Review of our 2023 season

Sylvie Superhote

For our 2nd year, we had the pleasure to be nominated again “Super Hosts” by AirBnB !

We thank all our guests of the 2023 season who gave us 5/5 for all criteria.

Price / Quality ratio

We had a really pleasant stay in Sylvie’s bed & breakfast. The room and bathroom were nice and clean, and the breakfast was very good, with a personal touch. Quiet location and fantastic view of the beautiful garden and swimming pool, and surrounded by beautiful views of the mountains and landscape around the Vence region. Sylvie and her husband are warm hosts, with professional and friendly service. They give us great tips and information on where to go for a day trip, and all the information was printed out for us. I can wholeheartedly recommend this place.

Elisabeth & Oyvind [Norway] – May 2023

We had a very pleasant stay with Sylvie and André. We had the studio which is very well equipped, spacious, very clean, with great amenities (Weber barbecue…). The hosts are very welcoming. Very good breakfasts. We will come back !

Sara & Raphaël [France] – May 2023

You will undoubtedly love your stay in the Red Room. You will be charmed by all the little touches. Sylvie and André are dedicated and warm hosts in addition to being fabulous tourist guides! The breakfasts, the swimming pool, the comfort of the room, the cleanliness, everything is top notch! We highly recommend this accommodation!

Yann & Jessica [Canada] – May 2023

More than perfect! BRAVO for the welcome and the conviviality, the decoration, the high-end services. We will come back to spend our holidays there.

Marianne &  Rodolphe, Agathe [France] – May 2023

Magnificent accommodation with a great breakfast and many little special features that made our stay sweet from the start. Sylvie and André are very attentive, considerate and above all kind hosts. With Aiko, the dog, we also had a lot of fun. We had a completely enjoyable week and can only recommend the accommodation. There is nothing to complain about and everything is exactly as described. Thank you very much Sylvie & André, we will come back with pleasure!

Barbara [Germany] – June 2023

Sylvie and André are really friendly hosts. We felt very comfortable from the first moment. The accommodation is nicely decorated. The garden and swimming pool are perfect for relaxing. Aiko, the house dog, also puts you in a good mood every day. Sylvie spoils her guests every day with a superb breakfast – all the products and specialties she serves are local. For this, both have good advice on excursions and restaurant visits. We will come back with pleasure.

Steffen [Germany] – June 2023

Thank you very much for your welcome, we had an excellent holiday with you. Looking forward to seeing you again next time!

Guifeng & Shuiwang – 桂风与水旺 [China] – June 2023

The place is magnificent, as are the hosts André and Sylvie. The Studio has everything you need for a perfect vacation: comfortable, spacious and fully equipped kitchen, luxurious bathroom. On the private terrace you can even find a grill. The swimming pool and the garden with high-end deckchairs invite you to hours of relaxation after a breakfast which certainly deserves 11/10! Sylvie and André are perfect hosts: very friendly and knowledgeable, extremely helpful with restaurant and tour recommendations, friendly but discreet. But our favorite family member was Aiko, their dog. We will definitely come back.

Sabine & Jörg [Germany] – June 2023

Thank you very much for this wonderful vacation in your heavenly place called SmartAzur. We immediately felt at home. Your advice for our many visits was the best and really useful. We hope to return very soon. The children will miss Aiko very much. We wish you the best!

Silke & Odyssefs, Emilio, Sophie & Laura [Germany] – June 2023

Many thanks to you both for your welcome. We will keep excellent memories of our stay with you. What great tourist and taste discoveries in your region thanks to your wise advice. Your guest rooms are magnificent and your breakfasts are very good. Don’t change anything!

Carinne & Pascal [Belgium] – June 2023

The hosts are very welcoming, the apartment is very well equipped, there are also lots of toys/books for children. A place about 15 km from Nice, a good location for excursions along the French Riviera!

Katarzyna  [Poland] – June 2023

What an incredibly nice accommodation. Every day there was a delicious breakfast ready for us and we could start leisurely. We had the studio on the side of the house. A privacy-friendly place with a super nice bed and everything you need to cook a meal. Even for our one year old son there were all sorts of lovely toys for by the pool, the beach and a push cart in the garden. They had a good time. The owner Sylvie gave us good advice for discovering the region. For example, we went to the national park, visited a castle and we were conveniently located on the sandy beach of Juan les Pins. The last night, Sylvie and André prepared a delicious dinner for us. Really love it! Nothing was too much for the owners. So helpful, relaxed and comfortable. We have never seen him before in an Airbnb accommodation. We think it would be good to book again next year.

Vera & Peter [Netherlands] – July 2023

Superb host and hostess, very accommodating to our needs. The location is amazing, quiet and relaxing. Ideal for families!

Giuseppe, Lori & Josef [Tennessee-USA] – July 2023

This was an excellent accommodation that offers everything you need. The hosts are extremely helpful and welcoming, encouraging their guests to mingle and enjoy each other’s experiences, creating a wonderful and friendly atmosphere, although this is not required. Aiko, the family dog is also extremely friendly and loves to play. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and well located for the mountains or the coast with many villages to explore.

Helen & Nigel [Great Britain] – July 2023

Our second stay with André and Sylvie only confirmed the impression we had a year earlier: the kindness, availability and valuable advice of the hosts helped to enhance our stay in this magnificent property. Sharing moments with them is always a pleasure. We had the opportunity to dine at the table d’hôtes this year and the meal was simply perfect: a combination of refined cuisine and the discovery of local recipes. A big thank you to André and Sylvie!

Claire & Charlie [France] – July 2023

Oasis of luxury and tranquility with a phenomenal breakfast! Great place to spend your vacation. Warm owners who immediately make you feel at home. We stayed in the studio, where you have your own kitchen, in addition to the bathroom and a terrace. Everything is impeccably clean and everything has really been thought of and made available to you. Our 13 year old daughter slept in the Blue Room next door and loved it too. A private bathroom, private refrigerator already stocked with delicious cold drinks and treats upon arrival. This was our second stay here and while it’s always exciting to know if the second time is as good as the first, we can only say that it was! Everything is perfect, but what makes this B&B fantastic are the owners Sylvie and André. They are there when you need them, organize things if you want, give you good advice and fun historical facts to make you enjoy this area and your vacation a little more.

Nicole & Taco, Jasmijn  [Netherlands] – July 2023

It was so nice to read our original review from last year, where we said we couldn’t wait to come back – and here we are with the whole family by our side! We have been dreaming of returning since we left and our visit to your magnificent home did not disappoint! Everything we remembered so warmly – your welcome, your kindness, your attention to our girls (and your patience with them!), your fantastic recommendations, your exceptional breakfasts and your simply fantastic accommodation were all so perfect this this time than the last.
We enjoyed the wineries, restaurants, walks and even the dentists you recommended! Everything was thought of and we felt very well taken care of. Plus, the girls loved Aiko and threw the ball to him from the pool (when he was ready, of course!).
The second stay was just as great as the first. Here is the third for me!

Rebecca & Murray, Natalie & Martin, Maia & Eva [Angleterre] – September 2023

If you ever wondered what the benchmark for a “superhost” could be, Sylvie and André certainly are! A wonderful place, amazing breakfast, stunning studio and super helpful advice are all combined with the friendliness and warm feeling of being very welcome. We want to come back! I can’t recommend enough.

Katja & René [Great Britain] – September 2023

We had such a relaxing and enjoyable stay. Truly top-notch setting, accommodation, food and hosts. We felt and were treated like royalty.

Amanda & Philip [Great Britain] – September 2023

Thank you Sylvie and André for your wonderful welcome and your kindness. We will keep wonderful memories of our stay in your magnificent house, where everything is done for the well-being of your guests, a true haven of peace. Your generosity, your advice and your smiles certainly contributed to the overall success of our stay in your magnificent region. In a nutshell: THANK YOU 🙂

Mireille & Alain [Belgium] – September 2023

We had a wonderful stay at Smart Azur. We had booked the Sudio and the Blue Room. The rooms are large, there is enough space and nothing was missing. Sylvie & André are perfect hosts. – always helpful and super friendly. The breakfast was delicious and Sylvie surprised us with regional delicacies every morning. The beautiful garden with pool offers great relaxation and invites you to do nothing for a day. The location is good base for visiting various towns and villages in the area. Here too, Sylvie & André give vry good suggestions and tips. And not forgetting Aiko, the sweetest dog I ever met ! We felt very welcome from the first minute and would be happy to come back.

Beautiful garden, great swimming pool !

We enjoyed our stay very much! We felt very welcome by the engaged host. The rooms are of a high standard and very clean(!), the garden beautiful and the swimming pool brilliant. We couldn’t have wished for better! The breakfast served every morning was delicious and prepared with high quality products and homemade jam etc. We will return !

Christina & Bo [Denmark] – Jul. 2022


A stay out of time

Everything is there to make you feel at home, from the quality of the breakfast to the cleanliness of the rooms while passing by the outdoor swimming pool area under the song of the cicadas.

Thanks to Sylvie & André (and Maelle!) for their warm welcome, their sympathy throughout the stay, as well as their valuable advice on visits to the region.

Claire & Charlie [France] – Aug. 2022


Everything was perfect !

Everything was perfect. The setting is sumptuous: the magnificent house and garden, the very pretty and very functional “red” bedroom with its storage cupboard, its office, its pretty bathroom. The decoration is refined. The breakfast is delicious with a wide variety of sweet and savory options. Finally Sylvie and André are very welcoming and very discreet also to allow you to appreciate the setting in complete serenity.

Melanie [France] – Oct. 2022


Just perfect

André and Sylvie are courteous hosts who will spare no effort to make you feel at home. What a beautiful place and what a joy to stay there. Everything from the swimming pool to the sumptuous breakfast was just perfect.

Monique & Carel [Netherlands] – Sept. 2022


As good as in the best hotels!

This B&B in a beautiful villa is recommended in all areas. The quality of bedding and breakfasts were phenomenal. Every day varied local specialities, fresh fruit juices, delicious homemade jams, etc. A large swimming pool, beautiful deckchairs, advice for visiting the attractions of the region, or choosing and booking restaurants, ordering pizzas… Sylvie and André really do everything to ensure that you have a carefree holiday. And Aiko the dog comes by from time to time to check that you are well! In summary, a very pleasant stay.

Nicole & Taco [Netherlands] – Aug. 2022


Thank you so much

We wanted to spend 4 calm and relaxing days which Sylvie and her family made possible for us. The property is really very nice, very clean and the swimming pool was a dream, we felt very comfortable, Sylvie and her family are very kind and welcoming and they made our stay very pleasant. Thank you very much for this.

Christine & Andreas [Austria] – Jul. 2022


An amazing place

Can you give six stars? SmartAzur is the most fantastic place you can imagine. Sometimes pictures don’t tell you the truth. But SmartAzur is actually as good as the pictures and description promise. We felt very lucky to find this amazing place. The room was immaculate with a first class bathroom. Everything is new and every detail has been taken care of. The view is breathtaking from the large terrace and the beautiful infinity pool. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast with fresh bread, cakes, local cheese, homemade jam, fruit salad, eggs and much more. But the best are the hosts Sylvie and André. They are extremely nice and friendly – and they take great care of you. Thanks ! We stayed three nights – but would love to stay here forever!

Janne & Claus [Denmark] – Sept. 2022


Exceptional !

This is paradise with a perfect host family. Extremely supportive in all dimensions.

Luna & Daniel [Germany] – July 2022


A big Thank You !

One word to sum up our stay: excellent. The house, the view, the swimming pool, the rooms, the tailor-made breakfast, very discreet, Sylvie and André have thought of everything. Thank you very much for pampering us.

Denise [France] – Jun. 2022


The Art of Life

“An immersion in nature

Discoveries, culture

An ideal temperature

Not to mention the jams!

No frills or gilding

But charming hosts with sure tastes

And the sea not far away

More than a stay, it’s an adventure

It’s the art of living at SmartAzur”


Veronique & Jean-Marc [France] – May 2022


Do not hesitate to book!

Sylvie and André are the best hosts we have ever met – we think they have a special gift of hospitality that made us feel so welcome and loved. Everything is on top – the atmosphere, the rooms, the swimming pool, the parking lot, the calm and the cleanliness – do not hesitate to book.

Inge & Hans-Erik [Denmark] – Sep 2022


Perfect stay !

Perfect stay! Superb house, little touches everywhere, Sylvie and André have really thought of everything for our comfort. They are a lovely couple, the breakfast discussions by the pool were very pleasant. Excellent breakfast by the way, pastries, squeezed oranges, fresh fruit salad, a different specialty every morning… Thank you again for your welcome, we can’t wait to come back!

Marie [France] – Sept. 2022


An amazing treat !!

I can’t say enough good things about our stay with Sylvie and André! My husband and I stayed for a week with our 2 very young daughters and it was an amazing treat. They had thought of everything, including little touches for the girls like stuffed animals, coloring books, buckets and shovels to take to the beach. For us adults the place was fully stocked with everything we could possibly need. The studio was the perfect size, sparkling clean, with all the amenities you would expect and more. The private deck was beautiful and we enjoyed spending time there with family when we weren’t sitting by the gorgeous pool, which was equipped with toys and floats. Our daughters loved Sylvie and André and our eldest daughter adored their dog, Aiko, who was a sweet and friendly dog. As hosts they were kind, generous and present but never imposing. The perfect balance. The house and gardens are just beautiful and we enjoyed being there. When we wanted to go out, Sylvie had lots of relevant suggestions – from restaurants to towns and even aquariums for the kids, everything was perfect. The vacation would have been nice no matter where we went, but thanks to the warmth and friendliness of our two hosts, we had an utterly fantastic experience. We are already planning to return next year and can’t wait!
