OK Jennifer I am searching……

Lot-et-Garonne is part of the current region of Nouvelle Aquitaine  and is surrounded by other  departments called The Lot, and Tarnet Garonne, also Gers, Landes, Gironde and the Dordogne  .

The north of the department is composed of limestone hills. Between Lot et Garonne, there is a plateau carved by many valleys. In the west of the department, the Landes Forest is planted in sand.
