Built by the Bourn dynasty in the late 1800s, the estate is beautifully restored and open to the public. We visited the building first and were reminded of Downton Abbey. The English Garden is just phenomenal. I have never seen a garden arranged so well....More

We had the misfortune of visiting Filoli on one of the hottest days of the year. However, months later, my wife and I still talk about our visit. The mansion is nice but what makes this place unforgettable is the garden. We especially loved the...More
