A secluded space inside Paris’ Moulin Rouge, a historic red windmill, will be for rent on Airbnb for just three nights.

The Moulin Rouge was established as a dance hall in 1889, featuring a cabaret show that included the first cancan performance. It was damaged by fire in 1915, but has been restored and is still a performance hall today.

The Airbnb bedroom is in a secluded part of the building and aims to recreate the space as it would have been in its heyday. It is located on the boulevard de Clichy in Paris in Montmartre.

Reservation begins Tuesday at 1 p.m. ET for individual one-night stays for two people on June 13, 20 and 27. It only costs one euro for each night, according to a statement from Airbnb.

The space includes an “opulent boudoir”, complete with a small paper stage in homage to the spirit of the cabaret. A walk-in closet includes vintage suits, perfume and “effusive fan letters”. It also includes a rooftop terrace.

Airbnb guests will enjoy a private tour of the Moulin Rouge and a three-course dinner. They can also meet Claudine Van Den Bergh – the main dancer and Airbnb host – in her dressing room.

Plus, guests get tickets to the Moulin Rouge’s modern show, Féerie, which promises “a fantastical world of feathers and French opulence,” says Airbnb.

The Moulin Rouge is just one of the iconic venues that have been available for short stays. In the suburbs of Chicago, the The McCallister family home from Alone at home was available in December. Barbie’s Malibu Dream House (he is life-size) was also available in 2019.
