Correns (French pronunciation: ​[kɔʁɑ̃s]; Occitan: Correnç) is a commune in the Var department in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region in southeastern France.

Its name in the Provençal language is Courrens. The geographic position of the village is almost in the middle of the linking "autoroute" A8 from Aix-en-Provence to Cannes, only about 10 kilometers in the north.

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 (the) "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 product is wine.

Popular culture[edit]

From January to July 1979, English progressive rock group Pink Floyd recorded part of their double studio album The Wall at the Studio Miraval located in Correns.[citation needed]

On August 23, 2014, actors Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt wed in Correns at Château Miraval in a private, nondenominational wedding.[3]
