We decided to treat ourselves to a night at the Relais et Chateau Palazzo Seneca as on off-the-beaten track diversion on our trip from Rome to Tuscany. This may have been the jewel in an otherwise magical trip. The town itself is wonderful, redolent of boar sausage, boar prosciutto, truffles and pecorino. The hotel is understated but luxurious, a haven of comfort and privacy in a tiny walled city. Unfortunately, our kind hostess forgot to tell us about the spa and breakfast which was included in our rates, but we adored our experience anyway. I'll just have to come back to have the total experience! Our lunch at their casual restaurant across the street was disappointing, but dinner at the hotel restaurant Seneca was perhaps the best, most innovative, outstanding food of a food oriented trip. The owner came and chatted with us as we ate outside and told us fascinating details of the region and of the family hotel. I highly recommend eating at the restaurant - the chef is brilliant. We then explored the meadow nestled in the high mountains surrounding Norcia (a challenging drive, but well worth it) and plan to return to the Palazzo Seneca for a longer stay next time and truly explore this amazing region. The hotel is exceptional, the owner is committed to excellence and the staff reflects that commitment. It was a true pleasure to stay there.
