Nestled in the valley between majestic mountains you’ll fall in love with Clarens

The ochre-orange sandstone of the Rooiberge Mountain range and the pastel blue and purples of the majestic Maluti Mountain protect a village that exudes mystery, magic and beauty.

This is where Clarens hides from the rest of the world, quietly going about life away from the bright lights and deafening sounds of the city, offering respite to weary Joburgers and Durbanites in desperate need of a complete breakaway.

Clarens is a place that‘ll charm the most jaded visitor and make a convert of them, adding yet more visitors to the list who’ll be back, again and again.

The colours of nature in this valley are indescribable, though many an artist has come as close as possible to capturing the essence of this stunning beauty.

Photographers come from all around the globe to immerse themselves in the varying lighting throughout the day and night across the valley and into the majestic mountains that ring it lovingly.

Clarens Village itself retains an old world feel hard to find in other holiday spots, with its sandstone buildings that have stood for a hundred years, giving yet more inspiration for artists and photographers.

In fact, the oldest building in Clarens is the NG Church and still as beautiful as it was 100 years ago when it was built.  This same sandstone was used to construct the Union Buildings in Pretoria, yet another testimony of the beauty and strength of Clarens sandstone.

You’ll find that there are many locals who started out as visitors only to find that living in this beauty and tranquillity has such a pull that before they know it they’ve bought the farm!

Clarens is about natural beauty one can drown in, great food, eclectic art and curios, Basotho blankets and extreme activities mixed with the more gentle of these, which is more than enough variety to satiate all the senses of anyone wanting to spend a weekend, a week or more.

In fact, those who keep returning make this quaint village a favourite weekend getaway so that they can sample the goodies they didn’t last time round, and it takes a long time to get around to checking off a bucket list for Clarens.

Hospitality is the name of the game in this beautiful little town, which is exactly as it should be in a setting such as this.  The welcome is so genuine that it’s hard not to get attached to your favourite restaurant, hiking trail, mountain bike trail or horseback ride…or your great accommodation!

Hospitality and a warm welcome is exactly what you get when you book accommodation at Clarens Eddies B&B or Self Catering. The staff here are locals who want nothing more than to make sure you get the best out of your stay with them, and they pull out all the stops to make it so.
