Story of a Maître de Maison

Can you tell us the story of your property?

Palazzo Seneca was built in the 16th century by the homonymous family from Piedivalle, a town near Preci, whose inhabitants were famous as skilled wood carvers. Palazzo Seneca was the first hotel in Norcia and among the first in Umbria as it opened in the early 1900s. The residence has undergone several changes over time but it still maintains intact, on the ground floor, the features of the vaulted rooms typical of the 16th century. When present to our architect a book with what we loved and didn’t love to have inside our property. 3 highlights: We don’t want to be trendy for one year but elegant forever. We have to find a new Umbrian tradition. At home in an Umbrian Palace.
