Clarens Retreat Guesthouse, is situated in the idyllic Village of Clarens which, at 1850 m above sea level, is the highest habitable village in the Free State and third highest in South Africa.

Clarens boasts a large variety of restaurants, authentic shops and art galleries, many of which operate from historic buildings dating back to the early 1900’s.  The Titanic Rock, an impressive buttress guards the entrance to Clarens and was named the same year the Titanic sank, which coincidentally is also the same year Clarens was proclaimed a Village.

Golden Gate Highlands National park is situated 17 km to the east and, apart from its sheer beauty and impressive mountains, is home to Massospondylus fossils dating back more than 180 million years ago.

Visit Clarens simply to rest, shop, or dine, or pursue specific interests like visiting Heritage Sites, Anglo-Boer War sites, palaeontology or Bushman rock-art…    Clarens simply has it all.

Treat Restaurant:
Clarens Retreat’s fully licenced À la carte restaurant, is situated in the Main Street, barely 200 m from the Village Square.

Diners are offered food that is crafted from fresh, seasonal and local produce in an exclusive contemporary French-Country setting, where menus change regularly to reflect the seasonal bounty available from local producers and suppliers, whom it is our mission to support.
