Visitors to Surtainville will no doubt know about the house at Mare Du Parc which is brightly lit and decorated every Christmas (as also at Hallowe’en and Easter). Guests who stayed with us just before Christmas sent pictures they had taken.
The lights are on every evening from the beginning of December through to Epiphany (6th January). There is also a small Christmas Crafts market in the garage of the house. All proceeds fro the lights and the crafts go to charity. Well worth a look if in or around Surtainville in December.
Lots of other houses in the area are similarly lit; and this year the Community of Communes of Les Pieux held a competition, consisting of weekly visits to any house wanting to register. Lots of excellent entries, but we still think the original Christmas House is the best.
