Our Builder, Frankie & the Drogba connection

Frankie is a force to be reckoned with … he gives as good as he gets!

How he’ll get on in Cote d’Ivoire is anyone’s guess, but he’s already ‘au fait’ with Ivorian culture to an extent!

He built a house near Marseille for the world famous footballer Didier Drogba, an Ivorian himself.  However, the house was initially built for another man but rented it to Drogba who loved it so much, he bought it!

So we have the claim to having Drogba’s builder!  Frankie did spend an afternoon talking to Didier about the pool tiles whilst surrounded by an entourage of assistants.

However, this time Frankie will be managing the project & learning from Ivorian builders, bringing in new sustainable ideas & giving it the ‘Drogba’ seal of approval.  Frankie doesn’t cut corners & will ensure that the building is fit for purpose.

Spanish by name, English by birth, German by residence, he also (luckily for us) speaks French!   We can’t wait to realise the project with Drogba’s builder overseeing it all!
