It’s one thing to take in the picturesque views of Paris from the Eiffel Tower.
But could you imagine taking in the sights of the city from your own personal bedroom in the Eiffel Tower?
Vacation rental service HomeAway is giving four lucky people the chance to win a night in the Eiffel Tower (each of whom will be able to bring 5 guests along with them) in a company-run competition as part of its sponsorship of this summer’s UEFA Euro Cup — and to say this is a once in a lifetime opportunity is an understatement.
The lucky winners will be the first to ever have the chance to sleep inside the iconic 129-year-old structure where they will have a makeshift bedroom and personal living space on the tower’s first floor for the special occasion.
The winners will also receive a vacation package that includes a three-night stay elsewhere in the city, round-trip transportation costs, and tickets to a Euro Cup soccer match.
In order to win, contest entrants must tell a panel of judges what they would do in the Eiffel Tower accommodations if they win — which seems more than fair considering they could let you stay in one of the world’s most iconic structures.
Starting today, travelers can apply online to win the all-expense-paid trip alongside their five favourite people — could you imagine throwing your bachelorette party in the Eiffel Tower?
“HomeAway is all about helping travelers make amazing vacation memories, so of course we thought of the Eiffel Tower as the ideal spot to make the most unforgettable vacation memory of all for some lucky travelers,” said CEO and Co-Founder Brian Sharples.
“We’re also making a bit of history, as no tourist has ever gotten to sleep inside before. Many of our travelers fall in love with the home as much as the destination and we think this is probably the most special ‘home’ we’ve had the privilege of opening to our customers.”
