Natural stone vs stone effect flooring

I am having new flooring laid in my kitchen, hallway and cloakroom and am after a rustic, country style look. I am totally in love with travertine floors but people keep putting me off! I am told that the sealer will quickly wear away in the areas people walk, and I will be left with an uneven finish unless I completely strip and re seal every year or so. I have therefore been considering stone effect ceramic or porcelain, or something like Karndean. But I don't feel it would be the same...

Any words of wisdom?

Many thanks,
