Question about Peugeot 405
Without knowing more details, you have the classic signs of a worn CV joint on one of the driveshafts. The noise will be loudest when steering at full lock away from the side with the noise.
It's a straightforward repair and within the capabilities of any competent DIY mechanic especially if equipped with a Haynes Manual.
The cost is dependent upon where you are in the world and whether you use new parts, salvaged parts and whether you DIY or get a mechanic. Where I live (London, England) and brand new joint costs about £35 but I can buy a complete salvaged driveshaft for about £25.
Fitting the complete driveshaft is a bit quicker and easier IMHO. Note that if you have ABS you MUST buy the correct part, but you can use an ABS compatible driveshaft or CV joint on a non-ABS 106.
A professional mechanic should take no more than an hour to do the job unless further work is found to be necessary.

Usually that sound is associated with CV axles. The price for the repair depends on your part prices and your local labor rates. Usually, in my area, CV axles are about $150 per side at the cheapest and prices just go up from there depending on the vehicle.
Of course it could be as simple as a piece pf trash wrapped around a shaft hitting an undercar component when the wheels are turned. Have it diagnosed as CV axles before you replace them. Many shops will diagnose noises for free or very cheap in hopes of gettin your business. If they do charge for a diagnosis on something like this, make sure they will waive the fee if you have the repair performed there. This kind of diagnosis should only take the technician a few minutes to perform.
