In 1990, the little family moved to Réunion Island, a French department in the Indian Ocean, as they finally could have their jobs in the same city. They used to visit South Africa during some of their holidays, with a first visit in 1997. They were blown away by the beauty and the diversity of the country. It is during this first visit that they discovered Clarens. The idea of retiring in the Free State slowly made its way through … In 2007 they bought a bare piece of land 20km from Clarens. Domaine Sérénité was born. In 2013, when Betty and Huy retired as headmasters of high school they moved to South Africa and called domaine Sérénité their new home.
