Correns is a small farming village located in the countryside behind the glitz and glamour of the Cote d’Azur. The landscape surrounding Correns offers majestic panoramas, lush vegetation, calm waters, hills and cliffs and the birthplace of a richly preserved biodiversity.
Correns has a rustic and timeless charm, steeped in centuries of agriculture and viniculture. But this ancient settlement also has a very special place in modern French history.
