We are an easygoing professional couple (Irish and Spanish) living just 5k outside the city of Granada, in the south of Spain. We can offer short-term accommodation for one or two people in return for help with gardening *or* help with computer/internet stuff. There is a regular bus service - a bus every half hour - to Granada city centre. To cycle takes 20 minutes. We are less than an hour's drive from the Costa Tropical, and less than an hour's drive from the Sierra Nevada Ski Resort (there are regular buses to both locations). The accommodation is a simple, Spanish-style self-contained apartment with living/sleeping area and kitchen, separate bathroom/shower, use of outdoor (but covered) patio area and swimming pool.

We are located in Granada, one of the most historic cities in the world, location of the Alhambra, and epicentre of Flamenco music and dance. Granada is a university city, with a large foreign student population. They come to Granada to study European history, to learn to speak Spanish and explore Spanish culture. There's also a vibrant pub and night club scene here.
