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 Centro Storico

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......

Ciao Bella ! Wonderful Apartment close to everything

  • 5 of 5

I have visited Rome many times and always rented villas. But this apartment was the very best. The owners Natalie and Walter are the most informative and attentive owners I have ever worked with. The villa is fully equipped and everything works. When I arrived in Rome February 26th Rome was freezing and had an unexpected snowfall. But the apartment was warm and cozy. It is in a great neighborhood with restaurants, wine bars a small groceria , a pharmacy, a juice bar and church with in a stones throw away. The first few days of our trip it was so cold so having these things that handy was fabulous. If you are looking for a beautifully decorated, clean , efficient apartment close to everything in the historical section this is a perfect selection.

A fantastic rental

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was exactly as advertised. It is clean, safe, and well-equipped. Natalia and Walter were fantastic in helping us get oriented to the neighborhood and the sights. We walked almost everywhere, including the Vatican, Trastevere, Piazza Navona, Trevi, and even the Borghese Gallery (though that was a bit of a hike; two miles). There were wonderful restaurants and shopping nearby, as well as a convenient grocery store. A magical week in Rome.

A lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Rome because we had a clean, interestingly decorated, and comfortable apartment to retreat to after long days of walking. Having a two-bedroom, two-bath place accommodated the four of us, and the well-appointed kitchen meant we could have relaxing meals whenever we wanted. The biggest bonus was the location: right in the heart of historical Rome. We were able to walk to the Colosseum, the Forum, the Vatican, the Spanish Steps, the Trevi Fountain. Buses to the Termini were close and easy to use, enabling us to visit the Appian Way and catacombs, as well as have a day in Florence.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time I’ve stay here so that should say how I fell about this place. I will for you who are planning a trip to Rome say that the location can’t be matched it’s convenient to all the major sites in Roma. The apartment is very roomy and a local mobil phone is provided.

There are lots of restaurants in the area. The owners Valter and Natalia are wonderful and very helpful. There are stairs, which is not an issue for me, as it’s on the second floor. This is an overall wonderful place to stay when in Roma.
