable prices.

Guest access

Guests have unrestricted access to all the property! Again, this is more of a home your staying at than a hotel with restricted areas here and there. We are delighted to let you freely enjoy the property! There is a great and huge double terrace on the two upper floors to enjoy gorgeous sunsets and views of the palm grove and atlas mountains from!!!

Interaction with guests

I am a 42 year old Swiss hotel management school graduate recently back in Morocco after 30 years roaming the globe...love to travel and meet new people. I live on the grounds in an independent villa from the main house where my guests stay. Available 24 / 7 to help you with any thing at all you might need, recommending places, travel tips, organizing tours and activities and so on. Staying at Casa Gyla is being my guest, my friend, under my care and protection at all times...inside the grounds and even when exploring the city, you know i am with you for just about any thing at all!!!

Casa Gyla is heaven. Amine is so helpful and charming, the perfect host. After a long drive through the Atlas mountains it was fantastic to arrive at the tranquillity of casa gyla. The style is so laid back bohemian cool. The garden is beautiful and the swimming pool lovely. The rooms are beautiful and the food great with lovely service from the waiter. The dogs and cats are also very welcoming and such fantastic characters, it really felt like home. I thoroughly recommend this place!

My dear Kate & Carlos, Thank you very much for your very kind words! It was really very nice to have you guys and see you enjoy this place as much as I do! The Airbnb and guesthouse adventure I embarked on was to share this place I love so much with others, seeing them appreciate it is what makes it feel perfect! Thanks very much for the book you left me, started it and it seems like quite a nice read, being set in Morocco it makes for the perfect Casa Gyla book exchange material! Very much hope to have the pleasure of welcoming you again! Till then, kindest regards and very best wishes!!! Amine

Amine is a great host and very helpful. He opens his whole house, very big one, for us. It allowed me to go up in the roof to be amazed by the beauty of Marrakech's Palmeraie. He did everything to make our stay pleasant. Thank you so much Amine for your hospitality and kindness. We did spend a wonderful weekend at your place. And also, I enjoyed so much our chat and conversation in your luxurious living room.

Un grand raffinement dans tous les domaines. Une demeure d'une élégance rare au sein d'un parc magnifique et reposant. Une cuisine délicieuse et un personnel de grande qualité. Enfin un accueil des plus chaleureux de la part de Amine et Omar. Bref un séjour de rêve ...

因为对马拉喀什老城比较失望所以在马拉喀什的第二天我们选择了新城的bab,他们家挺远的,从老城广场打车过来差不多要100迪拉姆,但是房子确实超棒,绝对是在中国很难体验到的园林风,适合发呆晒太阳我们在他的庄园里度过了舒适悠闲的一整天,拍了很多好玩的照片。如果只是想住一晚的不推荐这家,位置远,价格高,但是如果为了体验那种欧洲富豪生活,他家很合适,顺便提一句,房东是个很有文化修养且十分热心的人,不过他们家住宿费要上税,这点我有点不满意。
