Overview

About the property

House in Cortona, Arezzo Province, Tuscany and Florence, Italy - Tranquil Idyllic Setting In Close Reach Of Historical Towns Like Cortona And Citta Di Castello

La Chimera sits in a beautiful location overlooking a lush valley. Constructed on a number of ancient medieval terraces, it is a magical stone mansion, on several different levels and features original architecture dating back 600 years. Vaulted ceiling and crested stone fireplace in what was once the village meeting room, a huge Tuscan kitchen, arched entrances, secret places to hide away or explore and lush, wild gardens and grounds leading down to a forest with a view over a small lake - for adventurous hikers.
