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?
