Shower was unpredictable and toilet plumbing ran continuously & was noisy throughout the night
Renters be advised that in addition to the advertised cost you will pay for gas usage when you leave which is "expensive gas" we paid 30 euros and only ran the heating for half an evening
Functional fire place looked nice but it was unusable as no kindling was provided.
[Owner counter comment] We have checked the shower and toilet plumbing, all is functioning fine. We always check everything when guests arrive and when they go away, but we never had noise in the bathroom. We suppose it was a momentary thing due to the floating which maybe had moved and then placed itself back in place.
We had been very clear on the consumption and the cost of LPG and for a daily us of the heating we indicated a variable amount up to a maximum of € 50. We did the reading of the meter and showed it to the guests. For a consumption of 9 mc I have received a bill of € 45,92 , so € 30 for 6 mc seems a fair amount to us.
There sure are all types of firewood in and around the house but one also needs the skill of starting a fire.
