Marije van Driem

Marije was born and raised in the east of the Netherlands and studied Business Psychology. In 2002, in search of her roots, she met Paul in the hilly countryside of the Minervois and never left.

Nothing in life is certain, except that you can share love. With the people you meet, with the animals, with nature and with yourself.

Living in Velieux, Marije has learned to live more and more in this sense. Taking care of their three lively daughters and their three horses, in contact with the people she massages, taking care of the nutrition, in contact with the locals, and most of all shaping their wonderful place Petit Paradis and taking care of its visitors.

Feline Beavis

Born March 21, 2008. A connecting happy soul, She loves to go on adventures with her peers, so you can often find her wandering around the village with friends. On her motorcycle or on horseback on her great love Hidalgo. Feline plays very good rugby, likes to work for school and keeps her room super tidy (yes!)

Sara Beavis

Born August 9, 2005. On the front lines, opening doors for her younger sisters. Speaks beautiful Dutch, but easily switches to French and English. Sara has a passion for everything that has to do with horses and especially her own horse Amskar. But also likes to be with friends and thinks and feels a lot. She is now so far that she is slowly spreading her beautiful wings in the world of adulthood.

Amy Beavis

Born on February 24, 2015. We had to wait a while for her. But it was worth it. She is a daily delight for her sisters and parents who are learning to see the world from her uninhibited point of view. Amy was born on a horseback and shares this passion with mom and her sisters. She also enjoys going to school and playing with every child that comes along on our land. With Twix, our dog, as her faithful companion.
