Astronomy holidays - a break with a difference!

Astrofarm Astronomy Centre is the perfect place for an astronomy holiday - with some of the best weather in France, huge, velvet dark skies and stunning south and west views. We have something for everyone, as Astrofarm specialises in astronomy holidays for both the beginner and experienced astronomer. We have plenty to do in our wonderful town of Confolens and on-site here at Astrofarm in the peaceful French countryside.

What we offer

Our purpose built observatory, viewing platforms, wide range of equipment and clear, dark skies provide the perfect location for both observing and astro-photography.

Included in your B&B price you have full access to the Astronomy Centre which includes the use of facilities, observatory, observing area, tripods, telescopes, piers, equipment and software.

If you have any questions about what you need to bring, please do not hesitate to contact us and we will be delighted to talk to you.

Astrofarm accommodation offers the flexibility for guests who will be up throughout the night observing our amazing skies. We provide hot drinks 24/7, breakfast is served until midday and the dormitory is a quiet, dark sleeping room for those heading to bed at daybreak! A minimum guest age of 16 guarantees peace and quiet and the chance to sleep until lunchtime after a full night observing.
