Lafox is a commune in the Lot-et-Garonne department in south-western France.

Geography[edit]

It lies in the Garonne valley on the N113, the road from Bordeaux to Toulouse, to the east of Agen. It is connected to Agen by both the N113 and a cycle path beside the canal.

The Séoune forms most of the commune's north-eastern border, flows west-southwestward through the middle of the commune, forms part of its western border, then flows into the Garonne, which forms the commune's southern border.
