Clarens, Free State
Mountain resort nestled among beautiful sandstone hills – the Rooiberg. Altitude 1,700 meters, we have been told.
Lots of trees mostly non native: oaks, poplars, birches, London planes, maples, apricot, peach, etc; avenue lined with cedars. Rather strange, if it weren't for the birds we could have been anywhere in Europe.
Our self-catering lodge has the most stunning view of the said hills. I doubt if we will ever match such accommodation! Plus, the price is rather affordable.
We have been incredibly lucky ;-)
