About Caroline Nobile

The Nobile family are anglo-italian and welcome guests to vacation at their self catering rental apartments at Molino di Bordone historic Tuscan farmhouse and flour mill.

Caroline Nobile purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Caroline Nobile chose Cortona area

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 ! 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

360 degree views of wooded hills, vineyards, olive groves, lake and stream running through.

A 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 tranquillity.

You can walk, run or bike for miles and not need to touch the asphalt.

Absolutely charming Tuscan retreat

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at this little slice of heaven after 3 busy days in Florence. We were thrilled with this beautiful restored farmhouse and the peaceful gorgeous setting. The owners were out of the country, but their sweet helpful young adult children could not have been more welcoming and helpful. Our flat was well equipped, and the bed was fantastic, with a nice cool dark room, we finally got a good nights sleep after 2 weeks in Europe. Great location to explore all of Tuscany, or just relax by the pool. Fantastic restaurant close by, both kids work there and it was the best meal we had. Stop at the market, get some good meat, cheese and wine, help yourself to their wonderful garden, and settle in. Our only complaint was that we didn't stay another week.

Beautiful, idillyic and incredibly peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed out stay, the farmhouse and the surrounding property was beautiful. So quiet and peaceful whatever the time, yet very closely situated to great restaurants, towns and cities. The hosts were incredibly pleasant and helpful, made us feel very much at home. Would highly recommend. Thank you!

Molino di Bordone fulfilled all of expectations and then some. Pino, Caroline and family made our stay comfortable and memorable. Our unit (Il Torre) was well equipped and beautifully updated. The grounds were lovely and all tenants were extremely friendly. We would definitely recommend this beautiful place in Tuscany.

Molino di Bordone -- beautifully tended

  • 5 of 5

The setting is quiet and centered, yet not far from shops, restaurants and the autostrada. Our apartment (Il Torre) was clean and well equipped, The owners, Pino and Caroline were unfailingly warm, friendly and full of helpful information. We would heartily recommend a stay here.

Thanks for your hospitality!

  • 5 of 5

We were referred to Il Molino by friends who have had family reunions here for many years. Now we know why they unequivocally recommended that we look no further for a place to stay in Tuscany. Not just a place to sleep and leave our stuff but to feel, dare I say “at home”, during our stay.

We spent a week at the Nobile’s comfortable Tower Suite, with our teenage daughter. We were made to feel at home from our initial encounter with the Nobile’s children, who showed us our accommodations, made dinner recommendations and reservations, and filled us in on that evening’s entertainment, a festival in which they were participating in town.

From then on, all we had to do was to express a concern or desire and Caroline or Pino would be quick to make suggestions about road trips, sights, or unique experiences, such as a dinner at the home of a local chef/farmer. It was like being at home, but in a new and exciting environment.

Using this as our home base, we were able to explore most of Tuscany’s, and some of Umbria’s, historical and enchanting cities via easy one day round-trips by car.

We wished we’d had an extra week to explore all the sites and gastronomic experiences. And, maybe another week just to hang out by the pool.

Excelente

  • 5 of 5

Foi muito bom ter estado por quase uma semana no Molino di Bordone.

Eu, minha filha e minha esposa ficamos na Torre Suite, e podemos dizer que é uma ótima opção para quem quer aproveitar as maravilhas da Toscana e da Úmbria.

O lugar é muito agradável, bem mantido e os proprietários simpáticos.

Tem até uma horta e dá pra andar de bicicleta.

Trata-se de um posto estratégico para explorar o coração da Itália.
