Review: The Hotel Les Hautes Roches is carved into the rocks located on a limestone tufa cliff overlooking the Loire.  It is situated in the middle of the Vouvray wine area.  It has been a member of Relais & Châteaux since 1991.

Stuart Clarke Restaurant ReviewThere are 14 rooms, 12 of which are carved out of the rock.

The hotel is a former monastery with troglodytic cave bedrooms.  We chose a south-facing superior cave room that was carved into the rock, with a view of the Loire.
