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 or a weekend break, either with a group or as a solo traveller, we have something for both the amateur and expert astronomer.

We pride ourselves on our hospitality and have carefully designed our centre to meet the needs of astronomers and strive to provide you with a great experience - so good that you will want to come back time and time again.


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 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!

This place is incredible for both astronomers & photographers, you are treated to stunning dark skies and an abundance of knowledge.
