Save money on a city break by booking a stay at one of these top holiday rentals. Opting for a holiday apartment over a hotel will save you money per person and it means you can live like a local while you’re away.
City getaways make fantastic mini-breaks in the new year. Jet off to Rome, Florence or London to soak up the centuries of history, art and culture. Or turn your trip into a shopping spree or a romantic post-Christmas getaway.
With so many cheap flights on offer, European city breaks are even more affordable than before. You could even squeeze in a city stop on the way to your main holiday. And inviting friends or family along means you’ll each spend less on a shared city apartment or villa.
This is a mixed review, but I hope others find it helpful. I like to write the sorts of reviews I like to find myself. Stayed at Divine 1 for 5 nights in September. We stayed in a studio for 3 nights … More

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.
