Clarens Accommodation

Fittingly referred to  as "the jewel of the Free State", Clarens  is 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,  especially in autumn when the leaves turn a golden crisp colour.

Many local artists have opened their studios for the public to visit. The art galleries, charming church and historical museum are all worth visiting. The tiny "Cinderella Castle" in Naupoort Street , built using 50 000 beer bottles, is also a sight to behold.

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-filled activities include fly fishing, hiking and for the more adventurous, abseiling and water rafting.

Clarens offers scenic splendour, historical wealth and all-round holiday bliss, making it a noteworthy addition to your list of desired travel destinations.

Clarens Reviews

Clarens
Dit is `n pragtige plekkie en is definitief die moeite werd om te besoek
- Jakkie Jacobs

Clarens
A lovely town. Very busy over the weekend, but quieter during the week. Plenty of art galleries for anyone looking for new art. And a lot of other shops - definitely not your standard Mall shopping - for people to browse around and find some interesting items to purchase or for gifts. It unfortunately rained whilst we were there so we did not get to do the walking that we had intended.

- Pieter Conradie

Clarens
You can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet. A number of restaurants that you can go and sit outside and take in the fresh air. Will go back in the winter.
