Clarens - Lovely place to visit over a few days. It is well situated near Golden Gate National Park with lovely drives to go on.

Loved our weekend in Clarens! - Golden Gate National Park, the sunrises, the sunsets, the star trails, night photography, the Milky Way, the Windmills and much more for the photographer in you! Loved our stay with George & Ingrid at Madrid Farm Cottages. Thank you. We will be back to explore more!

I love Clarens - My daughter and I went property hunting in Clarens and found a great spot at the top of Main Rd. While out on a sun downer walk to look at other properties I had a seizure and had to be rushed to hospital. This traumatic experience however, alerted me two new things about Clarens and made me very sure this is where I want to spend the next phase of my life. The kindness and concern shown by the people in Clarens and the highly professional Hoogland Medi-Clinic just 36 kms away.
