AWESOME - Clarens is beautiful - very arty and a must for a weekend away. During the week, things are very slow but it's a buzz over the weekend.

Clarens - A beautiful village surounded by mountains and populated by friendly people. An art mecca with many interesting, different shops. About 15km drive there is the Golden Gate National Park which is equally beautiful with many lovely walks and a 6 hour hike to the very top peak with stunning views.

The perfect getaway - A truly beautiful area to visit. Clarens is vibrant filled with beautiful arts and crafts and plenty of places to eat. Just a short drive outside of Clarens there are also plenty stuff to do e.g. horse riding and hiking. We love going there and I would recommend it over and over again.
