After leaving Santa Cristina, we pass a dilapidated old farm named San Prospero. We ride on across valleys and hills and through romantic chestnut woods up onto a plateau to take in the spectacular scenery, including Mount Amiata, the Radicofani fortress and the distant castle of Torre Alfina. After a nice canter slightly up hill we arrive at the S. Luigi farm, where local sheperds still produce delicious "ricotta" cheese.
Around us sheep graze happily in the fields as we follow the way home back along the hills to the castle.
