The Cambridge English Dictionary defines the word ‘eclectic’ as: ‘Methods, beliefs, ideas, etc. that are eclectic combine whatever seem the best or most useful things from many different areas or systems, rather than following a single system’, and there is no better way of describing all that Clarens has to offer holiday makers than is contained in this single word!
But, the first thing you need before you can soak up the eclectic mixture of culture, art, nature and history that makes up the whole of Clarens is great accommodation that puts everything at your feet, so that by the time you have spent a day, and perhaps part of the night, out in nature or in the village of Clarens, you will be able to retire in absolute style and comfort.
This style and comfort is readily available at Clarens Eddies, and if hygiene is high on your list for holiday accommodation, then Clarens Eddies will definitely satisfy your need for real cleanliness! This extends to the freshness and fluffiness of towels provided, and linen that is anything but tacky; loose ends are never left undone by this team!
After your warm welcome from the team at Clarens Eddies and settling in, you will be able to start at the top of a list that includes up to thirty activities to enjoy during your stay in Clarens, a list the team is more than willing to assist you with, whether it’s to recommend an activity or to make a booking for your outing or adventure.
The staff at Clarens Eddies care very much about your comfort and are always available to make sure that you have everything you need to make your visit really special, and, when it comes to hitting the village for great food, these locals know exactly what to suggest for breakfast, lunch and supper, and will even make the booking for you!
The mild climate that adds to the magic of Clarens means that even the outdoor activities can be enjoyed all year round, whether it’s white river rafting, horse riding, quad biking, game drives or hot air ballooning, to name just a few; there is always something on the go in Clarens, and, as locals who love their corner in the Free State, the team at Clarens Eddies will make sure you get to make the most of it all.
Besides the awe-inspiring beauty of the mountain ranges, which include the stunning shades of sandstone mountains, fynbos, mountain walks that take you to on a journey to wide open vistas at the end of the walk, Clarens is also very much a world of art and photography!
Clarens is home to many local artists but also a haven for other artists who come to this beautiful village for inspiration that cannot be found elsewhere – the changing colours of sunsets that reverberate with lighting and thunder at times, or crisp, clear mornings are all just fodder to feed the talent that fills any canvas! Art studios and curio shops all form part of the energy that makes Clarens more than just an average holiday destination!
History abounds in Clarens, it is a village that is over a hundred years old with a rich tapestry of history that still shapes the architecture and energy of this entire area, still echoing traces of the dinosaur age, bushmen’s paintings and the Anglo-Boer war, plus!
From the comfort of your accommodation at Clarens Eddies there is an eclectic, rich world to explore, and, with the help of the passionate team that will make your stay extra special, you will return home with memories that will last a lifetime!
