A garden for all seasons

Nestled in the heart of the Wakitipu Basin, Queenstown and surrounded by majestic snow covered mountains lies Chantecler, a 40 acre property that includes 12 acres of mature gardens. Chantecler has been “themed” to ensure visitors have a special experience.

The Gardens

The English garden contains almost 1000 Rhododendrons and azaleas as well as Magnolias,Camellias, Hostas, Hellebores and exotic large trees. Around the house is a formal garden with Topiaries, roses(over 300 of them), perennials, sculptures and fountain. Around the pool is a Mediterranean  garden.

The large Asian garden has  a few hundred Japanese Maples and Ornamental Cherry trees with cascading waterfall and pond - in late Spring masses of Peonies burst into colour.

The NZ native garden is large and contains a huge variety of indigenous plants - a stream and two ponds flow through the garden. The Meadow garden has almost an acre of wildflowers and perennial beds as well as a picking garden.

Of course no garden would be complete without a vegetable patch and orchard - and a field of English lavender.
