The pretty little village of Le Trayas is a peaceful place to stay, blissfully untouristy, midway between St Raphael and Cannes at the highest point of the Corniche de l’Esterel. Most of the village is situated on the hillside above the N98 and the railway and it has a post office and a few local shops.
