About Caroline Nobile

Pino (Italian) and Caroline (English) met in Yorkshire, married and have 3 children. For 20 years they have been running walking tours (Caspin Journeys) and managing their rental apartments at Molino di Bordone, historic Tuscan farmhouse and flour mill.

Caroline Nobile purchased this house in 1995

Why Caroline Nobile chose Cortona

When we stood in the driveway we knew it was right for us. At the time it was still a ruin and had been empty for over 30 years ! But we were drawn by the peacefulness of the place. There were no roads nearby making it safe for the children to play freely.

What makes this house unique

We love the 360 degree views of wooded hills, vineyards, olive groves, lake and stream running through. At the house there is the lovely big swimming pool with loungers and grassy areas for sunbathing and reading. For families with children there are soccer & volley ball nets, a croquet lawn, swings and climbing frame, bikes of various sizes and a trampoline, used not just for jumping but also star gazing at night - we have no light pollution. We are walking distance (1km) from 2 coffee bars, food market, 2 restaurants, pizzeria, beauty salon, hairdressers, hardware store, clothing shop. We are only minutes from the historic town of Cortona and yet immersed in tranquility. you can walk, run or bike for miles and not need to touch the asphalt.

The Torre suite appartment is the perfect place for two people to stay for a while.
What a beautiful garden and the luxury of a nide swimming pool.
And we were so lucky to meet the parents of Caroline and the mother of Pino, all so nice people. We hoghly recommend this property to our friends and relatives.

Simply perfect!

  • 5 of 5
I chose this property to spend Christmas with family and friends, and it was just an amazing experience! We stayed at Stalla Rustica and everything you can think of was there and/or readily accessible. Caroline and Pino, the property owners, are very nice and charming and they definitely contributed in making the staying simply perfect!
The fireplace in the living room made kept the Christmas spirit alive and although weather was not the best, we all said our goodbyes, knowing that we managed to build memories that will last a lifetime.
Upon our arrival the property was extremely clean and well taken care of. The convenience of a dishwasher and a washer/dryer was very much appreciated. The owners know the area extremely well and are able to address any concern and give any suggestion regarding food, locations and any other needs. Once again, thanks Caroline, Pino and Antonio for being excellent hosts and loving people and for making the whole process (from reservation to check out) a wonderful experience. Happy New Year to you all. Daniele

Excellent Tuscany Villa

  • 5 of 5
We loved our stay at Molino Di Bordone. We were 3 couples visiting Italy and stayed in the Stalla Rustica Villa. The property is breathtaking, Pino & Caroline have done such a wonderful job with restoring and maintaining this fabulous villa and property. It was peaceful, relaxing, close to everything and very comfortable. We didn't want to leave!! The Tuscany area has so many places to visit, you could stay for a very long time. One day we hope to return and will definitely stay here again. Thanks again for making our trip memorable. Donna, Joe, Denise, Mike, Debbie & Matt

great for families

  • 5 of 5
This lovely Tuscan farmhouse proved perfect for our family holiday.Good quiet location surrounded by hills but close to well stocked local shop.
The property is very spacious .comfortable and well equiped with lots of thoughtful touches,such as kids games,maps,books and even washing powder for the machine. The private garden area is great for childrens play and BBQs but they were able to enjoy the freedom of the larger area with swings,trampoline,croquet and games of football too.The swimming pool was also well maintained with comfortable sunloungers and umbrellas.The owners and their family were very friendly and helpful and we would love to return one day !

Wonderful! Couldn't have asked for more!

Wonderful! Couldn't have asked for more!

Where do we begin? From the moment we pulled up at Molino Di Bordone we knew we were in for a treat! There were 7 of us, 4 adults 3 children and we stayed in the Stalla Rustica. We had 3 large bedrooms, plenty of room. 3 bathrooms and a full kitchen with everything we needed. We also had a very large living room to relax in after a long day of touring around all the wonderful cities located within and hour of Molino Di Bordone. Everything was decorated with wonderful rustic taste. My kids loved coming back everyday to blow of some energy on the trampoline and run around all the beautiful gardens and play on the swings. We spent time lounging around the gardens drinking wine and talking about what we done and seen all day. We truly loved the property and cannot wait to return. Caroline and Pino were so wonderful, giving us directions to restaurants and places to go see. They were there to help us with anything we needed. We cannot thank you enough for allowing us to have the pleasure of staying in your beautiful home!

Thank you again for everything!

Owner's Response: We were delighted to welcome your family to our home. We enjoyed watching the children let off steam in the garden and the adults drinking wine in the shade. We enjoy helping guests plan their days out to make the most of their time.

Stalla Rustica 2009

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property to suit the different needs of our family, in particular energetic son (aged 10) and older parents (80+) with limited mobility. Overall, it worked pretty well. The location is superb with fabulous views to the rolling hills, olive groves and fields of sunflowers. We were close enough to Cortona for a night out and there is a small bar, cafe and shop very nearby. Lots of other interesting places to visit are within an hours drive. Pino and Caroline are very welcoming and helpful but not intrusive. The property and grounds are lovely and well maintained with a good sized pool where my son spent most of the holiday along with the other children staying on site and Pino and Caroline's children giving tired husband plenty of time to relax and read. There are lots of lovely animals on site including the two dogs Bianca and Molly who made us feel very at home! The apartment itself is very large and has its own private walled garden area and barbecue surrounded by lavender, rosemary and bay trees. For parents, this was particularly welcome as they did not want to sit by the pool and enjoyed the privacy of a room with french doors which opened onto the garden so that they could have a quiet read or nap whenever they wanted. My mother-in-law is almost wheelchair bound and this arrangement worked very well as they did not have to move far to get to the outdoor eating table. She also very much enjoyed the opportunity to sketch the fabulous views. Unfortunately, this room is down 3 very steep internal steps which meant that the main sitting room and kitchen of the appartment were inaccessible for her. It is a great shame that the bedroom most suited to a person of limited mobility has a bath and not a walk in shower. With this small change and ramps, the apartment would be very well suited for those who cannnot walk too far or manage steps. It is not the best place for a wheelchair as the main drives are gravel and there are steps to get from them to the apartment itself. Overall, the apartment is fitted to a good standard with a lovely rustic feel. The bedrooms are comfortable with three ensuite bathrooms. We did feel the kitchen was very basic though as we like to cook and some equipment was missing, old or worn out. Even so, we had a fabulous holiday. It is a wonderful location and a very beautiful property. Many thanks to Caroline and Pino for a lovely time and making us feel so at home. We hope to come back again soon!

Owner's Response: We are delighted you have had such a good holiday here and you managed to do a lot while having a relaxing holiday too. Thank you very much for your constructive comments. We welcome them as they help us maintain our very high standards. We will probably put in that walk in shower next time we do some work in that bathroom - good suggestion for future wheelchairs indeed. The kitchen has been checked for items needing replacement so next time you come you can really put your culinary skills to the test with all the equipment you need! With warm wishes to the whole family, Caroline and Pino

Explore the Etruscan walled, medieval hill town of Cortona, a hidden gem perched majestically on the sun-drenched slopes of Monte Egidio. As you walk around this ancient and noble town you cannot help but sense the vibrations of more than 2500 centuries of history. Cortona inspired Francis Mayes to write her best-seller ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’. There is a delightful selection of street cafes, restaurants, theatre, markets & shops to enjoy and the town hosts many events during the year:- outdoor concerts, musical & opera (June, July, August); ‘Giostra del Archidado’ (jousting - May);; Antiques' Fair (September); the Diocesan and Etruscan museums are world renowned. Located on the border of both Tuscany and Umbria you can take advantage of both regions.
