It's a shame Maria suffered so much from the Mosquito/midge bites. I understand how painful these can be. The countryside in Italy does have a lot of biting insects. I guess It is probably a fault of my not emphasising the location of the house on the very edge of a small village in a the midst of one of Europe's greenest areas which lead to perhaps a case of the wrong house in the wrong place! In regards to this and the observations about the lack of iron and hairdryer I have now changed my listing to explain where these items, if needed, can be found, and also how to open the windows.
