Get festive by booking a city break near a spectacular Christmas market. Packed full of unique handmade gifts, light shows, ice rinks, fairgrounds and much more, Christmas markets offer plenty of festive cheer to get you into the Christmas spirit.
Cities across Europe play host to Christmas markets from November. Visit Berlin to see Charlottenburg Castle bathed in romantic lights. Or discover unique handmade gifts in between seeing the sights in Vienna, Brussels or Prague.
In the UK, some of the best Christmas markets are held in London, York and Bath. Go there for traditional German-style stalls selling handmade jewellery, crafts and toys and tasty yuletide delicacies. And there’s plenty to keep the kids entertained with street theatre, fairgrounds and, of course, Santa’s grotto.

Thank you for sharing your experience. We are really sorry to hear your comments. The Old town is a very compact space and all A/C ventilation units have to be placed on the back of the houses. The patio at Divine I is on the back of the house. During the hot summer days, when all units are on, it might get noisier. A noise filter has been added on the metal exctractor ducting to reduce the noise. We had guests all season and we did not get any remarks about the A/C noise. We understand that inconveniences depends on guest's sensitivity to noise.
We really care for the clarity of the information we provide and all guest's comments are taken seriously. For 2012 we have made several improvements on the terrace and on the inside of the apartment.
Pictures, information and reviews that travellers can find on different sources for Divine I apartment are accurate and unbiased. We do our best to offer travellers with the most accurate information and we feel very sorry if you felt mislead and that the noise had affected your stay so badly. Our sincerest apologies.
