The jewel of the Free State, and at 1850 metres, its highest town, Clarens is one of those places you stumble upon and find yourself talking about long after you depart. Huddled up in the valley between these giant heights of ochre-orange sandstone, this little village called Clarens regularly charms city slickers with unique eateries, retail therapy and locally brewed beer.

With a backdrop of craggy limestone rocks, verdant green hills, fields of spun gold and the magnificent Maluti Mountains, Clarens is a picture-perfect village of whitewashed buildings and quiet, shady streets. Its mild climate coupled with excellent opportunities for horse riding and trout fishing make it a bucolic country retreat.Clarens has it all: a cozy village atmosphere, great farm stays and statuesque mountain.
