Clarens Accommodation

    Clarens is a picturesque village nestled in the Maluti Mountains of the Free State province. It offers a relaxed pace and charming atmosphere, with art galleries, quaint shops, and excellent restaurants. The surrounding scenery is breathtaking, with opportunities for hiking, biking, and outdoor adventures.

    Many describe Clarens as an artistic haven and a place to unwind from city life. It has a bohemian vibe and is known for its community of artists. Galleries to visit include the Blue Donkey and Ash River Gallery.

    The village gets very busy on weekends and holidays, so booking restaurants in advance is recommended, especially for dinner. Popular picks are Clementine's, The Courtyard Cafe, and The German Restaurant for sundowners on the deck. Be sure to also visit the Clarens Brewery and kick back with one of their craft beers or ciders.

    Clarens makes a great base to explore the stunning Golden Gate Highlands National Park, just a 20 minute drive away. The park offers excellent hiking and is home to beautiful sandstone formations and cliffs.

    While the village has its charm, it can get crowded on busy weekends so consider escaping to the peace of the nature trails just outside town. The pristine landscape provides the perfect setting to relax and rejuvenate.

    With its fresh mountain air, laidback atmosphere, and surrounding natural beauty, it's easy to see why Clarens is a favorite weekend getaway for many visitors.
