payment by credit card in gites on the Podiensis

Time of past OR future Camino
2022 Primitivo to Muxia and Finisterre
The last thread on this topic that I see is from several years ago. What is the current situation for payment by credit cards in gites along the Chemin Le Puy? I've been studying the Cicerone guide, which often does not include the Cr symbol and wonder if that's accurate and most don't accept credit cards. That would mean carrying quite bit of cash from day to day or frequent ATM withdrawals. Thanks for the advice.

It's still very much cash or French checks only. Credit cards are pretty much only accepted in restaurants and hotels and not in the gîtes d'étape.

Walked the Chemin Le Puy in May this year, we found definitely cash required in gites

Walked it last year and cash was required in almost all places. Lots of ATM’s along the way and carrying the cash turned out not to be a big deal.
