I did this - from Ouistreham to Cagnes sur Mer - last May. I had never cycled in France and it was great - the roads, drivers, food, wine and most of all the scenery.
I had intended to do it solo and unsupported, credit card touring, not camping, as I did LEJOG, but a friend recommended Peak Tours so I booked with them, and am very glad I did. We had a great group , 21 of us, aged 40 - 84. It took us 14 days and the organisation and support were faultless.
Most were club cyclists and/or keen tourers. I am neither, and the only cycle touring I had done before is LEJOG, as my main cycling is commuting; so any reasonably fit person can do it. I found the hills easier than LEJOG as whilst there is far more climbing the gradients are less and you just get used to spending an hour or two spinning up a climb.
If anyone is thinking of doing it I'd highly recommend it. More detail on my blog:
