About Lars Godell

I'm a well-traveled, well-educated, wine-loving European with a Norwegian passport, with more than 21 years of telecom industry experience. After a University of Chicago MBA I have further nourished my curiosity by living in the diverse but wonderful cities of Amsterdam and Belgrade, as well as in my home town Oslo. I have the experience of owning or renting apartments in all these countries, triggering an appreciation of good quality and design. After more than 20 visits to Montalcino in less than the two years it took to complete the renovation and to make the apartment available for rental, I now enjoy the company of and invaluable help from some nice local friends in Montalcino. Both I and my very well-connected local network of friends are aware of the needs of quality-conscious international travelers. Valuable and constructive feedback from very satisfied guests collected during the first rental season (2014) has led to some apartment improvements and adjustments for the 2015 rental season.

Lars Godell purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Lars Godell chose Montalcino

As a serious wine-lover and in love with Tuscany since my first visit in 2000, the choice of Montalcino was easy. The number one reason for ending up in Montalcino is the wonderful Brunello wine, and after a complete apartment renovation job since 2011 I have realized my old dream of having a local wine cellar (unfortunately, access to the wine cellar is not available as part of rentals; I can just help you with advice on where to get the best deals and advice on sampling and buying wine). The spectacular views from the roof terrace was the number one reason for choosing this particular apartment inside Montalcino. I have rented and stayed in nice places in the Tuscan countryside since 2000 but I chose to be inside the town walls of Montalcino also for some important convenience reasons: Being able to walk to the bakery and grocery store, and being able to walk home after a nice lunch or dinner with some great wine. There are no taxis in the Tuscan countryside or smaller towns.

What makes this apartment unique

Relaxing on the terrace with a glass of wine, enjoying the unique view of the town, Crete Senesi, and Val d'Orcia. Walking home from a nice lunch or dinner without worrying driving under the influence. Fetching grocery and deli supplies in a minute.

Gorgeous apartment with stunning views in the center of town

  • 5 of 5

Everything was perfect from the moment we had arrived. We were greeted by the local property manager, Mauro, who was very kind, courteous and helpful during our entire stay. The apartment was spotless, kitchen fully stocked, and beds were very comfortable. It was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for more. Prior to our stay, Lars had sent us a comprehensive guide to Montalcino, which was extremely helpful in planning our trip. We hope to stay here again in the future.

A wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment that has been restored using high quality materials while maintaining the historic charm of its building. It is in an excellent location just off the town’s Main Street. The bedrooms have good beds that feature quality, Northern European linens, and the bathrooms have all the modern conveniences. Montalcino is a magical town to use as a base to explore the hill towns of Tuscany. We were often greeted by locals on the streets and treated warmly by many shopkeepers, making us feel very welcome during our weeklong stay. Owner Lars provided excellent recommendations about wineries and restaurants, and his local contact, Mauro, was great. We highly recommend this apartment.

Beautiful apartment with views in Montalcino

  • 5 of 5

5 female friends stayed in the apartment in late October - it has been recently renovated and the kitchen and bathrooms are very nice and up-to-date. Plenty of space for all of us with 3 bedrooms and two living areas. Very clean, nice linens, comfortable beds. But, the main attraction of the apartment is the balcony with amazing views of the Tuscan countryside and beautiful sunsets! A wonderful place to enjoy a bottle of wine and soak in the views!

Perfect location for your stay in beautiful Montalcino

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this beautifully appointed villa in the heart of Montalcino during our trip to Tuscany in September. The location is perfect and the views of the Tuscan countryside from the roof top balcony are not to be missed! Very spacious with plenty of room to relax and enjoy an amazing Brunello from one of the many local wineries. Chefs kitchen is a dream. The villa has 3 large bedrooms, and 2 beautiful bathrooms! Shopping and many great restaurants are just a short walk away. The owner Lars Godell was great to work with. He provided us with great information on Montalcino and it’s many local restaurants, shops. He also gave us a great contact for a private driving service that was excellent. I would highly recommend this property for your stay in Montalcino. It certainly was a highlight of our 2 weeks in Italy.

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay in Montalcino and it did not disappoint. We absolutely loved it. The apartment is just like the pictures represent and even better. The pictures can't describe the views from the terrace for the early morning sunrises or the relaxed evening dinners or glasses of wine. Quiet but yet in the middle of everything that is Montalcino. You can smell the pancetta and pane being prepared by the downtown shops early in the morning from the terrace. Perfect.

The apartment has been recently updated and they did a wonderful job. It's updated but yet still rustic and traditional. The property manager that met us on site was super accommodating and responded instantly to texts for information about the apartment or restaurant recommendations. Overall, a great experience and will be going back in 12 to 18 months for an extended stay. Thanks Lars for opening your home to us.

Visit any of the 250+ local wineries plus wine bars to taste the famous Brunello di Montalcino wine. Enjoy some great Tuscan food and wine in the town's many restaurants. Walk through the charming medieval hilltop town and visit its many nice shops, selling local produce like wine, meat products, and honey as well as artisan products, and try locally made ice cream from the gelaterias. Enjoy the wonderful views of the famous south Tuscan countryside from the 16th century fortress and step inside a local museum or church for some traditional culture. Or just have a coffee or glass of wine in Piazza del Popolo to watch life pass by. Explore the famous spas in the neighboring town of Bagno Vignoni (25 minutes away) or go for a hike or bike ride through some truly enchanting countryside. Try out the beach and seafood opportunities in Castiglione della Pescaia (75 minutes away) or enjoy the outdoor swimming pools in Buonconvento and Bagno Vignoni (20-25 minutes away). Visit the famous 9th century Sant' Antimo abbey (15 minutes away) or explore charming Renaissance towns like Montepulciano (45 minutes away) and Pienza (30 minutes away). The latter also doubles as the center for the Tuscany pecorino (sheep milk) cheese production. There are excellent shopping opportunities at the Val di Chiana outlet village (45 minutes away) or The Mall, perhaps Italy's best designer outlet village (90 minutes away). And there's always Siena (45 minutes away), the best preserved medieval city in at least Tuscany and with a great atmosphere. Other Tuscan gems like Chianti, San Gimignano, and Florence are 70-90 minutes away.
