I was born in Cockermouth (near Carlisle) in the Lake District. Since then I travelled a lot with my family: my father worked in mining and we moved to Guyana and then Sierra Leone when I was a child. As an adult I continued to travel, living in Tamil Nadu (South India) for two years and spending most of the last 28 years in France. I was drawn to the mountains and gravitated to the Chamonix Valley where I finally put down roots. I have worked for the last 12 years for a very large American executive jet operator. I fly the Falcon 2000 EASy, mainly in Europe, Eastern Europe and also in Africa, the Middle East and sometimes the USA. Before that I flew military airwork missions for FR Aviation in Bournemouth. I have one daughter, Mary-Gaël: she helps run Isra Chalet by fielding all enquiries.

Mary-Gaël TRAMON purchased this chalet in 2006

I had Isra Eco-Chalet and Spa purpose build to my specifications. The land that Isra Chalet is built on found me: each time I came down the road from Chamonix there was a pience of hillside above Servoz that always had sun shining on it and I ended up buying it! The inspiration to build a place to welcome visitors came to me after a year of walking on the land and meditating there. The idea came in the form of a drawing that I made in a few minutes after a year of visiting: this drawing is what transformed into the finished project. I dreamt of creating a place to welcome families. Isra was conceived as a place of healing and calm. It was designed using Feng-Shui to enhance the initial inspiration and this can be seen in many of the details. Ecology is a strong element of the design too; we use solar panels to supply both hot water as well as underfloor heating. Our spring water is used for watering the organic vegetable garden.

I taylor made Isra Eco-Chalet to welcome families. We provide a beautiful home space where those who may not want to visit the slopes can spend their holidays enjoying a beautiful, sun bathed, healthy environment with plenty to do at home. There is broadband Wi-Fi, a comprehensive media centre, a sauna, table tennis, trampoline, sun terraces and a library. Servoz is calm, the kids can play in the garden and grandparents can take easy walks all around the Isra Chalet while those who wish for more challenging activities go to the Les Houches or Chamonix ski resorts.

WARM AND WELCOMING

  • 5 of 5
We truly enjoyed our stay at Isra Eco-Chalet. It is lovely, clean, and welcoming and served as a wonderful home base for our family trip. Our kids enjoyed running around on the lawn, sleeping in their special "nook" with the teddy bear, and eating family-style meals at the beautiful dining room table overlooking the mountains.

The house is well appointed, as described on the website. This was especially important to us, as we were quite tired after long days of skiing. The last thing we wanted to do was worry about whether we would have the things we needed to prepare a meal! The property manager was helpful and responsive to the few questions we needed help with. This allowed us to enjoy the real purpose of our trip - taking in the breathtaking scenery of Chamonix and spending time with friends and family.

I hope we will be able to visit again!

SUPERB ACCOMMODATION IN WINTER WONDERLAND

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Isra for one week to celebrate our daughter's 21st birthday, and what a week we had!
The chalet is outstanding and catered for our every need and more! There was nothing better than enjoying a sauna in the evening after a day on the slopes with Tartiflette cooking in the oven and a bottle of wine breathing! Followed by a wonderful home cinema experience!
The views from every window are spectacular. The location is excellent, it's only a short drive from the motorway and the local shop which keeps all daily necessities is only a 5minute drive. Adam and his colleagues made our stay extra special with little extra touches especially for the birthday celebrations which were very much appreciated!
All in all we had a fabulous week and would have no hesitation in recommending Isra to anyone looking for a 5* accommodation.
Should we return to the same area in the future Isra would be our only choice!

Owner's Response: Dear Gail,

Thank you for this great review.

Isra Chalets unique location (on the sunny side of the valley) close to Les Houches ski station offers visitors 5 star facilities, calm surroundings, panoramic views of Mont Blanc, proximity of commerces and easy access. You saw us with our winter coat of snow; come in the summer, -it is stunning! We are already out on our mountain bikes, there are communal tennis courts a few hundred metres away, our own table tennis table in the games room and a trampoline in the garden. From August visitors can take advantage of Isra's very own vegetable garden full of organic produce. For Hikers and Bikers, Isra is at the centre of a vast network of alpine trails; no need for the car.

We will always do our best to facilitate any special event or request that you have during your stay and this is an excellent example; -we were able to help because you told us about your daughters 21st birthday beforehand.

We have bought a tree to add to our growing forest at the Scottish Charity "Trees For Life". We do this for each group who stay as our contribution to offset carbon, you can make a dedication on the Isra Trees For Life page (just send us the text and we will have it inserted).

It was a pleasure to have you to stay and we look forward to your family coming back soon.

All the Best

GREAT TIME AT ISRA!!!

  • 5 of 5
Me and 14 friends decided to do a skiing trip and chose Isra Chalet as our home base. Everything was absolutely PERFECT, we couldn't of asked for more. We were not at all crowded and had great evenings with the home cinema, sauna and having nice dinners. Adam, the owner, took care of us from the beginning; the days that it snowed a lot he would come and help us out to clear out the snow, so can't complain there.

I certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to spend a skiing week in the Chamonix area! Thanks Adam & Mary-Gael

Owner's Response: Hola Diego, Hola to all of your numerous friends who shared this wonderful week of fiesta and snow. I have to admit that when I saw 15 twenty one year olds my first response was to read you all Isra Chalets rule book!!! Well you actually left the place spotlessly clean and nothing was broken or damaged. I know that you all had a fantastic time enjoying both the abundant snow and Isra Chalets fantastic sound and multi-media system. Also, congratulations: you are the first guests to have transformed Isra into a "Ski In - Ski Out"chalet, - it was hilarious and fun to share that. It was lovely for Isra staff to welcome 15 adults and a pleasure to see you fitting in so snugly to Isra Eco Chalets spacious accomodation with room to spare. You and your friends were amongst the first to try out our new games room playing table tennis. Thank you for this great review and please come back soon.
