CHRISTMAS arrives earlier every year and there is a chance to enjoy a festive treat and help local charities at the Casa Santonja Christmas Fayre on the weekend of 11th and 12th November.
This beautiful mansion house in Beniarbeig is a family home and a popular wedding venue but the grounds and gardens are rarely open to the public.
However, everyone has the chance to see them for themselves between noon and 6pm on 11th November and 11am to 4pm on 12th November.
The fair features more than 50 gift stalls and there will be homemade food and festive treats, together with a cracker full of entertainment, throughout the weekend.
The owners have also agreed to open the private family chapel for guests to light a candle in memory or loved ones; children can visit Santa’s Grotto and write a letter to Father Christmas.
Organiser Ann Martin – pictured with Tony Grande at a Casa Santonja event in April – said the €1 entrance with go to Tony’s Make A Smile; other charities to benefit from the vent will be Help of Denia and the Marina Alta, the Red Cross, podenco and greyhound rescue Tanamara, and Dusty’s Homestead and Hope Restoration Centre.
