Astrofarm Knowledge Observatory France, opening in early October 2015, is a purpose built, year round astronomy centre with fully equipped observatories. We offer quiet zone accommodation, and at the Hub, our social and learning centre, there is a guaranteed Knowledge Observatory warm welcome!
Astrofarm is set in just over a hectare of French farmland, in Confolens is a beautiful medieval market town, built either side of the confluence of the Vienne and Goire rivers, hence its name. Just north of the Dordogne, this region boasts incredible dark and stunning clear skies making it an ideal site for both the beginner and expert astronomer and astro-photographer.
Easily accessible from the UK, Confolens is just half an hour from Limoges airport, with winter budget price flights from Liverpool, East Midlands and Stansted airports. Additional summer departure airports include Bristol, Leeds and Glasgow. We can provide minibus transfer and car hire is available from the airport.
