The Lot-et-Garonne is often referred to as the ‘Tuscany’ of France due to its similarities; soft rolling fields of sunflowers, neatly kept vineyards and artistic lines of tall cypress trees.
In the southwest corner of France, midway between Toulouse and Bordeaux, is situated the Lot-et-Garonne department. Ideally placed just 2 hours from the Atlantic coast, 2 hours from the Pyrenees and a mere 3 hours down to the Mediterranean. This enchanting department within the region of Aquitaine is a perfect location when you’re considering a new home in France – easily accessible and perfect as a base for exploring other areas of France throughout the year.
The department is extremely well served with transport links: the International airports of Brive, Bergerac and Bordeaux offer regular flights operated by several of the low-cost airlines to the UK, as well as other flights to numerous European destinations. Excellent motorways network across the country and the TGV and LGV high-speed trains deliver you to destinations such as Bordeaux, Paris and onwards to London St Pancras in very little time nowadays.
The Canal Latéral de la Garonne (part of the Canal du Midi) is a major feature in the region, along which the remaining few working barges still sail. You could never get tired of the local views; expansive and timeless, they sweep across the wooded hillsides and down through the valleys of well-maintained agricultural land. The Lot-et-Garonne is well known too for the quality of its produce; prunes from Agen, tomatoes and strawberries from Marmande, Armagnac brandy, apples, pears, kiwis and cherries … This also, is a prolific wine growing area, with Duras and Buzet being amongst the most well known. Duck too, in its many forms, is highly celebrated here: foie gras, magret, confit and gésiers are all to be found in restaurants and shops across the department and beyond.
All year round there are busy food markets in many towns and villages and they’re the perfect place to meet up with friends for a coffee or maybe something a little stronger! A chance too, to sample the many local cheeses, preserved meats, paté, breads and so forth - the way of life here has remained virtually unchanged for centuries. During the summer months, towns come to life in celebration of the long, balmy days - the château at Duras, for example, plays host to an opera, classical concerts and even the occasional rock concert. There are farmer's markets, wine fairs, antique fairs, village fêtes and the ever popular "vide greniers" (flea markets) with no end of country treasures to be discovered!
Explore the historic Chateaux of Biron, Lauzun, Lamothe, Scandaillac and Nerac, also the medieval towns such as Castillones, Monflanquin and Villereal are atmospheric and a real joy to stroll around too. If you enjoy walking, this is definitely the area for you, with numerous tracks marked out.
Amidst the un-spoilt countryside and the fortified Bastide villages, Leggett has a large number of fabulous properties for sale; from cottages and barns of every shape and size through to numerous château homes set amongst picturesque country estates.
However, when the early morning rays of sunshine give way to autumn mist across the hillside, the trees start turning their glorious gold brown and the sound in the sky of the cranes migrating south - the Lot-et-Garonne turns its attention to preparing for the winter months ahead: bottling produce from the garden and gathering grapes off the vines in readiness for enjoying long peaceful evenings in front of a roaring oak fire, with all that you could wish for in life to hand.
