Stemnitsa, Arkadia

Colours and colourful shapes. Rich in beauty and antitheses. Mountains and valleys, canyons and rivers, forests and farmed fields, archaeological sites and Byzantine monasteries, all reside on the historical soils of Arcadia, the heart of the Peloponnesus.
Very close to ancient Olympia, between Byzantine treasures and archeological sites, the arcadian mountain traveler has the opportunity to choose between many activities and pleasurable surprises in every step.
Being a unique arcadian jewel itself, Trikolonion Country is strategically positioned to provide comfort, quiet and action too.
In Arcadia you can:

  • Visit the museum of hydropower in Dimitsana.
  • Marvel at the ancient sanctuary of Epikourius Apollon (built by Ictinus, the architect of the Athenian Parthenon) and ancient Olympia, birthplace of the Olympic Games.
  • Visit the old castle perched above the village of Karitaina, built by a French feudal lord in 1245. It was a strategic stronghold during the Greek rebellion in 1826.
  • Visit river Lousios, enjoying a swim and crossing the canyons which surround the Byzantine monasteries, exploring the forest labyrinths of mountain Mainalo with 4×4 vehicles accompanied by experienced drivers, swimming into the rivers and underneath waterfalls, or try river rafting, a popular sport in the area.
  • Experience the absolute relaxation and comfort of our hotel, resting on the comfortable sofas in front of the large fireplace.

Arcadia, the heart of the Peloponnesus, will surely win a place in your heart.
