The botanic garden. The garden is personally supervised by the owner, a botanic enthusiast, and has been planted with special care for the alternation of the leaves colors and the flowering periods during the seasons. The accommodations and structures of Villa Le Nespole are located in the middle of an old loquat trees garden of 10,000 m2 that belongs to the property. Nowadays the loquat trees grown in the area but their main local contribution is environmental and aesthetic: the loquat is in fact appreciated worldwide as an ornamental evergreen plant with its long dark leaves, in addition for its delicious fruit.
Aiming at enriching the biodiversity of the garden, without reducing the loquat trees, the owners of Villa Le Nespole have first created several roof gardens on the various terraces and balconies of the Main House.
Around the main pool they have then created the large collection of exotic palms native to Australia, Florida, Madagascar and Mexico: four Ravanee rivularis around the Jacuzzi pool and then Arcontophenix alexandrae, Bismarckia nobilis, Noedypsis decaryi (Triangle palm), Sabal palmetto, Macrozamia moorei, Dasylirion etc. The botanic species are indicated by tags.
