The village is located on the eastern slope of a valley, which has a small creek to its east. The residential area covers the eastern part of a mountain. Another mountain is located to its west and southeast. Most of the area to the west is deforested. There are forests to the south. It overlooks the Lousios river and its gorge. One can see mountains to the west, the north and the east. Several houses are abandoned. Farmlands are to the north and around the hilltop of Stemnitsa. Its main products are olives and cattle. Fruits and vegetables are not grown due to the steep hills. It has approximately 3 to 5 km of hydro lines. Its main shops and buildings lie along the main road.

Stemnitsa is nested in the mountain range of Mainalon (altitude 1050 m). It is located 45 kilometers southwest of the capital of Arcadia, Tripolis. The village is connected by a road connecting Karytaina, the Greek National Road 76 and Dimitsana (see the Karytaina-Dimitsana Road. The road is narrow and has only one lane within town limits, while it is two-laned outside the village. Greek National Road 74 is about 20 km south. From Tripolis one could drive to Stemnitsa from two different ways, one via the tourist town of Vytina and the historic village of Dimitsana (8 km away from Stemnitsa), or through the mountain of Mainalon. Either route offers views of the Arcadian country side.
