A night at the Opéra Garnier with Airbnb for a pittance, anyone?

In the family of unusual accommodations, I ask for the Palais Garnier of the Paris Opera! Via an Airbnb ad, it will be the scene of an exceptional night, with a five-star program. What is it and how do you become one of the lucky ones? We tell you everything before the opening of reservations on March 1, 2023.

Who has never dreamed of spending the night in a place steeped in history, like the Palais Garnier, jewel of the Paris Opera? Thanks to Airbnb, it's a dream that could well come true.

An exceptional night in the VIP box at the Palais Garnier

Tribute to the protagonist of the novel by Gaston Leroux, follow in the footsteps of Phantom of the Opera for an evening inside the sumptuous Palais Garnier. Transformed into a grandiose room, the VIP box is one of the most exclusive spaces at the Opéra Garnier. It is here, in a red and gilded cocoon, between inlaid furniture, a marble clock and period paintings, that two lucky people will spend an extraordinary night, in the best location to admire the architectural beauty of the Palais Garnier, take a look!


As if that weren't enough, other surprises complete the experience, such as a backstage tour of the Palais Garnier , rarely open to the public. From the incredible private archives of the Opera to the famous underground lake, passing by the prestigious dance studios under the roof, just that!


' My great-grandfather's classic work has inspired so many over the years and moved many audiences around the world, I am delighted to pay homage to him and welcome travelers to the novel's famous setting.' , enthuses Véronique Dubrulle Leroux, great-granddaughter of the author of Phantom of the Opera and host of this Airbnb stay


Added to this is a introduction to ballet with one of the Paris Opera ballet dancers , a exclusive recital given by artists from the Académie de l'Opéra de Paris, accompanied by champagne. But also a dinner in the sumptuous Foyer de la Danse , a historic piece located backstage, where the dancers warm up and rehearse just before the shows, something to mark the spirits forever!


Here's how to book that evening that's almost too good to be true?

Whether you are a fan of Phantom of the Opera or not, you just need to have a verified Airbnb profile, a positive history on the platform and be at least 18 years old. The room will only accommodate two people, no more and the stay will take place on Sunday, July 16, 2023. To have a chance of staying there, you can request to book this night on Wednesday, March 1, 2023, from 6 p.m. CET on airbnb.com/opera . And this overnight stay is offered at 37 euros* , a price defying all competition defined in a nod to the number of the box of honor.

Given the exceptional nature of the places, Airbnb reminds travelers that they will be required to be particularly respectful of the spaces and furniture made available to them. In addition, they will be responsible for their own transport to and from Paris in France. *Plus taxes and fees. This is not a contest.
