A vacation at Palazzo Seneca in Umbria is much more than a hotel stay — you’ll be cosseted in a 16th-century palace that has been under the loving care of the Bianconi family since 1850. Skillfully restored by local artisans, this stately home welcomes you with 24 individually appointed rooms; farm-to-table cuisine utilizes fresh herbs from the garden and pecorino cheese aged in the cellar. Peruse ancient texts in the library or play tennis; with activities ranging from Umbrian cooking classes to visiting restaurant suppliers to horseback riding and truffle hunting, you’ll never lack things to do.

Palazzo Seneca - At Home in an Umbrian Palace

A house in an Umbrian palace: this is the atmosphere you live in in this charming residence of the sixteenth century, that re-opens its doors in Norcia, in the heart of Umbria, after a careful restoring. Fusion of design and tradition, simplicity and quality, this is the secret of this new elegant project promoted and realized by Vincenzo and Federico Bianconi, the last generation of a family who has been offering Hospitality and Foodservice since 1850. The skilled restoration, the research of unique materials and objects, along with the work of the best Umbrian craftsmen, have made Palazzo Seneca a unique destination in its genre. Please do not call us “hotel”. 

The Bianconi Family

Our family has handed down the passion for hospitality and foodservice from father to son. The Palazzo Seneca project represents the evolution of 150 years tradition, of our studies, experiences and researches carried out throughout Italy and worldwide. A house in an Umbrian Palace, this is not a slogan, it is rather a way of thinking, projecting, hosting, living this elegant residence of the sixteenth century. We have collected tradition, design, simplicity, genuine feeling and creativity in order to let you experience a new Umbrian tradition. We welcome you to make your stay with us memorable. Vincenzo and Federico Bianconi Rooms

Our rooms combine generosity and love for details. Materials, shapes and noble colours give each room and each suite a personal and exclusive charm . Tradition, in perfect harmony with environment and service, will satisfy all your expectations. In all our rooms an exclusive comfort is provided by the famous Italian-made “Simmons” mattresses, among the best in the world, with one-by-one paper wrapped up springs and an extra small mattress to provide the best comfort. The lamps have been produced by the same company that has provided the lighting of the San Remo festival for years, according to Architect A. Lerwill Bowen’s design. Some paintings have been realized on late 1800 jutes used by the local bakers to leaven bread after long and exciting research, others represent nonfigurative photos taken by a local artist, others belong to the Bianconi family’s collection and show Norcia’s history. In order to let you feel at home, you will be able to prepare yourselves the herb tea that better suits your taste in the privacy of your own room, using your own tea-pot.

Restaurant

The creation of this restaurant represents a gesture of love to our land. In this special environment, in harmony with nature and seasons, we wish to tell you a new gastronomic tradition of Norcia, made of taste, territory, research and innovation. To realize this project we have combined the character, the creativity and the skill of our chef Flavio Faedi, of his brigade, of Mauro Clementi, who welcomes the guests in the dining room, with our 150 years of family experience in foodservice.

Wellness

In the basement of the palace, a mystic silence wraps up the wellness rooms. Ceilings with barrel and groin vaults and old stone floors ideally frame the Sibilla room, where you can enjoy a massage, or the rest room, where you can sip a herb tea made with herbs from the Monti Sibillini National Park. The stone hydro-massage bath for 6 people in a private room is next to the Turkish bath and sauna. All these areas, along with other small rooms, represent a proposal for wellness suitable to this residence.
