About Sabbaticals

What is a Sabbatical?

A Sabbatical is a temporary break from work which can last between three and 12 months. It is a tried and tested way for employees to counteract the stress involved in their job. A temporary change of scene can relieve stress and take the pressure off, while preventing burnout.


The word “sabbat” can be translated as “to stop” or “to look inside”. The positive impact of taking a temporary break was well known as far back as biblical times. If you are finding this impossible to fit into your day-to-day, the sabbaticals we provide will provide the perfect backdrop for an effective break. Focusing on nature will leave you more relaxed, more mindful and, above all, the recipient of some unforgettable experiences.
