My name is Marco. Since 1995 I live with my girlfriend Nandy in Utrecht. In 1996 I started to work as a sculptor in a vaulted cellar on the Oudegracht. After my retirement we decided that we didn't need a large studio anymore and made the studio into a combined workshop, gallery and Airbnb. We think that this is a good combination.
I am looking forward to welcome guests and if desired, I can tell you about the history and culture of the canals and the old city of Utrecht. During my travels, I always loved to be told stories about the area I was staying, so now I like to share my knowledge with other people.
My hobbies are sailing, cycling, mountaineering and traveling.
Creativity is also important to me. I like to keep busy and share my passinons with other people.
