I've just bought a space saver spare wheel for my C5 as I commute to southern Brittany regularly and don't trust just having a sealant / inflator pump. That's fine except the car has a moulded under boot floor tray with the 'T' shaped pieces but also a 'flat' across the bumper side of the recess that prevents a wheel fitting. As far as I can see from the underside this 'flat' is part of the body shell so can't be altered - does this mean I can only carry the wheel loose in the boot ?

That's strange!   I also have a 2010 C5-X7 tourer and there's a full sized spare wheel when I lift the boot floor.

I think you need to remove the boot liner/floor tray with your bits in to reveal the spare wheel well - this liner is not supplied with cars with a spare wheel. The jack box/insert that goes with a spare wheel fits inside the wheel and is different to yours, so you may also want to get one of those. There is also a part that clips to the floor of the wheel well that allows the wheel to be clamped down.

Thanks for that Paul !

I did start to wonder but it looked a bit bare and 'unfinished' when I looked peeked underneath the liner...
