Lot-et-Garonne (47)

Lot et GaronneLot-et-Garonne is in the region of Aquitaine in south-west France. It is named after the rivers “Lot” and “Garonne”. South of Dordogne, Lot-et-Garonne is the second inland department in Aquitaine. The coastal Aquitaine departments of Gironde and Landes are to the west; and Lot, Tarn-et-Garonne, Gers (Midi-Pyrènèes) are to the south and east.

The countryside of Lot-et-Garonne is very similar to Dordogne: fields of sunflowers, small woods, vineyards and cypress trees; interspersed with chateaux and quaint, quiet villages with red tiled roofs. Despite all the similarities Lot-et-Garonne tends to be quieter than its northern neighbour.
