Maine-et-Loire is a department in west-central France in the Pays de la Loire region. Originally the department was called Mayenne-et-Loire, but its name was changed to Maine-et-Loire in 1791 - Maine being the name of the former province.

The department has a varied landscape, with forested ranges of low-hills in the south and north separated by the valley of the Loire. The highest point is Colline des Gardes - only 689 feet/210m above sea-level.

The area has many navigable rivers such as the Loire, Sarthe, Mayenne, Loir, and Authion.
