Lot-et-Garonne is an area of fruits, vegetables and hazel nuts, but it offers also an abundance of vineyards (Bergerac, Marmandais, Duras, Mombazillac, Pecharmant...) and products such as
Pruneaux d'Agen, Armagnac... It has also an exceptionel climate, a friendly welcome and what we call:
la douceur de vivre. From May to October many towns and villages come alive with special events such as music, theatre, dance and song (eg. in August: The Festival of Street Art in Miramont de Guyenne). Beside the bastides and beautiful scenery, there are colourful local markets every day of the week somewhere; for example in Miramont de Guyenne on Monday and in Eymet (6 KM) on Thursday all through the year.
In July and August in Miramont, Eymet and many of the villages around don't miss the famous night-time farmers markets where you can buy local produce to be enjoyed on large tables in the village market places . You'll meet all kinds of people (french and foreigners), resident or on holiday.
