About Us

 Hi, I’m Regina. Thanks for stopping by my Petite Stays website. I am a B&B accommodation expert with 10 years industry experience and I personally seek out and handpick all the very special B&Bs and apartments that you see in this website, in France, Portugal and Australia.

Seeking incredible homes and hosts is my delight and passion ever since a small child being fascinated with (and staring at) different homes, wondering what they were like inside, I have found a job that allows me to GO inside and pick the best and cosiest ones for your B&B travel stay.

I believe in quality intimate human (and cultural) experiences while travelling. Is there any other way?! I regularly inspect and stay in all my B&B host's homes; and this is an essential and crucial part of my service and quality assurance promise to my lovely guests.

Not merely receiving a key, my guests receive a whole new way to ‘Stay’. Like living with family and/or feeling like you have ‘come home’.

I promise to help you select the BEST home for your desired experience, in the finest intimate of ways, using my experience and honest communication about each home and its individual style and practicalities. CLICK HERE to read more about my SERVICE.

In my catalogue of Petite homes you will find classic B&Bs with breakfast service in historic homes, romantic suites, artists studios to self contained private apartments for travelers who wish to live independently. CLICK HERE to read more about the HOMES

All Petite Paris, Portugal and Australian homes are certified, formally registered with their local city councils and accommodation registrars.

I manage my selection of B&B homes intimately and maintain close relationships with all my B&B hosts and apartment owners to ensure guests experience a perfect home stay experience every time. My hosts love the intimate and personal service I offer them too as a more trusting, friendly, flexible and authentic service than the ‘hit n miss’ automated apps and B&B listing platforms. If you are a B&B owner want to be listed on the Petite Stays website please request a B&B Visit with me HERE.

B&Bs services offered by my experienced hosts include: elegant breakfasts, daily cleaning, afternoon teas, concierge services. Many also offer language lessons, art lessons, and cooking lessons, guided walks or other cultural services at request. CLICK HERE to read more about the HOSTS

You really do deserve the Petite Stays B&B experience.

Regina Ferreira BIO - Founder/Director

Founder of Petite Stays, Regina Ferreira is a Paris aficionado, author, traveler and classic bed and breakfast accommodation specialist, born in Madeira Island, Portugal and raised in Sydney, Australia.

Regina launched www.petiteparis.com.au in 2009 as a series of Paris’s finest bed and breakfasts in real family homes, certified by Paris’s only regulatory accommodations board, Hotes Qualite de Paris; where she works with Parisians to create a welcoming and authentic accommodation experience for travellers in their homes.

Today Petite Paris has expanded to greater France and Portugal where Regina has acquired through her strict selection process (through extensive travels and a background in the Travel and Lifestyle PR industry) over 100 'special' homes in Paris, Provence, Lisbon and Porto and now Melbourne, Australia.

Regina’s expertise and niche lies in identifying classic, quality homes and worldly hosts that will offer discerning travelers the intimate and authentic family-style home-stay and cultural immersion experiences they are looking for.  Matching travelers to the right home is Regina's specialty, though the Petite Stays B&B website also allows guests to book independently online.

Petite homes are chic, cozy, fabulous and unlike over-stuffed corporate booking apps and websites that have almost zero touch with their hosts, booking with Petite guarantees hand-picked, on-site inspected B&Bs with professional hosting service. The beds are made special and the breakfast table adorned just for you.

Regina has published 4 Paris Guide eBooks and has a Lisbon and Porto Guide eBook in the works and her Travel writing has been featured in French publication ‘Bonne Vacances’, UK based ‘French Entrée’, and the Australian ‘Vacation & Travel’ Magazine.

Petite Stays B&Bs has featured in Virgin Voyeur, The Australian, Traveller, Sun Herald, Sunday Telegraph, Escape Traveller, Bride to Be, Cosmo Bride, and In Style.

"Cherished traveler, welcome to my B&B world where fabulous and friendly homes await. More than just places to stay, my selection of intimate homes turn holidays into experiences. I have personally handpicked these homes with only the most hospitable sincere hosts by going door-to-door and through word-of-mouth and I have stayed as a guest in every home. With your satisfaction assured, your keys and breakfast are waiting warmly for you on the sun-shined table”
