About Adam FIRTH

I was born in the Lake District of the UK, then Lived abroad with my family when a child: -Guyana and then Sierra Leone. As an adult 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, now operating the Falcon 2000 EASy, mainly in Europe, Eastern Europe, sometimes in Africa, the Middle East and occasionally the USA. Before that I flew military airwork missions. My daughter, Mary-Gaël, helps run Isra Chalet, answering all enquiries. She also created our website and does all the graphics.

Adam FIRTH purchased this chalet in 2006

Why Adam FIRTH chose Chamonix - Mont Blanc area

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.

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, sun terraces and a library. Servoz is calm, the children 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.

Beautiful, faultless, perfect :-)

  • 5 of 5

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

Thank you for choosing to come back again to Isra Eco Chalet. Mary-Gaël & Adam.

Beautiful Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Dear Lisa, Thank you for taking the time to give your thoughtful review and praise, I appreciate it and receive it also on behalf of Mary-Gaël and Jennifer. Seeing your family fit in so snugly into Chalet Isra was a real pleasure. We do our utmost to look into every detail and pride ourselves in providing an environment where our visitors feel at home with a sense of deep well-being and relaxation. The Chamonix Valley is a great place for skiing, hiking or outdoor pursuits: - Isra Eco-Chalet offers a fabulous base for action holidays and is also luxurious haven for family members who choose to chill out at home. I have had the chance to choose the land and allow Isra project to settle during a year of reflection. I often sat on the ground where Isra Chalet now stands, then one day I drew a sketch of a chalet. I later found an architect to make that dream become a plan and had it built by Grosset-Janin. I spent the last five years since completion adding details that were already crystal clear to me from the outset but just needed to become manifest. I hope that the end result conveys the inspiration that accompanied each step of the path to what is here now. Please come back to stay again! - Try Isra Eco-Chalet in summer, -it is stunning and we provide our own complimentary home grown biological vegetables. Thank you to all of the family for being such wonderful guests. Adam FIRTH. Owner Isra Eco-Chalet

Agréable séjour dans le mini-loft

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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

Owner's Response: Merci beaucoup Daniel pour cette bonne appréciation. Nous avons été ravis de vous accueillir avec votre groupe pour ce week-end et sommes heureux d'ouvrir notre chalet à des séjours plus courts que d'habitude, pour un long week-end de ski comme celui-ci par exemple. C'est une formule que nous souhaiterions appliquer plus souvent, hors vacances scolaires. Merci aussi pour la remarque sur la qualité du sommeil, c'est vrai que nous avons tout fait pour que nos lits soient les plus confortables possible, et le silence alentour y contribue également ! Et l'architecture intérieure conçue selon le Feng Shui n'y est sans doute pas pour rien non plus. Revenez quand vous le souhaitez ! Nous serions très contents de vous accueillir à nouveau. Bien cordialement, Mary-Gaël Tramon Chalet écologique Isra
