Self Catering Accommodation in Clarens

If you’ve never visited Clarens before, this is the time to join thousands of others that have discovered the magical peace and beauty of this quaint village nestled in a magnificent valley.

It’s not for nothing that Clarens is called the Jewel of the Free State. Nestled in the north eastern corner of the Free State, Clarens is surrounded by the majestic Maluti Mountains and Rooiberge Mountains (Red Mountains), providing you with views that are simply breathtaking.

The beautiful gold, russet, orange and sandy hues of the sandstone mountains around Clarens constantly change colour as the sun moves, as do the Maluti Mountains in the distance, shifting from shades of blue to purple, and these mountains play host to some of the most spectacular lightning shows you’d need to see for yourself to believe.

If having a view of these beautiful vistas creates a hunger in you to visit Clarens, then it’s only natural that you book the most affordable self catering accommodation in Clarens, accommodation that also brings a whole new meaning to eclectic style and taste.
