The Eiffel Tower’s breathtaking apartment

From a conference room on the first floor to a breathtaking apartment in just 48 hours - that is all it took interior designer Benoit Leleu to transform the space into a once in a lifetime opportunity for four lucky winners!

Gustave Eiffel did put a small, secret apartment inside the 984-foot tower but only a few VIP’s such as Thomas Edison ever had the pleasure of experiencing this luxury, now the holiday-rental agency HomeAway has made it possible for a handful of tourists to experience the same lavish lifestyle with an apartment created especially for Euro2016.

HomeAway has outfitted a 2,000-square-foot apartment (not Gustave's) inside the first floor of the Eiffel Tower, which four lucky contestant winners now have access to, for one night each.

The fully functional apartment boasts with a kitchen, two bedrooms, urban greenhouse, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a lounging area. The apartment can comfortably fit several people, with 360-degree views of the city.  Winners had to submit a creative answer to HomeAway’s question: "What would you do if the Eiffel Tower was all yours for a night?"

Each winner, in Paris just in time for the Euro 2016 soccer championships, gets three free additional nights in HomeAway rentals across the city's various districts and can bring up to five guests with them.
