Daillidet Adobe

Daillidet Adobe


Pierre Hypolite Daillidet built his adobe house in San Luis Obispo with a wine cellar. That the French immigrant gave his home a uniquely French touch, set this house apart from others built in 1853. Daillidet planted grapes and became the Central Coast’s first vintner and a prominent citizen.

The last of his seven children donated the family home to the city of San Luis Obispo in 1953. It still contains the original furnishings and possessions of the family that occupied the adobe for 100 years. The family’s collection of French and English books, including volumes on botany and gardening, line the library bookshelves. There is even some of the eldest daughter’s art work. The patriarch lived until 1909, passing away at the age of 86 and leaving a legacy that continues today.

Hours are limited. Fridays only the gardens are open from 10 a.m. to1 p.m. Winter hours are 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. on the second Sunday of the month. Memorial Day to Labor Day, hours are 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. every Sunday.
