Clarens used to be the kind of secret holiday makers kept to themselves, they had no intention of sharing the magic of this paradise with too many ‘outsiders’, but, over the years, Clarens became a magnet all on its own that could no longer be kept to itself!
The fact that Clarens has grown as exponentially as it has as a fantastic holiday destination in South Africa has in no way affected or detracted from its charm or beauty, the only difference now is that there has been more and more added to the list of things to do in and around the picturesque village of Clarens.
This is a colourful gem, not only filled with every hue that Mother Nature could put on display, but also filled with colourful locals, many of whom are artists that have found their own treasured place of inspiration.
If a smorgasbord of different cuisines is what you are after, you will definitely find enough restaurants and pubs to suite every palate lining the pavements of the Clarens Village Square!
Gifts galore are to be had, from artwork displayed in galleries to cultural gifts like cultural Basuto blankets that have been transformed into beautiful jackets, and, of course, vibrant markets that will make even the most intrepid shopper shop until they drop!
There is also the famous Clarens Brewery that is a must for craft beer lovers, and even if you are not yet converted, there is no doubt that the team at the Clarens Brewery will get to you, their passion for what they do to brew craft beers you won’t find anywhere else in the world is truly infectious!
Of course, to enjoy all of this, you need a great place to lay your head at night and relax when you take a day off from losing yourself in this village, or after enjoying an outdoor adventure (and there are plenty of those), which means that you will be more than ready for a stay at Clarens Eddies B&B/Self Catering!
