Astrofarm France Residential Astronomy Centre

Astrofarm is a residential astronomy centre set in the glorious French countryside with velvet dark, clear skies, a fully equipped observatory, tailored accommodation and a huge warm welcome! Situated in Confolens in the Charente region of the South West of France, our location offers stunning views, great weather and a taste of the French life. From week-long holidays to short weekend breaks, we have something to suit both the astronomer and astro-photographer. We pride ourselves on our hospitality and have carefully designed our centre to provide you with a great experience – so good that you will want to come back time and time again.
