Beautiful, faultless, perfect :-)
We have stayed at Isra twice now & are due to go back later this year. The chalet is absolutely beautiful and completely spotless! The owner, Adam is lovely as is his daughter Mary-Gael who handles the bookings. Jennifer (neighbour) is also great & on hand whenever you need her. We cannot fault the Isra chalet in any way & would highly recommend it. One of the best aspects in the summer is the vegetable garden which we were able to pick from. In the winter, the view is spectacular & the chalet just feels magical. We can't wait to return & we know we will go back year after year! Thank you Adam & Mary-Gael. Daisy & Raphael Sutcliffe x
Isra Eco Chalet promises much and manages to deliver absolutely everything. It is beautifully finished and everything is well thought out to the very finest of details. We booked the entire chalet including apartment and loft for our large, blended family of 2 adult sons with girlfriends and 3 wee ones in the main chalet and it suited our needs perfectly as everyone had their own space and privacy yet could join together at mealtimes or our evenings of viewing films on the cinema screen. It wasn't a great hardship when the skiers and boarders left for a day on slopes and Chris or I stayed at Isra with our youngest. There was plenty of space to play whilst watching the sun rise over the mountains and illuminate and warm the chalet through the huge picture windows. Our little one could play outside on the expansive decking in the pale warmth of the January sun. Immaculate high chair and travel cot plus changing mat and booster step for reaching the handbasin made this a real bonus for parents who often have to 'make do' with tired and less than clean equipment. As owners of a very small person, we felt most welcome because of this.
Adam, the owner greeted us on arrival and showed us round the chalet explaining the ethos of the Feng Shui design. The meticulous thought and attention to detail soon became apparent as we enjoyed the aromatherapy oils, water feature and crystal clear filtered water. The entire complex was faultlessy clean from the kitchen and appliances through to the sauna, showers and bathrooms.
After Adam's initial welcome and assurances that nothing would be too much trouble if we needed to contact him or the chalet manager at any time, the chalet was refreshingly free from endless lists of Do's and Don'ts which made us immediately feel at home and as though he genuinely wanted us to have a wonderful holiday. Be assured, we did.
Agréable séjour dans le mini-loft
Un très agréable séjour sur les hauteurs de Servoz, offrant de magnifiques vues sur le toit de l'Europe, de l'aube au coucher du soleil. Ce coquet studio situé au pied du châlet principal est bien équipé et idéal pour une ou deux personnes. Grande disponibilité des propriétaires qui sont "aux petits soins" avec leur locataires.
A refaire très vite
Un très bonne accueil pour commencer le tour du propriétaire ... Nous étions 11 personnes, le chalet est spacieux, design et traditionnel a la fois, fonctionnel et très bien équipés. Amener juste vos affaires et de quoi remplir le frigo et laisser vous portez car en effet je n'ai jamais aussi bien dormi ailleurs que dans mon lit ... C'est peut être l effet Feng Shui ? Pour résumer c'était parfait ! A recommander chaudement
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.”
