ABOUT OUR HOSTS
Petite B&Bs hosts are regular, local, mature citizens’, professionals, creative’s and world travelers, selected for their warm and friendly personalities, professionalism and dedication to the B&B industry and service. They are experienced and have been offering the classic B&B service for at least 10 years and offer guests the opportunity to connect and communicate yet understand guests needs for privacy and offer much discretion. In homes where guests share a bathroom with their host guests can be assured their host will always give them priority use or will not use it while you are in the B&B.
Hosts include artists, theatre directors, interior decorators, antique dealers, actors/actresses, event producers, radio personalities, museum curators, authors, and include families, single hosts or couples within the 40-70 year age bracket.
Our Petite B&B hosts are at all times, aware of our guests agenda, and personal wishes (arrival time, breakfast preferences, information on Paris and France etc) and general and critical guests needs are taken into account such as allergies, physical limitations etc. special requests and special occasions such as honeymoons and birthdays, culinary particulars for breakfast and more.
Travellers are welcomed as friends into the homes of real Parisians or Portuguese natives, with the assurance that they will receive any kind of assistance and advice needed from their host regarding their stay in Paris and its many wonders. Guests also enjoy the freedom of coming and going as they please. Note: Some hosts still have regular jobs and may not be as available to guests, please enquire if you prefer an ‘active’ host or a more ‘reserved’ host.
