Agnantia means to observe, to look at something beautiful from a distance or a great height. Myra Sarris, the owner of Agnantia, came across the name – and those of the rooms (including “Heliophotos”, “Photopereichyto” and “Anemarpasto”) when she was reading Homer’s “Iliad” and “Odyssey” in a modern Greek translation by the great Nikos Kazantzakis.
The apartments and suites are on three levels: the Junior and Master Suites on the second floor, the Superior Apartments on the first floor and the Standard Apartments on the ground floor with their stone patios, all with a unique view.
The suites have seven-metre-high wooden ceilings and hand-crafted iron beds with or without a canopy, designed by Myra. The sophisticated style, romantic touches, wooden Venetian furniture, wall cabinets with wine glasses, elegant Laura Ashley fixtures, superior Coco Mat mattresses and pillows, and Korres natural beauty products, make for perfect hospitality with modern amenities.

All this, together with the discreet friendliness and personal attention of the owners, ensuring superb hospitality in all areas, gives Agnantia its unique character. Agnantia, on the island of Kefalonia, is a favourite destination for experienced travellers from all over the world.
I worked as a jewelry dealer, earthenware painter and I had a successful partnership with a consulting office for 10 years, until I decided to become involved with the hospitality industry. I am, one could say, a self-educated hostess.
I have two amazing children; Marina was born in 1985 and Nicolas in 1994. Following her studies at the Economics University of Piraeus and her MSc at Glasgow’s Strathclyde University in international Marketing, Marina contributes to Agnantia with her knowledge. Nikos studies at the Department of Mechanical Engineering Aeronautics, in Patras.
My life revolves around my two beloved children, Marina and Nikos, my two male pet cats, Bono and Yugi, my job and my hobbies such as painting, reading, volunteering for stray dogs and cats and updating from weblogs.
Agnantia was a great dream of me as the idea of communicating with and hosting people was a life wish. I am blessed, firstly with my lovely family and secondly with my job which I love and relish. My philosophy is: every guest who chooses Agnantia is an honor for me. Therefore my duty is to provide all that constitutes an unforgettable summer holiday.
I love to bake cakes, Greek pies, jams, biscuits and generally to cook homemade treats for my guests. Marina loves to collect special information on the area and Kefalonia and we feel so happy when guests find these useful. We’ll be very happy to offer you our hospitality!
Everything happens for a reason…
