The prototype of the very first Moto Guzzi was created here in 1919 in a little workshop which is preserved by your host Jackie who is perhaps the nicest and funniest man in Italy. A fantastic and accommodating host he is a wonderful ambassador for his town. His wife Nena makes some very beautiful sewing items which make great handmade... More

As part of our honeymoon we wanted to visit Lake Como for a few days and after a bit of internet searching we came across this B & B in a small town nestled on the banks of Como. It is run by Gianni (known by many as Jacky) and his wife Nena, with Gianni and his family living In... More

My husband and I stayed at Antica Officina last year. Gianni was a perfect host, I was suffering from a bad case of jet lag, and Gianni took my husband on a personal tour of the city. We had nothing but an awesome time the whole time we stayed here. We were treated like one of the family. If you... More

I stayed at Antica Officina last year and I think I was their worst guest. I arrived late, unannounced but Gianni, Nena and Rodrigo made me feel at home. The location is a Moto Guzzi enthusiasts dream, close to the factory and museum. The rooms are very comfortable and the courtyard and cantina are perfect for chatting with Gianni and... More

My friend and I went to Lake Como last weekend and stayed at Antica Officina B&B. It was my first time in Italy and she'd been there only once previously, so neither of us really knew what to expect in Mandello. From the start, Gianni was great with communication -- he gave us advice on traveling to Mandello and even... More

After trawling the net for somewhere to stay on Lake Como I found this. Antica Officina is exactly the sort of place I want to stay when I visit Italy, the B&B is shared by Gianni and his wife Nena (who is Brazilian), their son and Gianni's sister and parents. On the second night Gianni organised for us to go... More

Antica Officina was absolutely the best place we stayed at in Italy, our host Johnny T and his wife were fabulous. Johnny T made us feel welcome from the moment he picked us up at the train station. Once we parked our bags at his B & B, he took us on a walking tour of old and new part... More

As a stopover towards our final destination we stayed here one night and had a great time. The staff was awesome: gently, enthousiastic and proud. And all for a great price. Inside, there's a small motorcycle museum. Clean, large rooms and a very extensive breakfast.

I spend there just a little time but I fell in love with the place immediately! There is comfortable accommodation with breakfast as you wish for reasonable price. The town/village seems like a fairytale and you can get to lake in few minutes. If you are more interested in walking than in swimming, you can do a lot of trips... More

Italian reliability and Brazilian radiance: this is the Antica Officina, a B&B beautifully managed by Gechi, Nena and the children Thiago and Rodrigo. In the heart of the historic center, just a walk from the lake, the rooms are tastefully decorated, where the charm of antique furniture blends with the objects in wrought iron worked with skill and ability by...
