What is the availability and cost of household help, and what types of help are typically employed by expatriates?
Very reasonable. 10-15 euros/hour. - May 2016
Available. Due to the economical situation, many people are unemployed, and though they have a good educational level, even academic degrees, they are willing to work as a cleaner or nanny. Prices per hour range between 6 and 10 Euro. It's ridiculous but a fact: you pay much more for a cleaner than for a nanny! - Jul 2014
There are a few cleaning ladies, that will charge you from 5 to 12 Euros an hour. Ours speak fluent English! She charges 5. - Aug 2011

I don't know. Don't think anyone can afford it. - Mar 2011
I hear it's not cheap or easy to obtain. - Jun 2010
