There’s so little time left for romance in the hurly burly of busy lives we lead, and technology hasn’t made it any easier, either because so many take work home with them, or never really get to switch off.
There is no better way to completely shut down and relax than to order up and plan for a romantic weekend getaway far from the noise of daily life.
If spur of the moment grabs you, that’s great too, just make sure that you and your loved one get to enjoy an entirely undisturbed few days away.
A romantic weekend getaway in peaceful, scenic and beautiful Clarens will be just what the doctor ordered up, and it’s a choice off the beaten track that’ll give you the space and time to remember why you miss spending time together!
Peaceful and scenic is an understatement when it comes to the absolute beauty of the nature that colours this valley at the foothills of the majestic Maluti Mountains.
If you’ve both really had your fill of the madding crowd and are in desperate need of a downtime spoil on your weekend, add an awesome couple’s massage, or spend at least a morning being spoilt at one of the wellness spas dotted around Clarens.
This will more than get you ready for all that’s lying in wait for you on your visit!
If what you want is to breathe in pure fresh air and you’ve packed in your hiking boots, there are a myriad of hikes that are just the thing to recharge your batteries in surroundings that’ll take your breath away!
If you’ve managed to get a booking at Clarens Eddies B&B or Self-catering units, the friendly staff will help you to get a yummy picnic basket ready for the romantic moments you’ll spend gazing out at vistas that seem never ending.
Talking about Clarens Eddies, it’ll be good to know that if you’re looking for romantic, stylish, comfortable and affordable accommodation in Clarens, this is where you’ll come home to roost for the weekend…or longer!
With accommodation specials that are always up for grabs, you can make a real meal out of extending the weekend, so that you can really take your time about enjoying everything that makes this valley one that has turned many guests into owners of second homes in Clarens!
For you and your loved one, romantic may mean a hankering after adrenalin pumping activities, in which case you’ll be faced with more choices than time allows.
It would include bungee jumping, zip lining, white water rafting and quad biking, to mention but a few of your choices if you’re both adrenaline junkies!
Climbing into the basket of a hot air balloon does romance no harm, and there’s little that can compare to the astounding beauty you’ll coast above on a gentle breeze.
Stepping out of your cosy room at Clarens Eddies and taking a short stroll into quaint Clarens Village Square, with its old world ambience, will definitely add to the romance. Besides which, good food, wine and art come together here like a perfectly performed symphony.
Not even the bustle of the village square during holidays and on the weekends can detract from the tranquillity and peace that’ll make it hard for you to return to ‘real life’.
No matter what your idea is of a romantic getaway, there’s no doubt that if you live in Johannesburg, Pretoria, Bloemfontein or Durban, the hop-skip-and-jump to an unforgettable weekend away is right here waiting for you, in a corner of South Africa known as the Jewel of the Eastern Free State!
