Zwei Anmerkungen: das Sofa ist schon sehr durchgesessen und man spürt schon ziemlich deutlich die Federn ;-)
Das Wasser ist sehr kalkhältig, der Wasserkocher war schon sehr verkalkt und defacto nicht benützbar. Regelmässiges entkalken wäre notwendig.

OWNER COMMENT: Thank you for your review. The sofa will be adjusted. kettles were decalcified and we added salt in the machine to soften the water. Best regards Podere Casanuova
