Correns is a small village on the Argens river in the Var, 10 km north of Brignoles. It's a quiet little Beyond village, with just a few sights for the visitor, a single café in the center and the minimum of shops for the local inhabitants.
The few sights include medieval arched passages, some cobblestone streets, and an iron campanlile on the stone tower of "Le Collet".
