Spreading out from the 12th-century Fort Gibron (actually a monastic building adapted and fortified over the years), Correns is a charming if sleepy Haut-Var village straddling the Argens River with a handsome arched bridge. Surrounded by vineyards, wine is Correns' lifeblood. It makes a lovely place to top and stretch your legs, but there are few sights likely to fascinate.
In 1997 the mayor of Correns, on the banks of the River Argens, decided to make the village’s 200 hectares of AOC Côtes de Provence vineyards organic. Local farmers have also since turned organic to produce honey, chicken, eggs, olive oil and goats cheese.
