The House of Herbs is a stone villa located in the beautiful village of Methoni. The picturesque village, formerly known as Pedasus, was offered by Agamemnon to Achilles to subdue his rage.
Later it became part of Sparta, gained its independence shortly after and over the years went through a Venetian era. Methoni was so important to the Venetian empire, that they decided to fortify the village, hence the castle of Methoni.
Despite their rule being overthrown by the Turkish Empire, the Venetian elements dominate the scene.
History teaches us that the remarkable settlement was favoured by many rulers, therefore it has been well-nourished throughout the ages. Even now the village is protected by the European Union, safeguarding its original treasures.
