Hôtel Les Hautes Roches
Rising up over the banks of the royal river just a few minutes from the centre of Tours, an 18th century manor house nestled against a cliff is lit up by the Loire Valley's gentle light. From the moment you arrive, the hotel personnel's welcome is as simple and warm as the surroundings. It is this unique atmosphere at the Hautes Roches hotel that transforms every moment of your stay into a remarkable experience.
The hotel has 14 rooms, all facing south and overlooking the meandering Loire river. Twelve rooms are sculpted into the rock, the 2 others are situated on the first floor of the manor house. It is only natural that in such an unusual environment, every room must be unique. Unique in terms of the care and attention paid to the decor where high-quality materials and the rock create subtle harmonies, but also the unique characteristics created by a living space carved into the rock: calm, comfort and above all, originality. It was the passion of one builder, Philippe Mollard, that lead to the renovation of these caves that once belonged to the Marmoutier Abbey. After a long period of renovation the dormitories initially reserved for the monks were transformed and became part of the Relais & Chateaux family in 1991. From that moment on the Hautes Roches hotel has retained its title as France's leading luxury Troglodytic hotel.
At the intimate gastronomic restaurant located in "la gentilhommière," Didier Edon proposes a traditional, whilst at the same time bold, cuisine, inspired by seafood.
