Information on Lot-et-Garonne and Property Available for Sale through Leapfrog Properties
Lot-et-Garonne is a department in the southwest of France and is part of the current region of Aquitaine and is surrounded by the departments of Lot, Tarn-et-Garonne, Gers, Landes, Gironde, and Dordogne.
The climate is mild and the annual rainfall is nearly the least in France. Agriculturally the department is one of the richest: wheat is the chief crop with maize and oats coming next. Potatoes, vines (the best wines are those of Clairac and Buzet) and tobacco are also important sources of wealth. Vegetable and fruit-growing are prosperous with plum-trees and apricots well cultivated in the valleys of the Garonne and Lot. The making of lime and cement, tiles, bricks and pottery, confectionery and dried plums (pruneaux d'Agen) and other delicacies, and brewing and distilling, employ many of the inhabitants.
The capital Agen is a modern but not unattractive town that sits on the Garonne River and is surrounded by orchards of plums that produce around 35,000 tonnes of the world famous pruneaux d’Agen every year. Thanks to its pleasant and mild climate you can enjoy your stay here at any time of the year and the city also has some wonderful medieval properties and there is also the church of St Caprais- a romanesque building with several chapels and the Musee des Beaux arts is worth going to, with a collection of five Goyas.
