About Jim Sioufi

Jim, Julia (us!) and their four boys live in the farmhouse adjacent to the barns. We have spent the last 6 years lovingly and painstakingly restoring 2 barns and our farmhouse to provide a home and business whilst trying to achieve a healthy balanced lifestyle.

Jim and his boys are keen watersports enthusiasts to say the least, whilst Julia loves to escape on the beautiful coast path. Windsurfing is Jim's main hobby and he is an RYA qualified windsurfing and sailing instructor. He regularly helps to get Fowey's juniors on the water at the Fowey Gallants Sailing Club and at junior windsurfing Team 15 sessions at Polkerris.

Jim Sioufi purchased this barn in 2003

Why Jim Sioufi chose Newquay & St Austell area

We were looking for somewhere with space, views, character, and with some barns to convert into holiday lets, near to Fowey where our children are at school. Luckily, we found West Lampetho - perfect for raising a family with rural quietness, countryside and sea views and less than 3 miles from Fowey - the perfect base for exploring Cornwall. The farmhouse required some serious rennovation prior to us moving in. Then we got on with both barn conversions finishing Violet in 2009 and Primrose in 2012. We are now enjoying welcoming visitors, and the freedom and space that comes with 2.5 acres of land. Living so close to the sea makes most of the year a race to get wetsuits dry before the next water session - be it sailing, surfing, windsurfing or the latest addition - stand-up-paddleboarding.

What makes this barn unique

Living "on-site" we are always on hand to offer advice on everything from beaches, childrens' activities, where to eat, or even pick up the best local pasties!

We are small-scale and offer a personal service, and our properties are genuinely low-energy and eco-friendly.

Julia Sioufi MAR has been a practising reflexologist for over 12 years and you can experience a relaxing treatment in private in your own accommodation or in our farmhouse.

5 Star Holiday Rental

  • 5 of 5

There are two converted barns in what can only be described as Magnificat, both set in a beautiful location which is also a really peaceful place to have a relaxing break, we stayed in Primrose which was out of this world a place you wish was your own, this property wanted for nothing and should be rated five star, the owners Julia and Jim are a really nice couple and really make you feel welcome, I would recommend these properties to couples or families for perfect vacation and look forward to returning hopefully real soon
