The Eiffel Tower could soon be your next hotel stay…if you’re lucky.

The vacation rental site HomeAway is giving away one night’s stay in the Parisian landmark, they announced on Instagram. The first floor of the tower will be turned into a one bedroom luxury apartment that accommodates five people.

The company’s CEO Brian Sharples told Mashable the timing was perfect for his company to approach Paris with the seemingly impossible idea. “Paris is promoting the Euro cup as well — this is a really big deal for them,” he said.

“And they want tourists to flock to Paris and feel comfortable in Paris and obviously there have been some incidents in Paris that would cause them to really want to promote their brand as well,” said Sharples of the November’s terrorist attacks in the city, which killed 130.

The only requirement for winning the apartment of a lifetime? Contestants just have to answer the question: “What would you do if the Eiffel Tower was all yours for the night?” And no pressure, but the answer has to fit in Twitter’s signature 140-character length.

The prize also includes extra nights in Paris and full coverage of round trip expenses. In other words: peak vacation goals, people.

And the best part about the trip (you know, besides, the historical landmark-ness of it all)? Breakfast and dinner are included!
