winter retreat

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 11 Jun 2014
My wife & I travelled to Clarens in the winter of 2013. We left Durban on the Friday afternoon & arrived in Clarens at 20h30. Apart from a call we made, our arrival was well organized. We were given the upstairs 2 x bedroom accommodation. Parking was safe, on site & well secure. The flat was excellent. Despite the cold we enjoyed every minute of our stay & definitely plan to return. I recommend this self catering apartment without doubt.
Date of stay: July 2013
Room Tip: upstairs flat is excellent. wonderful views with a good lounge.
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

Reviewed 3 January 2012

We decided at the last minute to try and find a place in Clarens and this was one of the options. It's a 1-bedroomed flatlet at the back of the art and wine gallery and is like a home away from home. It is very well equipped for 2 people and has a lovely outdoor area and garden. There is secure parking inside the property which is really convenient because the town is best explored on foot anyway and it was nice to be able to leave the car there. The apartment is literally one (small) block off the main street and has direct access to the main street, so the location is perfect. The small touches like the luxury toiletries in the bathroom are a welcome extra. There is a fireplace, large living area with a small but adequate kitchenette and a comfortable bedroom and bathroom, which has a huge corner tub and a separate shower. The shower stings a bit because of the type of head on it, but that really is just nitpicking as this is a superb little place at a very reasonable price. The German restaurant next door sort of looks down into the garden but even over the festive season we weren't bothered by noise or anything from it. Definitiely the place for a romantic break.

Reviewed 25 June 2011

In May we spent a magical 4 days in Clarens in the free state, The stay in the wonderful little town was made perfect by the immaculate appartment we stayed in run by the Art and Wine gallery. A beautiful 2 bedroom apartment with superb finishes, fantastic view and ideal location was such an inspiration that we immediately phoned friends in Johannesburg and insisted they join us for the weekend. The people from the Art and Wine gallery made us feel welcome and relaxed for an idyllic getaway.

Room tip: We had the upstairs flat.
