Astrofarm France - a 5 billion star astronomy centre

Astrofarm is an adult only 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, short weekend breaks, day courses and evening guided stargazing, we have something for both the complete beginner and expert astronomer and everyone in between. 

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. Whether you live locally and come for an evening or from further afield and stay over, you will find that you get the same red carpet treatment!

Don't just take our word for it!

What people say about us .. . . . . . .

The best thing is that you don't even have to be interested in stargazing at all to appreciate the hospitality & the beautiful surroundings.

This place is incredible. For astronomers and astro-photographers, you are treated to stunning dark skies and an abundance of knowledge from Andrew. 

This was our first visit but certainly not our last! An amazing setting in a beautiful and unspoilt part of France with all-round night sky free of light-pollution. We'll definitely return!
