Meet Paul Beavis



Is the only man among his group of women. Born and raised in Bristol, he started wandering around Europe after his training as an airplane designer. Eventually he settled in Dordrecht at Fokker. After a number of years he opted for another field of work and trained as a chef with a passion. Working as a chef in Dordrecht, Indonesia and finally in France. He has been working in France since 2001 as a micro entrepreneur. He is the creative builder of Petit Paradis.


Paul has a special bond with dogs, wherever he goes you see his shadow Bras. For a break from work he likes to take Bras on his sailboat for a day on the Etang de Thau in Sète.


If you are lucky you can join him :)

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.
