Malarce sur la Thines accessible by the path of the poets

At the edge of a winding road, I arrived at the bottom of the village “Malarce sur la Thines”. The village is not accessible by car for visitors, which adds to the magic of the place. I parked the car in the car park provided for this purpose, near the explanatory panel of the surrounding area of the village. Malarce-sur-la-Thines is a commune of the Community of communes of Pays des Vans in the Cévennes, located in the department of Ardeche, in the south of the Rhone-Alps region.

At 150 m from the car park. I arrive at the crossroads, then I take the path of the poets (sentier des poetes). Along the way there are surprises deposited by the children. Follow the path, then suddenly the village emerges. Just keep going up.

In Thines, one can admire the Romanesque Church of Notre Dame de Thines which is a remarkable work and was classified Historical Monument by Prosper Mérimée in 1850. It has a monumental access staircase, a portal with four statues-columns, A chevet and carved capitals. The Old Church of Malarce is also Romanesque. Constructed of schist, gray granite, red sandstone and lauzes, it is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful monuments of Ardeche.

In the years 1955, a sculptor, Ms Nicolas had mission for the Ministry of Agriculture, to give back to the village. For this reason, the houses left were allocated to young couples who wanted to revive the cultures and artisanship of the country. What was done: fruit paste, chestnut, chestnut cream, and basketwork and wood.

As it was not yet the tourist season, everything was firm except the very pitoresque restaurant “Around the world”. We are stopped on the terrace to eat something. We were accompanied by “Patty” the ass of the village who walks freely in the streets.
