If your spirit still craves the charm of yesteryears and you’d kill to be transported back to the era gone by – Airbnb now has you covered! The hospitality platform has recently listed a stay that is apparently hidden inside Paris’s Moulin Rouge. Yes, that’s right!
“Sumptuously designed to transport guests back in time to the late 19th century”, the Airbnb will provide guests a peek behind the velvet curtains, including backstage access to the theater, a traditional French three-course meal, the best seats during the Moulin Rouge’s acclaimed show Féerie, and an overnight stay inside the iconic windmill – all for a little over $1.
Commenting on it, lead Moulin Rouge dancer Claudine Van Den Bergh and host for the listing said, “Attending a show at the Moulin Rouge offers an escape from the every day and an incredible immersion into the glamor and grandeur of French Music Hall.”
She further added, “The Belle Époque-inspired interior of our much-loved windmill will transport guests to the era from which this timeless cabaret emerged.” Commenting similarly, French historian Jean-Claude Yon noted:
“The Belle Époque era was a time when French culture and arts flourished – and no landmark is more iconic to that period than the Moulin Rouge. This secret room inside the cabaret’s famous windmill has been designed to take you on an authentic journey back in time to experience the French capital of arts and pleasures during a moment in history.”
Guests will also have access to a boudoir filled with art nouveau features, including a miniature paper stage, a dressing area featuring accessories from the Belle Époque, and a private rooftop terrace complete with a garden furniture during their stay.
Three individual one-night stays can be reserved for up to two guests permitted per night – on June 13, 20, and 27. Bookings will go live on May 17 at Airbnb.com.
