Basic low end Peugeot. If you want more, more pics are needed. Drive side, derailleurs, hubs, brakes.

The decal on the seat tube identifies the type of steel tubing the bike was made from. Carbolite 103 was Peugeot's own brand for high tensile steel tubing. High tensile steel isn't as strong as chromoly or manganese steel alloys that more expensive bikes are built from. Since the steel isn't as strong, the tube walls need to be thicker, which means the bike will be a bit heavier.

The fact that it wasn't a high-end bike doesn't mean it can't be a nice riding bike, though.

Well said, especially the last sentence.

The lugless Carbolite 103 frame with down tube cable stops for stem shifters identifies it as an entry level model, while the decal style places it circa 1983-1985. Beyond this, we'll require additional photos, per CV-6.
