Between the high sandstone Rooiberge and the Maluti Mountains, the picturesque little town of Clarens is aptly described as The Jewel of the Free State. Clarens is situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains in very close proximity to the Golden Gate National Park and the mountain kingdom of Lesotho.
All year round, especially in autumn when the leaves turn gold, the scenery in Clarens is a magnet for artists and photographers. Clarens boasts excellent restaurants which are situated around the Village Square. Other activities include fly-fishing with some of the best fly-fishing opportunities, hiking and for the more adventurous, abseiling and white-water rafting.
Romantic: The perfect honeymoon cottage. Very private and tranquil. Roses and champagne supplied.
