A romantic and original fairytale castle for 4 located in a rural setting close to the pretty town of Clarens.

At Rapunzel’s Tower you will have the entire castle at your disposal where you will be treated like royalty. Your eyes can feast on the décor and object de art that was carefully handpicked from all over the world to tantalize the senses. Cornerstones from Windsor Castle, tapestries from Dubai, light fittings from America and tiles from Europe all contribute to an unbelievable experience.

While you prepare the barbeque in the Chamber of Angels, have a glass of your favourite wine and watch the sun slowly disappear behind the Red Mountains from Sunset Corner. The guests to this Castle will be treated with spectacular views of Mount Horeb and in the evening, the lights of Clarens looks like stars that have fallen to the valley below.

The garden is especially designed to fit in with the Rapunzel fairytale. Thorns trees, small pathways, and of course the vegetable garden with the famous Rampion, are all very true to the fairytale.

Rapunzel’s Tower sleeps 4 people; the two double rooms with en-suite bathrooms have exquisite finishes: a bath suspended 12 meters above ground level is all part of the experience. No detail was spared to ensure that guests can enjoy a true fantasy experience.

The Red Mountain Range as well as the Maluti Mountains surrounds Clarens, which makes this town an artist paradise. Meander through the 17 art galleries and explore the quaint, intimate restaurants and bars in the area. More energetic guests may put their various talents and endurance to the test with a number of activities that are available ranging from horse riding, hiking, game hunting, fly fishing, abseiling and many more.

Prices start at around ZAR 600 per person. Meals can be added at additional cost.
