In 1985 the search for a quieter life led me to the paradise that is Clarens. A secluded place, immersed in nature, I was instantly in love and built my own home in the foothills of the surrounding mountains. After purchasing the neighbouring apple orchid, Clarens Inn was brought to life. Since then it has evolved into a haven for hikers, schools, motorcyclists, nature-lovers and families of all kinds, due to the incredible range of accommodation.
