  • Filoli is a gem in our community and I go there frequently as a member. Great for all ages. The tulips are beautiful but only last a month or two but the grounds are very well kept and a must see...  more »
  • My experience was magical, loved every inch of these place. The house, the history behind the two families who lived there. Those awesome paintings, house decorations details. And all the gardeners wow just an awesome experience. Paying $22 was nothing comparable to all you can walk and relax too much to enjoy in that historical place.
  • What a wonderful and peaceful place. Make sure you bring a good book to enjoy if coming alone. If with family, a walk through the gorgeous gardens is a must. The house is cozy and lovely. Get your camera ready and take tons of pictures. I truly enjoyed it.
