WE OPENED ISRA ON 14th FEB 07: - HERE ARE A SELECTION OF COMMENTS......
16th-23rd June 2007. Thank you so much for providing such wonderful accomodation in an absolutely beautiful location. We all feel refreshed & rejuvinated & had a thoroughly enjoyable time, (the 'Nikken filtered & reorganised' water was great by the way). We hope to return. Ian, Helen & Anne.---
3rd- 13th April 2007. Seven of us stayed over since the 3rd. We all had a fantastic time in your beautiful chalet. We have spent the last 5 years out here at Easter & this has been the best! We loved the views across & round the valley & the peace thoughout the day. Thank you. Pete, Darren & Tom ---
We enjoyed Isra immensely: -especially the sauna, with the fantastic music & the stone floored shower! Great skiing, friendly people; -I hope to return. Many Thanks Joseph, Mathew & Karen. (Uk youth ski team)

Super chalet !
This place is great ! Adam Firth and his team put lots of effort and heart blood into this chalet. Even during rainy days we really enjoyed our vacation. Also worth mentioning: The perfect service provided by the chalet management (Astrid).
Bottom line: really worth the money !
We loved it!
In few words - this is WHY it is an amazing place:
-Welcome by Adam and his follow up on anything we wished
-Transport cards included to Chamonix - train station just 15min away from chalet
-Facilities incl. kids pool, BBQ, kitchen. Amazing number of Nespresso coffee capsules for coffee lovers! We loved Barn, too - book all if you want to enjoy the entire complex
-Table tennis in garage - high quality. We have played 2-3 hours per day
-Closest Supermaket (Carrefour) - 15 min drive towards Chamonix. Local shop 10 min. walking distance
We are already missing this place and will definitely come back!
We have stayed with the party of 7 adults and 7 kids (3 new borns) and celebrated our 40th birthdays!
My family and I have been searching for a cozy get away for quite some time, and we found just that at Isra Chalet! Every morning we would wake up to the stunning panoramic views of the Mont Blanc, and every night, we would watch high definition movies in 5.1 surround sound in the private home theater. It was just the perfect place for the family. Large and Spacious, we had the whole place to ourselves. Not to mention the sauna, the boot heater, the ping-pong table, and the fully-equiped kitchen.
Finally, Adam was a great host. He made sure the snow was cleared from the steps, and that everything went smooth for us!
I highly recommend this place!
SEJOUR EN FAMILLE DANS L'APPARTEMENT DU CHALET
Nous avons passé une semaine idéale, dans l'appartement du chalet. L'accueil est irréprochable et nous tenons à remercier tout particulièrement M. Firth pour sa gentillesse et son sens de l'hospitalité. L'appartement lui même est très agréable, confortable et aménagé avec gout. La terrasse "privée" donne sur le Mont Blanc, ce qui ajoute à la beauté du site. Si vous aimez le calme, les paysages grandioses des Alpes et les randonnées, c'est l'endroit rêvé, car de nombreux itinéraires partent du village de Servoz. Le soucis du respect de l'environnement et la conception même du chalet ajoutent encore à la quiétude du lieu...
An Amazing & Relaxing Chalet!
The ISRA Eco-Chalet is truly an amazing and relaxing accommodation experience. My wife and I spent 5 days enjoying the comforts of the well designed, smart technology and eco friendly luxurious chalet. The chalet itself was immaculate and very tastefully appointed. It was also very well equipped with everything you would possibly need for cooking a large meal for family to hair dryers in the bathroom and a modern washer and dryer. The owner Adam greeted us upon our arrival to show us all of the features of the chalet to ensure we made the best of our stay. This is no ordinary holiday rental. The small details made it special...fresh -cut flowers throughout the living & dining rooms, flavored espresso caps provided for the gourmet espresso machine, and relaxing spa music and aromatherapy in the sauna room. The ISRA Eco-Chalet is located on a hill in a beautiful small village called Servoz and only 12 minutes from downtown Chamonix. It's the perfect location for privacy, but close enough to all the excitement of a world class resort town. The ISRA Eco-Chalet is an excellent choice. The owner and management were wonderful to deal with and they go out of their way to make sure your holiday is special. We will definitely return!
Summer Vacation 2009
We had a wonderful stay in the chalet. This is a great place to relax with stunning views of Mont Blanc especially at sunset. The chalet is fully equipped and has everything one needs for a relaxing stay. Thanks to Astrid and Adam for the warm welcome. We will definitely recommend the chalet to friends.
From the Owner
“I had Isra Eco-Chalet and Spa purpose build to my specifications. The land that Isra Chalet is built on found me: each time, driving down the road from Chamonix, there was a piece of hillside above Servoz that always had sun shining on and this is where Isra now stands. The inspiration to build a place to welcome visitors came after a year of walking on the land and meditating there. The idea developed from drawing made in a few minutes after a year of visiting: this initial sketch 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.”
