“Tradional with comfort and love”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

We stayed at Mpelleiko for two night and wished we could have stayed longer... The rooms are clean and very nice. Nena does evertything to make you feel at home. Nenas breakfast are homemade and very tastefull, a perfect start of the day!
Nena also arranged a cooking class for us, The children collected the herbs and vegetables from the garden and together we made a tradional Greek dinner. An evening we will never forget.

If, like us after several days of travel in Greece, you will want to have an opportunity to stop in a restful place, discuss your impressions and begin to unleash some, at least, of the questions that have filled your mind, you should try Hotel Mpelleiko and its delightful owner, Nena.

Mpelleiko means ‘bell maker’, and Nena’s ancestor, a bell maker, moved to Stemnitsa five hundred years ago. When her grandparents died, Nena gave up her career as a high school physics teacher to transform the family home into the present guesthouse. This traditional house is made of stone and wood, with spacious and comfortably furnished rooms and bathrooms, beautiful views over the rest of the village and the valley, and a well-tended garden in which to relax in the sun. Nena’s hospitality is warm and straightforward, and her homemade country breakfast is just a starting point. She keeps a good selection of guidebooks and maps of the region and is happy to advise about how to make the most of what is to be seen and experienced. The Folk Museum in the village is a very good presentation of the traditional way of life in a mountain village as well as the home of a wealthy family. Stemnitsa is also an ideal base from which to make a day trip to ancient Olympia.

Nena was very patient and engaged with our questions about contemporary Greece. She helped us to understand what it means to live in the present, surrounded by so much evidence of both glorious and turbulent eras of history.

A beautifull b&b and Nena was very friendly: super breakfast, usefull tips and a place where you feel at home immediately. Stemnitsa is a beautifull village and from here you can make easily a trip to Olimpia.

I can say a lot about the fantastic accommodation which is a truly amazing old house, impeccably restored and tastefully decorated! What puts it over the top is the hosting of Ms. Nena herself who is amazingly hospitable and helpful.
Sitting in the dinning room, eating breakfast made from home grown products, overlooking the beautiful village of Stemnitsa is an experience in itself.
I would go again in the blink of an eye, allowing for more days just for this ... thank you Nena.

Visiting relatives from long ago in a neighboring village we stayed in this great guest house. Nena, the owner, who grew up in this house long time ago has done a great job turning this house into a very nice guest house with lots of original details from the region, She took really good care of us advising us where to go and how to drive. And in the morning she prepared us a fabulous breakfast.

Mpelleiko is certainly one of the best guest houses I have ever stayed in my life. Nena has converted her grandparents house into this amazing guest house with all the comforts and everything you could possibly need. Nena is a hospitable and friendly woman that made our stay very special in her place, she makes the best breakfast (using local organic products) and she was very helpful giving us tips on things to do in the area. The guest house is beautifully decorated with nice views and the patios are great with nice plants and flowers. Nena thanks a lot again for the hospitality, staying at the guest house was the highlight of our trip and we will definitely come back.

It is difficult to believe that the ecstatic reviews are genuine until you arrive and sample Nena's hospitality. Mplelleiko is a traditional house built of stone and wood, perched high on the hill, with beautiful views, above the stunning little town of Stemnitsa. The spring flowers, the ancient monasteries (still manned by monks), the unspoiltness, the locals, the quiet, the walks, the Folk Museum are all wonderful. However it is Nena who makes it all come together with her warmth, generosity and kindness. She looked after us unstintingly: our room and bathroom combined comfort and charm, we had a lovely private terrace, the wi-fi connection was very useful, and Nena even went to the trouble of coming to fetch us from the town centre (although we could have easily found the way unaided). The house is full of books and maps. As a proper local, with excellent English, Nena was a huge help advising on what to do and where to go. Importantly to greedy guests like us, she prepared and served us delicious and enormous breakfasts (home made jam/local honey, hot frittata, yoghurt, cake, her own delicious bread and much more), while we sat far too long talking: Nena creates an atmosphere that makes friendships easy and our fellow travellers proved excellent company. The house had all the comforts of home and more - we enjoyed our visit enormously. An added bonus was the Gerousian bar in the village square, (5 minutes walk down the hill along stone alleys), run by a charming young couple, where we played backgammon and sat, eating delicious snacks under the acacia trees. The neighbouring restaurant (the only one open) served us simple but excellent local cuisine, at a very modest price. And I haven't even mentioned Nena's adorable dog......
