It’s not for nothing that Clarens is widely acknowledged as the Jewel of the Free State. The valley at the foothills of the Maluti Mountains and held in embrace by the Rooiberg Mountains, is one place that really belongs on any nature lover’s bucket list.
For that matter, those who love history and those who enjoy the great outdoors, should also be sure to add this breathtaking village and valley to their bucket lists!
The Rooiberg Mountains, known in English as the Red Mountains, are very aptly named for the sandstone formations that bring to life rich shades of ochre, orange, yellow, brown and pink as the sun shifts through the day, making sunrises and sunsets absolutely spectacular.
Occasional thunder storms set the stage for stunning displays of lightening against the backdrop of the Maluti Mountains that’ll take your breath away, without even having to leave your room at Clarens Eddies!
There is something so unique about the beauty of Clarens that even the many local artists cannot compete with, and it’s a beauty that’ll stay with you long after you’ve headed back to the hustle and bustle of the city.
Speaking of artists, Clarens is considered the Art Mecca of South Africa, and with over 20 art galleries that show an eclectic mix of art in its many forms, it’s really easy for art lovers to lose themselves for an entire day as they explore all that’s on offer.
If you’ve chosen to stay at Clarens Eddies, you’ll be surrounded by art on the walls of each room as well, originals that come from the brushes and pencils of local artists, which in effect turns your accommodation into a fascinating mix of art, style and comfort that’s hard to resist.
