Following a Normandy cider trail is really easy with an app you can download on your phone. The app has been developed by the Clos du Cotentin Tourist Office. It covers a 60km route in the Cotentin which is an area in the north of La Manche region. The towns of Valognes and Saint-Sauveur-le-Vicomte are included. There are 16 stops on the Normandy cider trail and you start in the cider museum in Valognes.
To start learning about the history of cider and how’s it’s made you firstly need to download the free app. It’s called Kit M Manche. You’ll get access to a map and also information about each of the stops. They are called étapes in French. The app gives opening times and also details of any admission costs. Many of the stops are producers and these tend to be free to visit.
You can download the itinerary in advance so you can access it later without an internet connection. Then simply choose the places that you’d like to visit. At the entrance to each site you can access more content via your phone.
