Couvaloup – Hopefield Guest House

Couvaloup Guest Home, Garden Street, Hopefield, South Africa

Nestled in the heart of Hopefield, this sprawling 1.35-hectare property is a true oasis curated by its owner, Laurent Bayard. Operating as the enchanting Couvaloup Guest House, this historical gem has a rich history dating back to 1852 when it served as the residence of Dr Karl Bremer.

Laurent, a resident of Hopefield for 12 years, has transformed this 19th-century ranch into a haven of sophistication and country-inspired luxury. The property is not just a residence; it’s a manifestation of Laurent’s dreams, drawing influences from his global travels.

As you step onto the expansive terraces surrounding the house, you’re greeted by a picturesque view of lush gardens, home to a delightful assortment of dogs, chickens, and peacocks, including adorable newborns. The gardens, meticulously irrigated, feature a collection of indigenous trees that add to the property’s enchanting charm.

The main house, a testament to historical preservation, comprises five ensuite double bedrooms. A bohemian mix of collectable furniture and artwork adorns the interiors, providing a glimpse into the potential of this unique space. The original farmhouse, lovingly restored, boasts a phenomenal country kitchen and an open layout, creating inviting spaces for entertainment and relaxation.

Converted from an old barn, three ensuite bedrooms showcase the property’s versatility. The exterior is equally impressive, surrounded by established gardens, offering a peaceful and private outdoor space. A patio area, garage, and ample parking add practicality to the property.

The 12m by 5m salt pool, accompanied by a pool house, invites hours of relaxation in the West Coast sunshine. Embracing elegance, this Grand French Style Country Home stands out with its historical significance and timeless allure.

Conveniently located near attractions like Langebaan, Bokkom Laan in Velddrif, Paternoster, and the West Coast National Park, this luxurious guesthouse, featured in renowned publications, is not just a property; it’s an invitation to tranquility and a refined lifestyle. Experience the magic of Couvaloup—a place where sophisticated luxury meets the countryside, creating a mystical scene for those seeking peace and memorable moments.

    The guesthouse is a magical place away from the rush of the city. Peaceful and feels like a touch of european mix with retro chic, a wonderful escape to just breathe and enjoy wholesome food in a relaxed environment.
