Les Hautes Roches is a really pretty old monastery that sits on the Loire river and has been turned into a luxury hotel. Twelve of the 15 rooms are tucked into troglodyte caves, so your chances of staying in one are good. The hotel bar is also in a cave, so you can have your drinks on the rocks while surrounded by rocks.
