Sabbatical Artist of life Dropout Experiment

The Dropout Experiment


If you are curious about what it is like to „live“ on El Hierro, you can check it out with us. You don‘t have to abandon everything to find out whether life on El Hierro would be a future prospect for you.

Of course, everyone experiences the difference between living on El Hierro and being on vacation on this island differently and in their own personal way.

For people who are bringing their “job“ with them and want to work from their new office, this factor naturally makes a difference. Time commitments and possibly also workloads are part of your everyday life here.

The advantage is that you bring familiar routines and support structures with you. And this can make it easier to settle in and put down roots.

For people who are financially independent during this time of their drop-out experiment, a space of beauty and tranquility opens up. If you want to be active, you can visit the many beautiful places on the island, go hiking and swimming and meet new people. This is quite easy here and is an unexpected surprise for many “newcomers“. It even works without any knowledge of Spanish. Or you can use the time to advance projects and do further training.

At Finca la Paz, you live in your own cozy and lovingly furnished house. The atmosphere is characterized by soothing tranquility, a wide view over the ocean and the presence of sensitive and attentive people.

We offer you practical support to help you find your way around the island. Meditations in silence and movement take place regularly on the finca. There is also a whole range of counseling and therapeutic offers.

If you like gardening or would like to try it out, you can plant your own patch of earth during your time on the island.
