Paris’s newest addition to the vacation rental pool is — not what we expected. In a move of pure un-inhibited, passionate, French-ness, a contest was recently announced with Homeaway.com, makers of that awesome Nick Offerman commercial, and the city of Paris at the helm. The winners of said contest will spend one night in the City of Light’s most famous 129-year-old, 984-foot-tall monument.
The vacation rental service, which has been known to offer up incredible products in the past, is offering a chance to spend a night in the Eiffel Tower to four contestants in a company-run competition as part of its collaboration with this summer’s UEFA Euro cup.
Four lucky winners, along with up to five additional guests each, will sleep on the first level of Paris’ top real-estate location and wake up to views of the city’s most recognizable attractions. The stays in HomeAway’s Eiffel Tower Apartment will take place during multiple dates throughout the summer, with each group of guests enjoying a gourmet dinner created especially for them.
Although a night in the tower is the real prize, the vacation package also includes three additional nights in Paris at carious HomeAway vacation rentals and round-trip transportation. The winners will be announced on June 10, the day the Euro Cup kicks off.
