This is a very lovely spot to relax in the beautiful Garden, walk on foot to Bologna Central and inhale open minded Italian flair! We would always come back! Filippo is not only friendly but also a very good City Guide!

Filippo's house is a big and beautiful family villa, full of warmth and character and in an excellent part of Bologna (just outside the historic Saragozza Gate). It's quiet and leafy though still only a 15 min walk to the buzzier centre of town. Is also right at the start of the historic portico leading up the hill behind Bologna to the basilica of San Luca (recommended, though you'll be puffing by the time you get there!) Supermarket, bars and cafes are super close. The house is big, with seven bedrooms (including Filippo's), three bathrooms (excellent shower) and common areas sprawling over three levels, all recently renovated. But the house is big enough to feel empty, even when there might be people about. There's a great garden retreat as well, complete with hammock. Perfect place to be with a book and a glass of local red. Filippo himself is a generous and friendly host who knows his city well and will go out of his way to make your stay perfect. Scozia, his cat, will help! Can't recommend '4 Gatti' highly enough.

Filippo was just wonderful, a truly marvelus host. The house is a romantic, fading old mansion from the 1920's full of family memories, and plants and cats. Not chic, not formal. Just relaxed. Totally recommended if you want a friendly welcome and great suggestions for what to do and where to eat in Bologna.

The privacy afforded by this room on the top floor of this old, grand building belonging to Filippo's family, with a bathroom, helped provide the perfect balance of space and friendly interaction with the hosts. It's a beautiful house, in a great area close to the string of bars and restaurants on via del pratello.
