Dear Phil and Lorraine,
thank you very much for your review.
I am sorry to read that you have been troubled by mosquitos. All our apartments are provided with mosquitos nets at the windows and besides there is a spray mosquitos repellant in the bathrooms: indeed there was one also in your apartment on the shelf near the bathroom door, but alas I forgot to tell you; I apologise for that.
I will be happy to welcome you again at Villa Di Lupo Parra and next time I will put the repellant in a more visible place, I promise.
