Clarens Eddies Self Catering accommodation offers a world of blissful holiday comfort just a few steps away from a slice of heaven in the Free State, called Clarens. 

With its rich history written in its architectural style that speaks of a town built on sandstone formations and the passing of the ages clearly marked by the beautiful striations of red, gold and orange along Sandstone Mountains, Clarens ranks high on bucket lists for thousands of visitors every year.

The village of Clarens itself was established in 1912 when two farms were split in half and sold for fifty pounds to a company that wanted to create its own village in the area at that time. 

It took a bit of negotiating at the time to decide on a name for the village, but, it was finally given the name of Clarens due to the influence of the then voluntarily exiled President Paul Kruger, named after the town of Clarens in Switzerland where he was to live out his life.

Clarens Eddies is the gateway to all of this and more, chock-a-block with art and craft shops, art galleries showing the work of local artists who have made this their haven, museums and superb restaurants that will feed the healthy appetite you work up exploring everything that makes Clarens the perfect holiday destination in South Africa!
