place to be
Its our first time to rent a chalet for our vacation and we really enjoy it. This chalet is state of the art!!! you have everything on it. Great view of Mont Blanc and the location is just right for everything. The cleanliness and orderliness is superb not to mention the warm hospitality of the owner. Its really the place you needed to make your vacation worthwhile!!!! and I salut the owner in creating this nice welcoming chalet.
Harmonious Chalet with Mont Blanc View
We are a group of friends, traditionally renting every year a Chalet for our ski holidays: French Vosges, Dolomite Alps, Austrian Alps and this year - French Alps. We enjoyed very much our stay and most of us rated this ski trip as the best so far. Proximity of nice ski slopes, good weather and of course, the Feng Shui Isra Chalet made our holiday excellent. It is very rare, when the owner himself meets and sees off the guests in a holiday house, making a welcoming impression of the house. Enjoying sauna or home cinema, having a dinner in the main room or outside with Mt Blanc view, or falling asleep cuddling a bear in the dorms, anywhere, your attention will be dragged to pleasant, high-quality details. In addition, the fact that the Chalet is powered by solar energy gives a special, harmonious atmosphere. Thanks a lot!
Warm and Welcoming
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
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!
Great time at Isra!!!
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

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.”
