Palazzo Seneca (Norcia-Umbria) voted the best hotel of 2017 by Virtuoso!

Palazzo Seneca (Norcia, Italy) has just received the supreme award at the Virtuoso Travel Week conference in Las Vegas, which brings together the best in luxury hospitality and top-of-the range tourism. The election of this Relais & Châteaux property in Norcia to the rank of Best of the Best rewards the courage and determination of the team at the Palazzo Seneca when it comes to bringing recognition to their region, as it does the duty and mission set for itself by the Bianconi family: “Winning this award is a dream for us and the entire community of Norcia”.

Palazzo Seneca (Norcia-Umbria) voted the best hotel of 2017 by Virtuoso!

The Bianconi family has worked hard to breathe life back into the town and this property that dates back to 1500. By continuing the initiative of their ancestors, who have been here since 1850, Vincenzo and Federico Bianconi have turned this place in their beloved region into a haven of hospitality. It is a unique place that links hospitality to the region, its heritage and its people, telling a story of handing down from generation to generation and ethics: passing on the values of courage, excellence and hospitality. 


Palazzo Seneca, a sense of place. A sense of this place can be found in the interior architecture of the villa, where the know-how of Umbrian artisans is expressed freely in materials such as wood and stone. Every object here tells a story.

Umbria, home to the Vespasia Restaurant. The Palazzo Seneca’s restaurant gets the very best out of this widely praised region. Local products, among which Norcia’s black truffle is king, are the bedrock of the cuisine of the chef Valentino Palmisano, recently awarded a Michelin star, whose words wonderfully sum up the intentions of this property: “The challenge of Norcia has really motivated me in my choices. I’m now ready to challenge myself even more to bring moral redemption and a renaissance to a region that has so much to offer".
