Regina Ferreira BIO - Founder/Director

Founder of Petite B&Bs, 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 (thanks to extensive travels and background in the Travel and Lifestyle industry) over 150 stellar homes in Paris, Provence, Lisbon and Porto. 

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

Petite homes are chic, cozy, fabulous and unlike over-stuffed corporate websites that have 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.
