About Mary-Gaël TRAMON

I was born in the Lake District of the UK. I travelled a lot with my family when a child, to Guyana and then Sierra Leone. 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 14 years for an 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. I have one daughter, Mary-Gaël: she helps run Isra Chalet by fielding all enquiries, she created our website and she does all the graphics.

Mary-Gaël TRAMON purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Mary-Gaël TRAMON chose Les Houches

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 piece 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.

What makes this chalet unique

Isra Eco-Chalet was designed as a family holiday home. We provide a beautiful 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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

WE OPENED ISRA ON 14th FEB 07: - HERE ARE A SELECTION OF COMMENTS......

Harmonious Chalet with Mont Blanc View

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 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!

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
