An overnight stay in the world’s most iconic landmark? Oui!
Vacation rental marketplace HomeAway has just announced a contest that will give four lucky winners and their guests the unique opportunity to stay the night in Paris’ Eiffel Tower during the UEFA EURO 2016 soccer tournament this summer.
This marks the first time in history anyone will be invited to catch some zzz’s in the structure, and French interior designer Benoit Leleu has partnered with HomeAway to make sure the space, which will take up the first level of the tower, is magnifique. Fans will also be given the chance to help shape the design elements of the apartment with a #EiffelTowerAllYours crowdsourcing campaign that will be hosted by HomeAway’s social media channels.
The 2,000-square-foot accommodation will feature separate bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, and lounging area with views of Arc de Triomphe, the Grand Palais and Sacre Coeur on Montmartre. Winners will be able to invite up to five guests to share this experience, and the overnight stays will take place June 23, June 28, July 4 and July 8.
To add icing on top of the cake (or butter on top of the croissant?), the vacation package will also include a special gourmet dinner for guests, along with three additional nights in the City of Light at a luxurious HomeAway vacation rental and round-trip transportation.
To enter the contest, go to HomeAway and answer the question, “What would you do if the HomeAway Eiffel Tower Apartment was all yours for a night?” Entries will be accepted now through May 31 in the US (global entries, check rules for dates). Winners will be announced on June 10. Bonne chance!
