While the area of the 5 Terre is fabulous, the heat of the summer is a very difficult time to travel there unless air conditioning in the room can be guaranteed. Our sole reason for staying here was because it promised a/c in the room. The a/c blew hot air only, and after a day of walking up and down steep hills, this was not enough to help us relax and cool off to sleep. When we complained, the owner was hesitant to even come into the room to help, and when I insisted, she stated that nothing could be done. We had carried our own rotating fans in the car and so we set those up in the room, which was the only thing that kept the temperature bearable. Other guests slept with their room doors open.
