spectacular views along the coast. roughened road surface - excellent grip (see my avatar). looks like they
just renovated the road for the tourists :-) As usual on roads along
hills you have turns you can overlook - others you can't. do it
around mid-day. then you have the least traffic. lots of bikers there.
one fixed speed trap before Cassis. police I have not seen.

Spectacular view along the clifs from Marseiile to La Ciotat, following the coast on a small but impeccable road with lots of cool sight seeing spots.

This nice route rises out of Marseille and travels past the pictureaque Cassis on the Med coast, very scenic with a couple of very nice corners, a bit blind in places and can have some tourist traffic, but mostly very good.
