Water, always present,

The fountain at the bottom of the town: a protuding gargoyle shaped like a whimsical figure, whose mouth endlessly spits water directly from the spring.

Water, always present, reappears here and there throughout the village, such as the lake at the camping grounds and the pond at the manor, fed by the streams of the Chaussey, or the Douet Hebert. These wetlands help to maintain a good balance of fauna and flora: water fowl, wild ducks, swans, herons …

There two hidden under bridges green streams
Septentant draw in the contours of the valley;
They mix their time wave and whisper,
And not far from their source they lose without a name.
-Alphonse de Lamartine
