This beautiful region of south west France has much to offer. Lot-et-Garonne is named after its two principal rivers. The Garonne is one of the major rivers in France, running from the Pyrenees (where it has its source in Spain) to the Atlantic at Bordeaux. The Lot rises in the Massif Central and flows through some spectacular gorges and some of the most beautiful scenery in France to join the Garonne north west of Agen.

Lot-et-Garonne, which is just south of the Dordogne, is still a well-guarded secret with historic towns and villages, and breathtaking countryside. In July this department is a mass of bright yellow as the sunflower crop, grown for vegetable oil, matures. The region also produces a large amount of tobacco, much of which was until recently processed locally at Tonneins. Finally, of course, many acres are devoted to vineyards, producing excellent wines and plum orchards which produce the famous pruneaux d'Agen. Also this area is famous for its foie gras!

The nearest airport is Bergerac in the Dordogne and the gite is situated approximately a 45 minute drive south in the Lot et Garonne.
