Always wanted to get a glimpse into the world of French opulence and glamour?
A new Airbnb opportunity is offering a handful of individuals exactly that.
For the first time ever, the Moulin Rouge windmill will be opening its doors to guests.
The legendary Parisian landmark will be available to book for an overnight stay – with a secret room inside designed to transport guests back in time, to the late 19th century.
It’s never been open to the public before, so the Belle Époque-inspired boudoir is extra special.
Available for just $1 per night, guests can enjoy a night at the secluded room inside the windmill, as well as backstage access to the theatre, a French three-course meal and the best seats for the Moulin Rouge’s acclaimed show Féerie.
To get guests in the cabaret spirit, the room will be filled with art nouveau features – including a miniature paper stage – a dressing area with glamorous accessories, and a private rooftop terrace complete with garden furniture from the time period.
Lead dancer Claudine Van Den Bergh will open the doors to the hideaway and will host three individual one-night stays, for two guests each, on June 13, 20 and 27.
`Attending a show at the Moulin Rouge offers an escape from the everyday and an incredible immersion into the glamour and grandeur of French Music Hall,’ says Claudine Van Den Bergh.
‘The Belle Époque-inspired interior of our much loved windmill will transport guests to the era from which this timeless cabaret emerged.’
Anyone looking to request these exclusive stays can do so via the Airbnb website, on Tuesday May 17 from 6pm.
