About Filoli

Located just 20 minutes south of San Francisco International Airport, Filoli is recognized as one of the finest remaining country estates of the early 20th century. Built between 1915 and 1917 and set against the dramatic backdrop of the Northern Santa Cruz Mountains, Filoli is an excellent example of the Golden Age of American garden design and country house architecture. A National Trust for Historic Preservation site, Filoli provides filmmakers and photographers a wide variety of venues.
