Its name in the Provençal language is Courrens.
It is at the entry of two gorges: Vallon Sourn and the Bagarède. The village is on the banks of the Argens River. Correns bills itself as "le Premier Village Bio de France." Bio(logique) is the French term for organic, so this means "France's first organic village" where all food and grapes produced are organic. Its main produce is wine.
On August 23, 2014, actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt wed in Correns at Château Miraval in a private, nondenominational wedding.
