Natalia worked as a flight attendant (cabin crew) for Alitalia Airlines from 1970 to 1995. Prior to her work at Alitalia, she lived for more than a year in London, studying and working in a tourist agency. She speaks excellent English, understands and speaks Spanish and can 'get by' in French.

The twenty-five years she spent traveling from one country to another gave her an opportunity to learn about the ways and customs of many countries and enhanced her natural predisposition for interpersonal relationships; she always succeeds in establishing an immediate, friendly relationship with her guests.

Since 1995, she has attended the 'Academy of Decorative Arts', discovering a hidden talent for painting and decorating that she never imagined before. She now puts this talent to use personally decorating her apartments. In fact, the tiles in the kitchens and the tabletops in the dining areas of her apartments are all hand painted as well as the tromp l'oeil paintings, which gives each apartment a unique touch.

In the last 4 years she has attended courses of the History of Roman Art, which allowed her to get to know the city on a new level. She provides her guests with useful information on Rome and its monuments and archaeological sites.

EXCELLENT LOCATION AND ACCOMMODATIONS

  • 5 of 5
My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I enjoyed our stay in this lovely, comfortable apartment very much. Natalia and Walter greeted us with great hospitality and suggestions for restaurants and attractions in Rome and beyond. They left us a local cell phone for contacting them if we needed any assistance, which was very helpful. The apartment is charming and air conditioned, which was welcome after long days of touring in the heat. The kitchen is small but has adequate equipment for fixing breakfast and simple dinners, which we did with the convenience of a supermarket a few blocks away and several small grocers on the same street. There is a microwave, dishwasher, TV, and stove-top espresso maker that Natalia showed us how to use, and my daughter is now determined to have one!
There is no lack of restaurants within walking distance. We liked Isadoro's and NauMachia but especially enjoyed Clementini's.
We felt very safe and comfortable in the apartment, which is up one flight of stairs and opens to the street downstairs through a locked gate. We used the washer and drying rack to refresh our clothes during the week and were grateful to find an umbrella in the closet for the one rainy day we encountered. Plenty of towels and basic supplies were provided.
We bought Roma Passes, which gave us access to buses and the metro plus a couple of attractions included and discounts for others over a three-day period - well worth the cost. We rode the metro twice to get to Galleria Borghese and the Vatican and toured the Colosseum and Roman Forum area on foot from the apartment. The apartment wifi allowed us to download free podcasts for touring the Colosseum onto our phones, saving us the cost of guides or audio tours.
It's about a 15 minute walk in one direction to the San Giovanni church and beautiful to see. About the same walk in the other direction takes you to the Trevi Fountain, but it was almost completely covered with renovation scaffolding.
After our week in Rome, we moved on to two other locations in HomeAway apartments, but Natalia and Walter's apartment in Rome was overall the best choice we made.
Thank you for sharing the great space and your beautiful city. I highly recommend this apartment for Rome visitors.
Even through the scaffolding, I threw a coin in the fountain, so hopefully, we will have the opportunity to stay with you again!

THIS APARTMENT MADE OUR FIRST VISIT TO ITALY PERFECTO!

  • 5 of 5
We were a bit overwhelmed with planning our vacation to Italy. Natalia and Walter, the apartment owners, were more than welcoming, answering all kinds of questions for us before and during our trip. They provided airport transportation to and from the apartment. They met us at the apartment and provided us with the keys to a very secure entry. Natalia sat with us and helped us plan some things to do and gave us suggestions where to eat. Walter made sure we were able to see the World Cup on the TV in the apartment and provided us with a cell phone. As far as size, it was perfect for our family of 4 which includes 18 year old twins. Extremely clean. Centrally located, it is not necessary to rent a car. I would highly recommend this apartment to any family. If you are looking for a fun time, talk with Natalia about the cooking class/cultural tour. It was magnifico! Can't wait to go back some day.

A ROMA

I would like to recommend this apartment, it is so close to everything and central enough that you can walk to almost anywhere in Rome, very clean, very professionally run, and a place we will most definitely return to on our next visit to Roma.

ROME APARTMENT; CLOSE TO THE COLISSEUM

  • 4 of 5
My brother and I styed at this apartment on the recommendation of friends. We were delighted. The hosts Walter and Natalia arranged a car to pick us up from Rome airport and met us on arrival. They walked us through the apartment, explained how everything worked, and gave several recommedations for things to see and do. We were delighted with the apartment; it had everything we wanted, and its location was fantastic, just up the road from the Colisseum. Walter and Natalia were superb hosts, and arranged for a car to take us back to the airport on the day we left. We are very glad we stayed there and would definitely stay there again.

ELEGANT AND SPACIOUS

  • 4 of 5
A well appointed and well located apartment with charming and helpful hosts. The kitchen was set up nicely and we made use of the wealth of local information and maps. We did find the bed in the master bedroom a little hard for our North American backs (I suggest a softer mattress topper) but the one in the second bedroom was fine. Also the main bathroom having a high, frosted but open window onto the interior stairwell was a bit weird, but couldn't really be helped since the apartment was originally designed that way. In all other ways it was both functional and beautiful. Natalia's lovely frescoes really add to the atmosphere and the decor. We enjoyed our stay very much. This was our second stay (of many we hope) in one of Natalia and Walters apartments.

AMAZING HOSTS PERFECT APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
Perfect apartment located just blocks away from the Colosseum. Quiet block, but near EVERYTHING! We wanted for nothing. Grocery stores, plenty of cafes and restaurants close by. Metro and bus in close walking distance. We can't say enough about owners Natalia and Walter. They were amazing hosts. They welcomed us so warmly and provided us with all the information we needed. They even called us a couple of times to tell us about fun events happening in the area. The apartment was fully equipped with all of life's comforts and conveniences. Washing machine and expresso pot, big pluses. It was clean and charming with lot's of Natalia's personal touches including her beautiful hand painted murals in the bedrooms. We were so comfortable there. They even supplied us with an Italian cell phone. If we are blessed enough to return to ROME, we will definitely stay in this wonderful apartment again. It is perfect for a family of four. We highly recommend it. Thank you Natalia and Walter for your kindness and generosity. Your hospitality made our visit to ROME an unforgettable experience.
