About our home

We live in Abidjan in the Ivory Coast, in a nice quiet part of town called Riviera Golf which is just 5-10min drive from shops and restaurants. The area around us is mostly residential and pretty quiet and safe, as it is also the area where a lot of the ex-football players and government officials live. We like to bike and walk around the neighbour hood and at about 5min walking there is a golf club, which can be used to play golf, swim (large olympic pool) or have a drink and something to eat.

We have 3 bedrooms, one master (double bed), one guest bedroom (double bed) and a home office / bedroom that has a comfortable double bed pull out coach. In addition to that there is a home office, a home gym, a living room / dining area, the kitchen, the laundry room and the house staff quarter. The house also comes with a nice outside area, small garden, a terrace and a pool. The weather is generally very warm, apart from some rainy periods (mostly in the month of June), so sitting outside for lunch and dinner or pre-drinks is nearly always possible. The house also comes with a night and day guard for the concession (there is 3 other houses) and an electric fence for security.

Speaking somewhat French is essential, as the local level of English is very poor, having some French is very important or if not we can discuss hiring you a local person who can translate for you.

Where is it?


We live in Riviera Golf which is a nice and quiet residential area. The area itself has the local golf club, where you can golf, swim and eat / drink. Otherwise the area itself is mainly residential but everything is about 5-10min drive.

About 5min drive you have a road with various stores, including a large supermarket called Leader Price and a wonderful bakery des Gateau et du Pain. There is a few malls within around 10min drive including Cap Nord and Abidjan Mall that have a variety of stores including supermarkets, pharmacies, clothes stores etc. There is nice restaurant just 5min drive from our place called Bushman Cafe, which is on a lovely roof terrace (part of a hotel) and the food / drink is decent. There is a number of Lebanese restaurants in Zone 4 over the connecting bridge between Riviera and Zone 4. Maquis du Val which is around 10min from our place is also a nice local place with a good food and drinks selection.
