We are an easygoing, unconventional 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 and light housework. 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 basic/rustic open plan, self-contained apartment with living/sleeping area and kitchen, with separate bathroom/shower, with use of patio area and swimming pool. The apartment has it owns kitchen so we do not normally have dinner together with our guests.
