Clarens a weekend mecca where Mont Rouge guest house welcome guests with open arms!

Posted on Fri June 23, 2017.

The town square of this beautiful town is a grassed area and the entire village centres around it. It’s very movie-like, with families playing ball games, residents having a picnic or when festival time comes along, revellers spilling out onto the lawn from one of the many restaurants hugging the square.

The Clarens Beer Festival held every February has become one of the must-attend events of the year and the Lush festival, for music lovers is fast becoming one of the more popular weekends away.

Artists from all over the world flock to Clarens, not only because the views are breath-taking, but also because many of the art galleries and resident artists offer courses where aspiring and accomplished artists can hone their craft.

You’d think that just being in the area, with its magnificent mountain views and quirky stores would be enough reason to visit. But in Clarens there is no end of activities you can indulge in that’ll leave you rosy cheeked and feeling at one with nature. From horse riding, hiking and archery to fishing, dinosaur hunting and hot air ballooning, there is definitely something for every taste. A walk around the town won’t take more than an hour (especially if you don’t stop at every store, something that’s hard to do). Of course, golf lovers will thoroughly enjoy the perfection of the Clarens Golf and Leisure Estate.

Be careful when you visit Clarens, though. You’ll find yourself dreaming about packing it all in and moving there. It’s not just the pure beauty of the town, it’s also the people who are friendly and welcoming. The frenetic activity each weekend means that there’s no such thing as ‘small town syndrome’ because there are so many new people to meet. Whether you visit in summer when the climate is perfectly warm, or in winter where you’re likely to encounter snow, Clarens is definitely a place to put on your bucket list for a weekend (or longer) of nature’s nurture.
