Astrofarm B&B accommodation

Our 12 bed Astrofarm residential centre is set in over 2 hectares of French farmland, in Confolens, Charente, South West of France. The original farmhouse is close to 150 years old and enjoys the title of ‘highest house in the commune’ although much of the Charente is flat! Our unique Astrofarm B&B offers flexibility and comfort and our renowned hospitality and warm welcome.

Astrofarm accommodation is designed for peaceful sleeping with comfort and accessibility of prime importance. We have carefully restored the attached barn to create a modern, warm and spacious dortoir (a room for sleeping), without losing the stunning features typical of a Charentais farm.

Astrofarm B&B guests have full use of our newly completed dining room, patio and plentiful seating around the gardens. The garden room is equipped with mains power, internet, a fridge, tea and coffee making and comfy chairs. 


For groups of 4 + we have a simple DB&B cost per night which includes:- 

Dortoir cabin bed, breakfast, 2 course dinner with wine, hot showers, parking, wifi, tea & coffee, bedding, towels, fleeces, dressing gown, & toiletries.

You can stay on site and enjoy the facilities all day.

Exclusive use of dorm room for a group booking of 6 or more booking together.
