Palazzo Seneca is a lovely Relais & Châteaux hotel that is the true essence of Umbrian hospitality, and which was awarded Virtuoso Hotel of the Year 2017. Owned by the impeccable Bianconi family, the Palazzo Seneca is a warm and inviting grand “home” with just 24 rooms,from which to visit this very special part of Umbria.
Palazzo Seneca is located in the medieval walled city of Norcia, a destination well known for its natural beauty and its prized black truffles. I would recommend exploring Norcia and its spectacular surroundings by slowing one’s pace to match the life of the locals. Stroll the town’s charming streets, stop to taste the delectable prosciutti, salumi and pecorino for which the town is famous.
Take a drive to the spectacular mountains that surround Norcia and the ancient villages dotting the countryside. There is much to do and experience in this Umbrian land but don’t leave Norcia without a truffle hunting excursion into the hills with an expert guide and his astute dogs. Don’t miss the moving chanting by the local Benedictine monks every evening at 7:45pm. Both these experiences will connect you to Norcia and the Palazzo Seneca, which with its genuine hospitality will leave you wanting to return.
Highlights of Palazzo Seneca include:• Family operated boutique 24 room hotel• Take a half day truffle hunting excursion• Don’t miss a visit to the Benedictine Abbey in the center of town, particularly for the evening chanting. Try their beer, it’s very good• A dinner at Michelin Star restaurant, Vespasia is an absolute MUST• Cooking lessons at the Bianconi home are a very special treat• The wellness center at Palazzo Seneca is small but thoughtfully organized and the spa treatments are amazing• The nearby Monti Sibillini National Park has numerous activities for families such as rafting, hiking and mountain biking
"From the point of arrival to the point of departure, the Bianconi family and their staff treat guests like their family." N.C. - Vista Travel
“The Bianconi family doesn’t just own a lovely hotel. They are beautiful people indeed, who care for others less fortunate, love the land where they were born, and take good care of this land.” J.K. - Renshaw Travel
