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 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 ! 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.

Beautiful historic place to stay.
We stayed here for 5 nights at the beginning of May. We were made most welcome by Caroline and Pino and the dogs. Caroline gave us a tour of the grounds and the tower. We had booked the room in the tower (purely on price) but for convenience we were offered the larger Molinello which has its own patios both front and rear. The house itself has a lot of history. The facilities are excellent with a pool, bikes and a vegetable garden. Cortona is a short drive and has some nice restaurants and plenty of history. We are really pleased we chose Molino di Bordone as it is an ideal location for day trips or just chilling. Thank you Caroline and Pino for being such great hosts. Charlie and Lesley
Beautiful, idillyic and incredibly peaceful
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!
Absolutely charming Tuscan retreat
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.

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
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.
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.
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.
