Thanks for your review Isabella.
I’m very sorry, too, that we didn’t get to meet but I think my team- Alessandro, the cleaner, pool man and gardeners - combined to give good service even when I’m not around. Glad that you (largely) enjoyed your stay.
About the scorpions: first, I'm very sorry.
Alessandro made it clear to me and the help that you had issues especially with two scorpions (not an indefinite or remarkable amount) so, we tried to be particularly well prepared.
Before starting to receive guests, I placed insect screens and there's even an extra mosquito net that can be hooked above the bed.
Another thing to note is that by choice I don’t use chemical repellants or toxic sprays in the house or in the garden to support bio-diversity and to keep the spaces healthy for humans as well.
And we keep chemical levels in the pool at the minimum for the same reasons.
We don’t irrigate the garden (in keeping with the Mediterranean theme), so little critters may look for water inside and in the pool.
So that’s the context you chose: a rural house in the woodland foothills of Italy along with a sustainable philosophy.
No excuse but, an explanation.
