Many thanks N for your review. The pots and pans will be replaced on my next visit to the flat, I don't think that many people cook and they are used very little hence why it had been missed that some had started to rust.
You state that the balcony is in the shade for most of the day.. I think this is a little misleading... I would agree that there is almost always some shade on the balcony but that there is also always sufficient sun to sunbath on the balcony year round.
I am glad you made the comment about the absence of mosquitos it is a regular question I am asked by guests prior to their visit. Occasionally there are one or 2 but normally there are none. Fitted to the flat is an electronic insect repelled which can be used by guests if they wish.
Thanks again for your review and we would welcome you back anytime
