I haven't used any of them myself.  A common suggestion is SIP,
less known are pybindgen and Robin.  But there may be many more,
and others with more experience might have much more to say about them.
Also there is Roman Yokavenko's pygccxml which has a lot of stuff.

Unfortunately there is no solution in sight, with ctypes.
