Français: Deux petits étangs se suivent . Le deuxième est plutôt protégé alors que le premier  est plus ouvert. Ce plan d’eau artificiel de 3,9 hectares, conçu au 18e siècle, alimentait le moulin de l’étang. Il a été réaménagé en 1980. Aujourd’hui, les marais qui l’entourent forment une zone ornithologique protégée.
