Astrofarm Claimed

Astronomy Centre

Be the first to review

Astrofarm is an 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 enjoy the same gold star treatment!

And......relax! After 8 nights with the big guns, Astrofarm has gone very quiet! The convoy left this morning and after a mega bed change and cleaning blitz I can stand down for a couple of days. Its been a really great week with the gang, although we did all miss Faye this time around.

The last couple of years they have been blessed with 8 clear nights - this year the weather was a bit hit and miss. It didn't seem to affect their stay as they have gone away with some great images, had plenty of time for processing, laughed a lot, tinkered with the kit and sorted out the observatories. It has been a full week of astro and social and they must have had a good time as they booked their 2020 dates before leaving!

Getting straight again now before the next group arrive on Friday - batten down the hatches as its the Butter Babes!
