About us

Petite B&Bs is a boutique catalogue of professionally handpicked and unique Bed & Breakfasts in family homes as well as private apartments in Paris, Lisbon and Porto.

We personally seek out and select only the best local homes of charming and authentic family style, with endearing hosts who are very welcoming, experienced and professional, providing quality and tailored care and services. Overall Petite B&B homes and hosts offer travelers a memorable and intimate cultural immersion experience. 

Classic Bed & breakfasts offer traditional services such as daily breakfast service, itinerary planning, afternoon teas and cleaning. 

Private apartments are real homes given up by locals so guests can live independently and like a local in a genuine home environment. Hosts in this case live nearby for full service and support whenever needed. 

Handpicked by B&B accommodation expert and Australian resident Regina Ferreira, only quality homes with friendly, experienced and dedicated hosts are selected, following a strict Bed and Breakfast ‘Quality of Charter’ defined by the Paris Tourism Bureau and official Hotes de Chambre B&B Association.

Petite B&B hosts offer special and professional spaces; hospitable service; welcome you like family; and spend time communicating and sharing city secrets and insider advice; and in some cases offer guided walks or other social services for a complete cultural immersion experience.

Petite B&Bs launched in 2009 as ‘Petite Paris’, and has received national recognition in multiple leading publications: Virgin Voyeur, The Australian, ESCAPE Traveler, Sun Herald, Sunday Telegraph, Bride to Be, Cosmo Bride, and In Style. (links to press page)

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.

Regina has published 4 Paris Guide eBooks and 1 Lisbon Guide eBook and her Travel writing has been featured in French publication ‘Bonne Vacances’, UK based ‘French Entrée’, and the Australian ‘Vacation & Travel’ Magazine.

Petite Paris 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”
