near Palau-del-Vidre, Languedoc-Roussillon-Midi-Pyrénées (France)
The first part follows the coastline and is not difficult, but quite dusty in summertime.
The second part, after Barcelona, is targeted towards the Pyrenees mountains and gets increasingly more difficult, but never hard. Only at the very end is hard part which needs real experience and an appropriate car. I'd even say it is more for experts, so be careful.
But there's ways around it.
Some parts are blocked in summer, because of risk of fire in the summer heat. Mainly thick forests. Be prepared and have some navigation with you to go around those parts. There's plenty of ways around those sections.
You will mainly notice there's hardly been any tourism after you pass Barcelona.
