Clarens Accommodation

Clarens accommodation is a true gem when it comes to places to stay. Fittingly so as The Jewel of the Free State is what many call the quaint little town of Clarens , comfortably situated between the high sandstone Rooiberg and the foothills of the Maluti Mountains, in  close proximity to the Golden Gate National Park and the mountain kingdom of Lesotho.

The scenery in Clarens is a well-known attraction for artists and photographers throughout the year but especially so in autumn when the leaves turn a golden crisp colour.

Many local artists have opened their studios to the public. Art galleries, a charming church and a historical museum are all worth a visit. The tiny Cinderella Castle in Naupoort Street , built using 50 000 beer bottles, is also worth a visit. There are many bushman (san) paintings to be found on the farms near the Highland Routes along the foothills of the Maluti Mountains. The tranquil village environment, the magnificent views and the mild climate make Clarens a pleasant and stress free weekend getaway. Popular with locals, Clarens is only a 3 hour drive from Johannesburg or Durban.

Around the village square,  Clarens boasts exceptional restaurants. Other fun filling activities include fly fishing, hiking and for the more adventurous, abseiling and water rafting.

Accommodation in Clarens offers a multitude of scenic splendor, historical wealth and all-round holiday bliss, making it a noteworthy destination to add to your list of desired travel destination.

Nice arty town - will go visit again

- Adriaan Venter

The town can get very busy over the week end, so if you are not up for more people, Golden Gate is just outside for beautiful scenery and some solitude. A must see town, and one with a charm that will make you come back.
- Magdel Van Rooyen

Excellent for a week-end away from the city
- Frederik Bezuidenhout

A very beautifull little town, clean air and we couldn`t believe all the stars we could see at night, unbelievable.
- Rudolph Oelofse

Clarens is 'n pragtige dorpie! Die rustigheid van die omgewing en die pragtige winkeltjies en kunswerke is beslis iets om na terug te gaan! Dis sielskos!!
