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 apartment 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 apartment 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.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Caroline and Pino,
Our 2 1/2 week visit at Il Molino far exceded our expectations.
Your photos and our photos could never do it justice because it is impossible to put it 'all together.' We were looking forward to meeting you, Caroline, but Pino's mother was lovely and Pino's tips were great when he got back.
Let us know if it is still possible to get some of you olive oil.
All in all, 5 stars out of 5!
We'd love to stay again.
Barbara & John
