First Al Fresco proposal at La Croix du Vieux Pont - Al Fresco Holidays

Elise, one very lucky lady, was proposed to on her Al Fresco holiday this year, and has kindly shared her story with us. Prepare to say ‘aw!’

“Kevin and I have been together 3 years and had our first baby boy, Arlo, in February. We wanted to take him abroad for our first family holiday so chose the 4* Croix du Vieux Pont in Vic Sur Aisne for our first trip.

“It was a long drive but it meant we had a car when we were there and we could take a lot of Arlo’s things.

“We stayed in a Rossini mobile home and after we had lunch one day on our veranda Kevin said he would get Arlo ready. When he came out of the bedroom, Arlo had a cardigan on and Kevin suggested I take a look under the cardigan to check Arlo’s outfit.

“When I did Arlo was wearing a t-shirt that said ‘Mummy, please will you marry Daddy?’ and there was Kevin, down on one knee with a ring in hand!

“He asked me if I would, I said yes, and that night we went out as a family to celebrate in the site’s Macao Beach bar, which was fantastic.

“I had no idea what Kevin was planning, but it couldn’t have happened in a nicer place and we will always have fond memories of our first family holiday – for many reasons not just the proposal!”

We can’t help feel all romantic reading this and it’s not even Valentine’s Day yet.

Does anyone else have any romantic stories to share?
