Take a Peek Inside the Pop-Up Apartment in the Eiffel Tower
It floats 57 meters (about 187 feet) above ground.
This is the vacation rental to end all vacation rentals: an Eiffel Tower apartment with spectacular views of Paris and a stylish design.To celebrate UEFA Euro 2016 in France, the European soccer tournament held every four years, HomeAway hosted a contest in which 150,000 people entered to win a night in its pop-up Eiffel Tower apartment. Four winners were chosen after they answered the prompt, “What would you do if the HomeAway Eiffel Tower Apartment was all yours for a night?” The winners get to bring five people with them and will enjoy dinner and breakfast in the apartment and other French-inspired activities. After their stay, they’ll get to spend three more nights in another Parisian vacation rental.
The unique accommodation was created by French designer Benoit Leleu in less than 48 hours in an event space on the first floor of the Eiffel Tower. The apartment has two bedrooms, a living area, and an urban greenhouse.
Although the contest is now closed, HomeAway is giving away 500 free tickets a day to visit the space and go to the top of the Eiffel Tower—you can either enter in person at the HomeAway booth in front of the Eiffel Tower, or check it out online.
