It's a Peugeot UO-8 from roughly 1977-1978. It was an entry-level road bike. They're really common and not particularly valuable, but you'll read that lots of people find them to be a comfortable ride. (I have a UO-8 myself and like it.) You can find them under $100 every once in while. Commonly in the $100-150 range.
Being as old as it is, I'd strongly suggest a complete mechanical once-over. If the original 36-year-old grease is still in the bottom bracket, headset, and wheel hubs, it's almost certainly all dried out now and doing nothing to protect the bearings, races, and cones.
