“A glorious Umbrian hotel set in an old palazzo. Traditional family-run hospitality melded with modern requirements. A fine restaurant, romantic rooms with four-poster beds, excellent spa and pool. An indulgent spot with bags of character.”

Hotel Review

The ingredients for a perfect hotel are all here at Palazzo Seneca, a historic 16th century mansion in the delightful, sleepy town of Norcia. Brothers Federico and Vincenzo Bianconi, whose family have owned hotels in Norcia since 1850, have put their heart and soul into their new venture, marrying traditional, family run hospitality with modern requirements, such as a spa and interiors that marry local character with contemporary style. The brothers are on hand to help with everything you might wish to do, from rafting and truffle hunting to local gastronomy, also on offer in the fine restaurant Vespasia. A fabulous new addition to Umbrian hotels, highly recommended.

Palazzo Seneca

"The clientele tends towards travellers in the know who want to explore this lesser-known town, its celebrated food and its surrounding countryside from an unexpectedly sophisticated hotel."
