About Caroline Nobile

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

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.

What a wonderful place...

  • 5 of 5

Friendly owners, great property and facilities, wonderful location...idea for families and couples alike. The hosts pizza evening (cooked in 400+ year old oven) was a real highlight. Local towns such as Catona, Siena and Lake Tresimino are a delight and all within driving distance. We'll definitely be back...

Perfect location and wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

To provide context this was our first visit to Italy and we stayed at HomeAway properties in Rome, Amalfi and here near Cortona. Our family loved this property the most!!! Antonio was super helpful getting us settled and answering questions. The villa is as pretty as the picture and the surrounding countryside is simply stunning!

We stayed for 4 days visiting Assisi, the town of Cortona and taking road trips through the beautiful countryside. Antonios recommendations for pretty side roads were spot on and were better than the guidebooks. To top off the trip Antonio took my husband and son to a nearby golf course. They had a blast! My 23 year old son had a road bike delivered and enjoyed biking up and down the hills around Cortona.

We stayed in the Stalla Rustica unit. I spent every morning and evening just taking peaceful walks around the villa. We bought food at the Simply market in the nearby small town of Pergo but ate dinner most nights in one of the wonderful Cortona restaurants.

The shower had great pressure and tons of hot water. This was not the case in our other locations. I wish we could have come a little later to enjoy their pool and to see more of their amazing gardens in bloom. But as Antonio says, Arrivederci, which means "see you again"!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the fantastic review, it was a pleasure welcoming you to the Molino and introducing you to Tuscany. And most importantly I finally had some Golfing partners!!! As you say "arrivederci" and see you again soon. Antonio

Il Molino di bordone - Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family vacationed at Il Molino for the BEST 2 weeks ever~! there were 13 of us enjoying Carloine & Pino's villa, grounds, surrounding hill towns, wine tours and dinning extravaganzas!

Il Molino is the perfect spot to rest, relax, enjoy the sun,pool, games (on extensive grass fields surrounding the villa- we held two family soccer games which of course adults lost one of them!). We made this our "base camp" taking side trips to Sienna, Asti, Multapulchino, and of course, Cortona. A lake close by (15 minutes) provided the kids plenty of water options from boating to diving, volly ball, etc. Lots of wine tasting, dinning out in local restaurants and Caroline arranged for a night of cooking lessons with Luka...what an experience to have 14 chefs in one kitchen...with plenty of elbow room. we have a great picture of the evening which will no doubt be our 2016 Christmas picture.

The accommodations are clean, neat, and comfortable. Caroline and Pino provided all the help you could ask for...directions, recommendations, translations and even a guide to the best morning coffee gathering in town.

Our second home

  • 5 of 5

Our 4th visit to Molino di Bordone and as always 10/10 for everything.

Caroline and Pino are the perfect hosts and make sure everything is perfect. The gardens are even more established since our first visit, each time there is something new. Can't imagine a trip to Italy without a few days (or longer) here!

Perfect villa in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5

Our only regret is that we only stayed a week. All previous reviews are totally accurate: the owners, Carolina and Pino were delightful to meet and a wealth of knowledge about the area. The villa was roomy, spotless, perfectly furnished, and perfectly equipped with everything you might need. The location is perfect for day trips to Cortona, Lake Trasimeno, San Gimignano, Assisi, vineyard tours in Montepulciano . A very nice well-stocked large grocery store is conveniently located in Camucia, just a few minutes away by car. The local café is walking distance and delightful for an afternoon capuccino. There are several good restaurants close by in Cortona (don't miss Trattoria La Grotta). We would go back for another -lomger- visit in a heartbeat!!

Cortona country villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely relaxed stay and a short distance from Cortona. The grounds are cared for regularly and with an eye for beauty. The pool was great. We were greeted each morning by the the loyal housecat and each eve by two friendly dogs.If I were to make one suggestion, it would be to provide brighter lighting in the apt. since windows in stone houses are tiny.

Nearby amenities: In our village of Montanare-Pergo, just 10 minutes walk from the house, there is a delightful cafe with outdoor seating, 2 pizzerias, 2 restaurants, a local food-market, DIY store, hairdresser and post office. 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.
