Clarens

In the foothills of the Maluti Mountains.

Clarens

The village of Clarens is situated in the foothills of the Maluti Mountains in close proximity to the Golden Gate National Park and the mountain kingdom of Lesotho, and is a short driving distance from Wild Horses.

Clarens is a tranquil village which is home to a growing population of artists and entrepreneurs, and has become a hub of creative activity. Ambience coupled with spectacular scenery and a mild climate makes for the ideal weekend getaway for city dwellers from Johannesburg, Bloemfontein and Durban (approximately 300km away, and a comfortable 3 to 4 hour drive).

Many of the beautiful old homes in the village have been built from the golden sandstone typical of the area. The Free State also has rich deposits of fossils, offering a view of life in a different time - although the landscapes remain unchanged.
