Visitors to the quaint village of Clarens are spoilt for choice with a host of galleries, craft shops and restaurants to explore, while the more adventurous in the family can indulge themselves in the many outdoor pursuits on offer. Clarens has become an artist's haven, possibly lured here by the unique golden light cast by the sun on the cliffs of the Golden Gate Highlands National Park. Even the ancient inhabitants of the Clarens countryside were inspired to express themselves artistically as is evident from the many Bushman paintings in the surrounding sandstone cliffs.

It is a destination for the whole family. Dad can go golfing or trout fishing while Mum browses the shops at her leisure or enjoys a spot of tennis.

Clarens is unique. It has that small town friendly arty-vibe, yet it's tucked away miles from anywhere. The surrounds are majestic, and the air crisp. Time just slows down, and one can feel the stresses of life ebb away. Therapy never felt this good. We have been going to Clarens for years, and it never fails to hit the spot. Try it just once, and you'll be back.
