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.
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.
