A short break is as good as a holiday


We all just need to “get away” from our normal lives sometimes don’t we?

Thing is… we aren’t always as good at taking the next step!

So at Chichester Self Catering I am here to make it easy for you… just pick up the phone (01243 641665);


  • when you want to go away

  • and I will do the rest or give you options.

The Benefits to a weekend away:

Change of scenery – gives a new perspective on life and circumstances

Clean air – helps you cleanse and detox your body and mind

Beautiful landscapes – refreshes your mind and gets you in touch with nature

Healthy food and water – allows your body time to recover and restore function

New places – inspire and excite your senses

Being with family or a lover – re-ignites your passion for connection

Time away – gives you space to breathe and re-connect with yourself

So what’s not to love?
