Sambuco in Valle Stura and Albergo della Pace

 We were hungry and delighted to end Day 10 in the village of Sambuco in the Valle Stura.

 Albergho della Pace has a hotel and Posto Tappa, meaning a dormitory for sports people.
They attract mountain bikers and hikers from Germany and France.
 It is a family run business and they make their own food.
It was by far the best breakfast we encountered in Italy.
Note the 10 pound jar of Nutella below on the right.
 A crowd of hungry Swiss mountain bikers prepares for a day in the mountains.
