Palazzo Seneca

Palazzo Seneca offers guests the best in comfort and style, with a range of facilities and services that are second to none. The rooms are spacious and elegantly appointed, with all the modern amenities you would expect from a five-star hotel. And the location is simply unbeatable. The property is just a short walk from Norica┬┤s most famous landmarks. You'll enjoy your stay here!


This charming sixteenth-century house is open for visitors in Norcia. This area is the birthplace of St Benedict. Vincenzo and Federico Bianconi have designed and implemented this elegant hotel project. The Bianconi family has been serving hospitality and food service since 1850. Palazzo Seneca has been a particular destination. This is due to its skilled restoration, unique material, and the hard work of Umbrian artisans.

The family that raised the owner has passed on their passion for hospitality to their sons. The Palazzo Seneca project reflects 150 years of tradition. It is also the culmination of studies, research, and experiences in Italy and the world. This isn't a slogan. It's a way of living, thinking, and enjoying this beautiful residence from the 16th century. To offer you a new Umbrian tradition, the hotel combines simplicity, tradition, creativity, and simple design. They are happy to make your stay memorable.

The rooms blend generosity with a love of details. Every room and suite is unique because of the way they are made. You will find tradition in harmony with your environment and service. Besides, all rooms have the "Simmons" mattress, made in Italy. It's a top-quality mattress, one-of-a-kind, with paper-wrapped springs and a smaller mattress to ensure the highest level of comfort. Also, the lamps are made by the same company which has been lighting the San Remo Festival for years.


The hotel is located right next to the central Piazza San Benedetto. It sits in the middle of Norcia, a city still recovering from the 2016 earthquake. This is a medieval mountain outpost that is home to Saint Benedict. Norcia is famous for its black truffles and heirloom legumes. Besides, the town is just 2.5 hours away from Rome.

It is also just an hour from Umbria's most prestigious hilltop villages. This makes it a favorite stopover for those interested in recharging their souls. Think breathtaking plateau vistas, excellent cuisine using local produce and ingredients, and the slow pace of village living.

Service and Facilities

The staff at Bianconi strikes the perfect balance between being discreet and friendly. Many of them have been with the family for many years. Therefore, no formal reception is provided. But new guests arrive in the same way as old friends. The staff can also arrange special services or excursions to get the cashmere experience.

The candlelit spa is in the historic vaulted cellars. Trained naturopaths staff it. They provide massages and treatments using local ingredients. The stone hot tub, Sauna, and Turkish bath are free to use by guests. You can also enjoy truffle hunting and a Michelin-star restaurant.


Only 24 rooms make up the hotel. They all share the soothing earth colors and natural materials used in their overall design. Every room is unique, as in historic homes. Some rooms have walk-in closets or outdoor balconies. Others offer leather chairs and couches: Simmons spring, memory foam mattresses, and a range of pillows. Besides, the superior room has a wrought iron bed.

The large black or ecru-marble bathrooms combine rain showers. In addition, there are hand-held shower heads with natural bath and body care products.


Executive Chef Valentino Palmisano is a native of Naples. He spent nearly a decade in the top hotels in Asia. These set menus are innovative but deeply rooted in Norcia's local cuisine. Besides, the Chef's Neapolitan heritage reflects the deft touches hinting at his Asian experience. Spaghetti al Pomodoro was a classic dish that was simple yet complex. It is his signature dish. It took six months for him to perfect it.

Moreover, a buffet breakfast is served every morning in the barn-cum-breakfast area. This dining room has views of the countryside. It also opens onto the courtyard for alfresco dining. It features freshly baked cakes, tarts, jams, and a selection of cheeses and other goodies. The staff can also prepare a custom-made omelet. Finally, enjoy lunch in the Granaro del monte and the Vespasia restaurant.


The wellness rooms are located in the basement of this palace. The Sibilla Room has a barrel, groins vaulted ceilings, and old stone floors. There you can also enjoy a massage. There is also the restroom where you can make herbal tea with Monti Sibillini National Park herbs. The Turkish bath and Sauna will be next to the stone hydro-massage tub. Furthermore, all wellness options are suitable for all residences.


The staff is quick to assure that children and their families are welcome. Children under 12 years are free. Babies receive cots for free. Extra beds are also available for older children. Plus, babysitting is available with a local babysitter for a fee. Besides, a child-friendly menu is open at the hotel restaurant.


This five-star hotel offers guests stunning city views, sumptuous accommodations, and impeccable service. Relais & Chateaux Palazzo Seneca is the perfect place to stay. It is an excellent hub for your next stay in Italy!
