We asked the owners to tell us a little about Astrofarm and this is what they said.
Astrofarm is a B&B with a difference! An 8 bed dormitory & charming twin room provide warm, comfortable accommodation for our residential astronomy centre.
Brand new heated shower rooms and full disabled access make Astrofarm a perfect stopover for groups, clubs and societies visiting the region. A 2 bedroom gite is also available, please check for availability.
The astronomy is optional but we defy anyone not to be captivated by our velvet dark, clear skies.
Set in 5 acres of French countryside, Astrofarm has spectacular vistas, space, gardens and wildlife areas. Our guests have 24/7 use of The Hub, a comfortable kitchen/dining/living room. You can choose to eat with us or cook for yourselves as it suits you. We provide exceptionally flexible hours with arrivals/departures, sleeping & meals and as an adult only location, peace and quiet is guaranteed!
We can collect from Limoges airport in our minibus and we are easy to reach from UK from the French motorway networks or a glorious leisurely drive through the towns en route (Le Mans is on the way from the ferry ports in the North).
We are close to Cognac and the Dordogne and a great stop off for the coast at La Rochelle and Bordeaux. Our local area has much to offer with the world music festival in our town, Roman dig, Rochechouart meteorite impact crater and fantastic wildlife and countryside including the lakes of Haute Charente.
