In the heart of rural life
Mallefougasse has always found its identity in the heart of its rural life. As a matter of fact, the whole history of the former generations of inhabitants has shown their constant willingness to take advantage, the best they could, of the precious and short supplied resources of a both generous and hostile nature. Here women and men, despite few means of existence, faced the hard demands of the country and its yearly calendar. Whatever their occupation: peasant, forester, charcoal- burner or craftsman, is was the soil, the stones, the forest, the spring, the water tank, the sun, the moon, the rain, the drought, the cold, the heat, the domestic animals and their predators which gave the rythm to their daily life.
