A magical adventure in beautiful Italy to discover the most unspoilt places of Cilento.
The excursion leaves from the riding stables of the agritourism situated in Casal Velino and heads in the direction of Mount Stella: it will be a thrilling day!
Following the paths along the river, we ride through the dense Mediterranean undergrowth with its intense colours and pungent aromas.
Then we climb up the hill to the ridge, from where you can enjoy the sight of podolica cows grazing – an ancient breed of cattle with long, lyre-shamed horns. The panorama that opens up to our view is so breathtaking it hardly seems real: a vast expanse of green and olive groves covers the hillsides almost entirely and stretches out towards the azure blue sea.
We stop for lunch at Guarrazzano, a tiny mountain village, but very characteristic. Our tasty picnic is freshly prepared at the agritourism that morning and served outdoors in a relaxed atmosphere – just what we need to replenish our energies and set off with renewed gusto. A few more hours on horseback before heading home.
After the break, we saddle up our horses and ride up to Stella Cilento, known as “Porcili” (pig sties) until the beginning of the 10th century because, as history tells us, the inhabitants of the town were famous for breeding pigs.
From here we take the path homeward, reaching the riding stables of the agritourism mid to late afternoon.
