Looks like it could be the auto lights sensor. Would think you should be ab;e to pick one up from a dealer - shouldn't cost too much or try to find a similar car in a scrapyard and pull it off and ask thenm how nuch they want for it. Best to go to a scrapyard that will let you look round and pick the bits yourself though.

The auto lights sensor is up by the rear view mirror so it's not that. I can't quite tell what the thing is in the photograph, you could do with a close-up but for me it looks like somebody has tried to fit an LED warning light!

From my recollections of the two 207s I've had there is nothing in that spot. It just gives access to a screw as far as I can remember.

Meant to mention, it's an easy job to remove the centre vent housing. From there you will have access to the area below whatever it is. This may help you examine it. I changed my centre vent housing on a 207cc GT after badly and clumsily scratching the original and I can assure you there is absolutely bugger all in the space where your object is!

Yeah my 207 had that, I think its a sunlight sensor for the Air Conditioning if I recall correctly. Something to do with the AC working differently If in direct sunlight?

Yes, I have just looked at ours and that sunlight sensor should sit in a trapezoidal shaped bit of black plastic in the centre of the windscreen air vent. I would guess you are looking for a replacement sunlight sensor or its housing.

I believe the sensor up by the rear view mirror is for the Automatic Wipers, not the one for the auto lights.

No, Auto wipers weren't available on the Mk 1 207cc. The auto light sensor was built into the rear view mirror. Maybe they moved it there just for that model. There was nothing were the OP took the photo on my car.

The cover is available from Peugeot for a grand total of 2.42

There are two colours available

Sun Sensor Bracket Nero Part No 8211.XJ
Sun Sensor Bracket Dark Ripple Part No 8211.XH

If you post last 8 of VIN I can double check correct for your car, I used basic 207 to search and it appears to be common on most versions
