OK Ive had this and to be honest the list of things it "could" be is silly.

Firstly I assume as its a 205 that you dont use the vac pump? Only Ive heard that vacuum leaks can cause occasional stalling

Also - do you use the power steering sensor (blue plug) as if this is faulty it can cause revs to drop.

Throttle position sensor can also cause stalling

Cleaning the inlet manifold can also help. Worst case is faulty ECU; there is one guy with a 6 who had to have a remap to stop stalling but he did have a lightened fly wheel.

What cured it for me was replacing the pipe between throttle body and air box as mine had a split in it.
