The classic style 'Home Stay' or 'Guest house' of yesteryear is a residential family home owned and occupied by the owner/s whereby a private bedroom or entire suite is offered to a foreign guest. While guests are essentially staying in the home with the owner, Petite Stays homes have a specific element of 'boutique' feel, atmosphere and service that assures guests will feel very much hosted and looked after like any professional accommodation service, just in a much more valuable, intimate and familiar way.

We do firmly and lovingly caution that these are REAL homes, not generic accommodations. As lived-in and pre-loved homes guests should expect the comfort of a home that is 'not perfect' and comes with the charm and character of a home with scratches here and there on family heirlooms and furniture, family photos etc  ie if you want hotel perfection with not a scratch in sight, our service is perhaps not for you. Though our homes are always impeccably presented and perfect in their own pre-loved right.

Petite Stays B&B home exudes an atmosphere in which both guest and host can best enjoy a sense of association and fellowship. Unless notified to the contrary (in our listing descriptions), you will remain the sole visitor to the property. Viewed as an invited and eagerly awaited guest, rather than as a paying customer, you will derive far more from the Petite Stays Bed & Breakfast service than any other accommodation service.

All Paris, Portugal and Australian Bed and Breakfasts found on our online catalogue of unique homes, have been personally handpicked by Founder Regina Ferreira, selected for their qualities of comfort and tidiness, beautiful and unique interiors and style, pleasing surroundings, practical locations, safety, and the warmth and friendly personalities and professionalism of their hosts. Private apartments are also offered by real local residents who vacate for guests entire private use for a cultural immersion experience. In these cases B&B services are still provided such as breakfast delivered and hosts live in the same building, street or village, contactable anytime.
