I've never found the pronunciation of any language that I've tried to learn particularly challenging, so I can empathize with being able to pronounce something without it sounding particularly pleasant to you. As far as feeling comfortable (i.e. it not requiring undue effort to produce the correct sounds), that usually just comes with practice. For example, when I started speaking Portuguese, I could produce the sounds correctly, but it did require conscious effort as I was not used to producing those sounds in that order, but with a lot of practice it's become second nature. I've said it elsewhere on UL before, but by my estimate I've spent in the region of 7000 hours at least speaking Portuguese at this point, so that might give you an idea of what I mean by "a lot of practice". If you've spent a similar volume of hours with French (or more) then maybe it's something else that's affecting it (like, possibly the fact you don't particularly like how it sounds may be inhibiting you or something...)
