HomeAway, the vacation rental service and sponsor of UEFA Euro 2016, have unveiled the first ever apartment to open up in the Eiffel Tower, just in time for the European soccer championship.
The temporary living space – which will be hosting competition winners for one month only – was put together by French interior designer Benoît Leleu, who transformed a conference room in the French landmark in less than 48 hours.
Taking inspiration from the Parisian Haussmann style combined with modern touches, Leleu created a living area, an urban greenhouse, and two bedrooms all featuring furnishings by Italian design house, Lago.
The soccer-themed apartment sits 187 feet off the ground and thanks to its floor-to-ceiling windows, enjoys views of the city, the Grand Palais, the Arc de Triomphe and the Seine River.
“For over a decade, HomeAway has brought loved ones together to create unforgettable experiences in whole home vacation rentals in more than 190 countries,” said Brian Sharples, co-founder and CEO of HomeAway in a press release. “Now we present this unprecedented Eiffel Tower history-making adventure, guaranteed to provide the most epic vacation memories of a lifetime.”
The competition – in which entrants were asked to answer what they would do if the Eiffel Tower apartment was theirs for a night – is now closed.
