Even if she could easily commute to St. Tropez, to live in Cannes or Antibes would not make economical sense if she is only to work three days a week.  You'll have to find somewhere nearer, either to live or for her work

As above, there is no easy way to get there by train, and to drive from Antibes to Port Grimaud ( not as far as St. Tropez) can take 3hrs one way in August, doesn't seem to matter what time of day!

yes, a difficult one that. Train goes to St Maxim? and ferries are available but i am unsure how regulary they run. Anyway it is 1 1/2 hrs if you are lucky at a minimum. Driving is a big hassel, too much traffic unless you go early (6am) and leave late (8pm). Buy  a boat!

It would be quite impossible to comute by train, as the nearest station to St Tropez is atleast 35 kms from it. You could do it by car, but its a long way and in the summer the drive is likely to be atleast 2 hours each way.
