About Us


La Chaumière offers Bed & Breakfast accommodation in Welgemoed, Bellville.
It is best suited to non-suited guests, although we welcome those as well!
This is a place of rest and tranquility, where you can kick off your shoes at the end of a busy day, sit on the verandah outside your suite, and watch our resident weavers building their nests. Here you are close to nature, where the most intrusive sounds you’ll hear are the song of birds in the morning or the croak of a lonely frog at night.

Karl and Maggie will make you feel welcome in their casual, friendly manner, and encourage you to make yourself comfortable and ‘feel at home’. They have designed this guesthouse to blend in with the natural, peaceful setting, giving it a slightly bush-lodge atmosphere, without being too predictably “African”.

The mission at La Chaumière is to provide a really comfortable stay, to both business and leisure travellers, with a view to making every guest return again and again – as we have managed to do with guests still supporting us 18 years after their first visit.

We hope that this short introduction will appeal to you and if it does, you’ve found the right guesthouse for your stay in Cape Town.

Can’t wait to meet you!
