Plenty of tourists visit the Eiffel Tower in Paris every year, but not many can say they’ve made it their vacation home. Next month, four lucky contest winners will have the chance to stay in an apartment on the 300-meter tall landmark’s first floor during the upcoming UEFA Euro 2016 football tournament.
The competition, which opened this week, is being held by vacation rental company HomeAway, which will transform part of the tower into a temporary luxury apartment. Winners will be able to bring five friends and family members and spend one night in the Eiffel Tower, as well as the chance to dine in the tower for dinner and breakfast and appreciate the view. HomeAway will also put up the lucky winners for an extra three nights in one of the company’s Paris vacation rentals. Roundtrip airfare for the winners will be provided by Expedia.
This is the first time that guests have ever been invited to sleep in the Eiffel Tower. HomeAway has hired interior designer Benoit Leleu to create and furnish the one-of-a-kind apartment. Guests will be treated to an amazing view of the city’s historic landmarks in the apartment’s lounge, including the Arc de Triomphe, the Grand Palais, Sacre Coeur on Montmartre and the Seine River.

There are four prizes available, and entering the competition is easy. All you need to do is give a short answer explaining what you would do if the Eiffel Tower apartment were yours for the night, along with your contact information. If you’re interested in this chance of a lifetime (and who wouldn’t be?) you can enter here. You have until the end of May to sign up for a shot at the prize, and the winners will be announced June 10th.
