Natalia and Walter worked for Alitalia Airlines for more than 25 years. Natalia prior to work at Alitalia 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 but also a real understanding of just what travellers need when they’re renting a short-term apartment in a foreign Country . Walter worked as well as pilot in Alitalia for more than 30 years, in the photo above you see Walter piloting Pope Giovanni Paolo II to Mozambico in 1988. They both attended courses of the History of Roman Art, which allowed them to get to know the city very well and they will share their knowledge with you at your arrival. At check in they will personally welcome you and spend time to guide you in programming your vacation. You will have the feeling to meet a personal guide, that help you at 360' in discovering this big city so full of history, and save so much time that normally takes to a person that is in town for the first time

The twenty-five years Natalia 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, Natalia 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.

NATALIA and WALTER purchased this apartment in 2002

Why NATALIA and WALTER chose Rome

LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION !!! This property is a stone throw away from major important sites and also because the building is a HISTORICAL BUILDING :(from 'Le strade di Roma' - Newton Compton Editors): here is the story of the building:

HOUSE OF CHARLES IV OF BOHEMIA: there is a legend regarding the founding of the Hospital of the nation of Bohemia, which was found at number 132 via dei Banchi Vecchi. As the legend goes, Charles IV had promised Pope Urbano V - in occasion of his coming to Rome in order to be crowned king in 1355 - to not enter the city before the date set for the ceremony. However, unable to resist his desire to visit the Holy city (he was staying with his entourage at Prati di Nerone), he disguised himself as a pilgrim and was able wander about Rome for several days. He stayed in this modest building that he later acquired, designating it as a hostel for the pilgrims of his nation. The plaque that is still found on the building is dated 1357 and refers to the second visit of the King to Rome, when perhaps he acquired the building and the hospital founded. The plaque reads as follows (in Latin):

What makes this apartment unique

Our Guests will enjoy a complete privacy and independence with the feeling to have a home away from home, but with the confidence the they can count an always available assistance from us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My husband and I can't thank you enough for our wonderful stay. This was my first stay in Rome, so it was not until we get here that I realized how great a location this is. We walked all over the city and at the end of the day it was just such a treat to return to your comfortable and beautiful home. It served our needs perfectly. You have furnished it without missing a detail......

truly a wonderful day apartment

  • 5 of 5

It was a LOVELY apartment, and the owners Lia and Walter were so helpful and knowlegeable. The location is perfect for traversing Rome, and there are many things to see close by. We have visited Rome a number of times in the past, and we can truly say that this apartment has been one of the top apartments in which we have stayed, and the owners are simply the best and the kindest we have experienced.

The perfect hosts and a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

Natalia and Valter met us with such warmth and such a wealth of information -- they guided us to sights in Rome that we had never visited before but that should not be missed, and I say this as someone who has visited many times. The apartment is spotless, extremely quiet, and on a wonderful little street convenient to many walk-able sights. We stayed with our two children and it was the perfect amount of space for us -- as well as kept nice and cool even though it was the middle of summer. The building is historic and charming and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

Staying Here is Like Visiting Family

  • 5 of 5

Staying at Natalia's and Valter's Campo de' Fiori 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment was like visiting family. The highlight for all four of us during our 6 night stay, June 12-18, 2017, was the cooking class and day Natalia arranged for us outside of the city. Make sure you check it out on their website and add a day to your trip so you can go. They prepared breakfast and cappuccino; then we all prepared and ate traditional Italian vegetables and pastas. We had so much fun while learning with our hostess/teacher and her husband. We visited the lovely towns of Sabina and Farfa, enjoying the Italian countryside and Natalia's company.

From our first emails until our visit a year later, they answered our questions promptly and provided information on what sites needed to be pre-booked, must-see and overlooked ones, restaurant recommendations, approx. taxi costs, etc. They arranged our airport and cruise port transfers and saved us a lot of money over what the cruise line offered. When we arrived, they met us at the apartment, showed us how everything worked, and went over our list of what we wanted to see. They provided the best city map, tour books, and a local phone to use if we needed any help.

The apartment is very conveniently located. Natalia explained which sites were within walking distance and gave us an idea for which we might want to use buses or taxis.

The kitchen is stocked with all the dishes, pots, pans, utensils you will need, and they even provided coffee, teas, a snack for our arrival, and condiments to save you money. The washing machine (detergent included) and huge drying rack were a huge help and saved us room in our luggage as well. The bedrooms were private and had large windows for fresh air, and there is AC. The two baths withy showers allow you to get ready quickly each day for a wonderful day exploring. The Wi-Fi and TV worked well and added to the visit. We loved the apartment and everything about it, but, because it is in a historical building, there is no elevator and it is upstairs.

Italy is all about family and staying here makes you feel welcome and a part of the neighborhood. The property is ideally located for exploring Rome. Natalia and Valter make you feel like a part of their family and that just makes the trip and the memories that much more special.
