THE B&B DONA’S BOOKS
The B&B Dona’s Books is situated in a classic building that dates back to the 1940s. Amply renovated with modern comforts, it nonetheless exudes a vintage aura.
Strategically located in the center of Luino, it allows for easy access to the Lake Maggiore docks as well as key local shops, bars, restaurants and schools.
The B&B’s name reflects the insane bibliophile passion of the owner, who has generously spread some of her thousands of books in the rooms. As discreet presences, the books can be mute or eloquent companions during your stay.
On the first floor are three double rooms with attached baths, tv, minifridge and wifi. Two of the rooms face a balcony.
Each room is dedicated to a writer - Virginia Woolf, Anaïs Nin and Isabel Allende - whose personality is reflected in the room’s décor and arrangements
Our breakfast/reading room remains open for a stimulating cup of tea or coffee, reading and conversation. In summer the garden can be a great spot for relaxation and reading under the shadow of a giant Matsudana willow.
Furthermore we can recommend you the best walks and journeys in the beautiful woods surrounding the Seven Lakes region.
Upon your request, we can arrange a pick-up on your arrival at the Luino train Station or the dock.
Breakfast is served in the common room, for the exclusive use of guests, equipped with fridge, coffee machine (with coffee beans), toaster, microwave, kettle. Foods available: fresh croissants, fresh bread and toasted bread, biscuits, jams, honey, butter, hazelnut cream, milk, tea, fruit juices, seasonal fruit. Savory food on request.
