About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2001

Un appartement très confortable, très bien situé et très bien équipé permettant de se consacrer entièrement à la visite de la ville. De plus, le quartier comporte de nombreux cafés, restaurants (ne surtout pas manquer Clementini à deux pas) et commerçants qui le rendent à la fois pratique et sympathique. L'accueil de Walter et Natalia est parfait. Nous y reviendrons avec plaisir.

Rome apartment

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location and this lovely apartment Helpful owners and a phone to call for help plus other little extras that make it easier for you. 2 bedrooms and bathrooms and enough space to put your clothes away was a much appreciated bonus . On our second day we were up very early and walked around the Cooleseum and the forum before breakfast with no one much around and managed to introduce ourselves to a very nice Roman cat along the way.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Rome (1st time) was magical and extra special because of the great accommodations we had while there. Thank you Natalie for taking extra time to share and point out the wonders Rome holds!! The apartment was perfect, full of charm and culture. There was nothing lacking...it was a home away from home, cozy and exceptionally clean! Thank you for making our time in Rome so memorable.

Great location, clean and comfortable apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time to Rome, but the first trip with the husband and my 62 year old mother. The location of Natalia and Walter's apartment is perfect. The size and comfort level is great. The owners did a fantastic job of communicating with me throughout our reservation process and leading up to our arrival. Their friend Stephy also did a great job in greeting us and explaining the ins and outs of the flat. The details of the apartment are described clearly - 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms. The main bath is plenty big, and the .5 bath is a great little extra in case someone needs to jump in while the first is occupied. The location of the apartment itself is convenient to the Metro, and Taxis, but its also just a short walk to many sights. Several great restaurants are nearby, we definitely enjoyed a few! If ever our travels lead us back to Roma, we will definitely seek out a rental unit with Natalia and Walter! Thank you for helping me make this a wonderful experience for us and my mother!!!

OUTSTANDING

  • 5 of 5

This location was excellent! Both Natalia and Walter were there to greet us and give us information on (transit, places to see, restaurants etc). MOST HELPFUL. We stayed there for 4 nights with another couple. The second bedroom was small as indicated but the queen size bed was most comfortable! An excellent spot as we were traveling with another couple. You cannot say enough about the location as you can get to every place either by walking or taking local transportation (Metro) just a short walk. Very quiet street. I would recommend this location. You can also tell that Natalia and Walter are very proud of there rental. I would also suggest that you take Natalia's advise on where to eat as the food is excellent and great value!

First time to Rome

  • 5 of 5

We would highly recommend this apartment as you explore Rome! Walter & Natalia were very nice and so helpful. Their guidance was especially appreciated since it was our first trip to this amazing city. They also arranged for our transportation from the train station when we arrived & to the airport upon our departure, well worth the fee. The home was very clean, much more spacious than staying in a hotel, and only one floor up from ground level. It was so comfortable to come back to after a long day of seeing the sites!
