The surrounding area
Le PANORAMIC is located in the Armorique Regional Nature Park which extends across 44 communes. The CROZON peninsula is part of its maritime region.

Historical Heritage has been developed by the EOST association (Etudes ouvertes sur Telgruc – an organisation which passes on historical, cultural and linguistic heritage)
- Our windmill : Restoration work on the windmill at Telgruc was completed last summer and inaugurated on 16 July 2016. The EOST association convinced the town hall of this restoration project’s historical and educational significance.
It is the only windmill on the peninsula which is open to the public. It stands on the hill opposite the campsite and looks out over Trez-Bellec beach.
You can pay it a visit and learn all about its history, as well as enjoy the exhibition in our restaurant which looks over the windmill.
- The Elleouet bread oven has also been carefully restored by the Eost association which organised a bread festival in June. The next batch of dough will perhaps come from flour that has been produced in our windmill.
- The Saint Divy Spring: The only spring on the peninsula that possesses a spirit. Built in 1577, a Medieval stone sarcophagus was added in the 19th century to act as a place where people suffering with kidney disease could be completely submerged.
This location became a place for forgiveness and was also a key spot in the life of Telgruc, serving both as somewhere to wash clothes as well as a drinking trough for animals brought there morning and evening.
