Its name in the Provençal language is Courrens. The geografic 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 (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 product is wine.
