Palazzo Seneca

Palazzo Seneca

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. The fusion of design and tradition, simplicity, and quality, 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 the work of the best Umbrian craftsmen have made Palazzo Seneca a unique destination in its genre. Please do not call them just "hotel."

The owner's family has handed down the passion for hospitality and food service from father to son. The Palazzo Seneca project represents the evolution of 150 years of tradition, studies, experiences, and research 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 to let you experience a new Umbrian tradition. We welcome you to make your stay with us memorable. Vincenzo and Federico Bianconi Rooms.

The rooms combine generosity and love for details. Materials, shapes, and noble colors 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 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 in 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. 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.

The creation of this restaurant represents a gesture of love for their 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 the 2 chefs, of their brigade, who welcomes the guests in the dining room, with 150 years of family experience in foodservice.

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 restroom, 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. Along with other small rooms, all these areas represent a proposal for wellness suitable to this residence.
