About Gillian Crozier

We are Gillian and Brian Crozier and we live in Yorkshire with our 3 sons (well our eldest is at Newcastle university studying mathematics at the moment) and our daughter who range in age from 20 - Argh! - teenagers lol - down to 12 years old. Oh and our Jack Russell - Daisy! Having spent loads of time and money holidaying in this beautiful area of Pernera in other people's villas we decided to buy and share with others a luxury villa of our own. Hope you like it. x :-D

Gillian Crozier purchased this villa in 2010

Why Gillian Crozier chose Pernera

We have fallen in love with Pernera because of the fantastic facilities in the area as well as the hospitable and helpful people. We chose the position of villa Aura because the sun shines on the pool area all day. Perfect! Walk around the corner from our villa and you will be right in the heart of this friendly little Cypriot town with its many restaurants, bars and tavernas. You can be as busy or quiet as you decide. Another 5 minutes walk and you are down at the beach with loads of water sports and activities. Walking 20 minutes along the beautiful wooden boardwalk takes you to the next town of Protaras with a vibrant night life. The best water park ever is also only a 20 minute ride away and our villa is only a 40 minute drive from Larnaca airport.

What makes this villa unique

There is no need to bring anything to villa Aura except yourselves with a minimal amount of clothes! We have everything from the private pool and all its inflatable toys, to TVs, PS2, DVDs, washing machine, dishwasher, cot, baby monitor, pool towels and just 5 mins walk away are the beautiful sandy beaches with many water sports and the new wooden 'promenade' which takes you right along the coastline to Protaras the next lively town. We have a fantastically romantic roof terrace and our pool is in full Cyprus sunshine from dawn until dusk. You can be as peaceful or busy as you like here, with lots of things for the kids to do or you can just chill and people watch with a cool drink.

Accommodation notes: Easy to use remote air-con / heating units and modern remote ceiling fans with dimmer lights for children who like to sleep with night lights on, are in each room along with 3 fitted child safety stair gates and an additional gate out to the pool area for your peace of mind. Villa Aura has an easy to assemble baby travel cot with all necessary bedding, including waterproof mattress cover. We have a high chair, baby monitor, full selection of plastic cutlery and tableware for children. Helpful additions such as pool towels, inflatable pool loungers and toys, as well as water arm bands mean you can pack less to keep your suitcase weights down. Child safety plug covers and safety locks on all doors and windows are another reason to feel secure at our villa. There is no need for travel adapters as Cyprus has the same plugs and voltage as UK. If hiring a car - which is actually not necessary, unless you want to see some sights - in Cyprus you will drive on the same side as the UK. Outside: Villa Aura boasts a fantastic south facing mosaic tiled 8 x 4 m private swimming pool, which is bathed in sunlight from dawn until dusk. There are 8 bronze sun loungers in total which will catch the sun wherever placed around the pool for those who love to sunbathe, with 2 of them on the roof terrace as well as small drinks tables for enjoying a cool beverage in this romantic setting. The outside dining area with its oblong table and 8 matching chairs is a perfect place to eat picnics in the open air - mmm - and there is a parasol to shade from the sun while relaxing by the pool. A delightfully pretty garden on a timed sprinkler system with gorgeous tropical plants like Birds of Paradise adds to the ambience and we have a gas BBQ for those who want to chill at home some days rather than visit local restaurants and tavernas. There is also a useful outside shower perhaps for sandy feet or to rinse off before or after swimming as well as an astroturf strip around the pool for safety. Cleaning / Towels / Linen / Maid service: All towels & bedlinen are included, as well as separate pool towels. You will find cot with all sheets, baby blankets and baby monitor in the wardrobe of bedroom number 3. For 2 week usage mid holiday clean & bedlinen change can be arranged at extra cost. Other: This well equipped villa includes mini vac, ironing board, iron, clothes hanger/dryer with pegs and laundry basket as well as, in the outdoor storage area a large easy sweeper, brushes, mop and bucket and other cleaning equipment

... and relax

  • 5 of 5

So badly needed a relaxing holiday and Villa Aura delivered just that. Such a quiet location yet just a few minutes from everything you need. The villa was spotlessly clean and comfortable and we just loved the roof terrace for a sundowner and the great pool - especially floating around on a lilo under the warm sun. So glad we found this gem in the lovely resort of Pernera. Would return tomorrow - now there's a thought 😊?

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was really nice as described in the advert, it was well equipped, maintained and clean. It is in a quiet location with all day sun around the pool.

It is short walk to Pernera or a short drive to Protaras, Ayia Napa and local super markets.

Didn't want to come home!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a fabulous two week stay at Villa Aura which is definitely a real home from home but with the added bonus of the fantastic weather and a pool (which we had trouble getting the kids out of!). The villa is really conveniently located with numerous bars, shops and restaurants just round the corner yet the setting is still really peaceful. Gillie was very helpful and responded to any enquiries really quickly. We would highly recommend this villa and will definitely be returning in the future.

Owner's Response: Aww such lovely comments and THANKYOU for the fab review - but yes I agree Nicola and family! I believe our beautiful villa Aura is special with everything you might need for a wonderful stay, as well as being conveniently central, although of course I may be biased ❤. Don't take my word for it - come and visit. I do try and be as helpful as I can be ..... I love dealing with my guests in person....contact me direct if you need to anytime. X Gillian Crozier xx

Fabulous Villa, Well equipped and lovely pool and sun terrace.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 had a fantastic stay at Villa Aura. Gillie makes sure everything you may need is to hand. The pool is great, spent most of our time in there. only 5 minutes or so around the corner and you have an abundance of places to eat, drink and browse for holiday souvenirs. A short taxi or bus ride to Protaras and there's even more of the above. The Villa is a great base to explore from, by either a hired car, taxi or bus. The ceiling fan's and air con are a real bonus. A real home from home. Thank you Gillie and Brian for sharing your Villa with us.

Excellent location and villa was perfect for our family group.

  • 5 of 5

We had 7 adults in our family group ages ranging from 17 to 54. The location was perfect for all our needs. The bars and restaurants in Pernera - less than 2 mins walk from villa offered good food at reasonable prizes and was still lively enough to have a pleasant night out when us older members of group needed a quiet night. Prototas was short bus ride (1 euro 50) and was much livelier for our young adults. Buses still running at 3am but taxi easy to get and all drivers really helpful and friendly. We had never stayed in a villa before tending to always go to hotels so was a bit worried about accommodation prior to arriving but villa was amazing - really spacious modern and immaculately clean. We all settled in immediately and it felt like home from home in hours. The pool was one of our favourite bits of the holiday - everyone loved it. We have been home nearly 2 weeks and still talking about this holiday - best one we have had for years. We will definitely be considering doing this again.

Car: not necessary


5 minutes walk from the villa are various picturesque coves and beautiful beaches making up the coastline of this quaint corner of Cypriot landscape. You can go fishing or have fun on all sorts of boats from glass bottomed to banana boats or even just laze all day on a sun lounger in the sand. Snorkeling or diving are popular, as the magnificent marine life & visibility are second to none. A newly built boardwalk with stunning views of the Mediterranean links Pernera to the famous Fig Tree Bay.


Larnaca is the closest airport at about 40 minutes drive away from the villa with departures from most UK airports. It is a brand new airport which opened in Dec 09 to cope with the growing popularity of this side of the island. It is not essential to hire a car as we are perfectly located within walking distance of some of best restaurants in this area as well as the beach, although there are many sights like the Troodos mountains for which a rental car would be useful.


Villa Aura in Pernera is located a mile away from the next town of Protaras, easily accessible either by taxi from the local taxi rank or bus, or even on foot along the new promenade in 15 minutes. We have a small supermarket round the corner from us for most of your needs, but if you require a big shop just hop in a taxi and Paralimni is a 5 minute drive away with a couple of bigger supermarkets at very competitive prices. Ayia Napa is a 15 minute drive away.

Further Details:

We have fallen in love with this friendly little town of Pernera not only because of all the easy-to-access amenities, restaurants, tavernas and bars within walking distance - preferable if you like to have a glass of wine or two - but also because of the many things to do - like WaterWorld Water Park, Ayia Napa – great for the whole family and located in Ayia Napa, WaterWorld is the largest water park in Europe and is about 20 minutes away from Villa Aura in a taxi. Or Ocean Aquarium Park in Protaras – open all year round. The Ocean Aquarium Park is home to over 1,000 different marine species. A great day out! Paralimni is a 5 minute drive with a couple of big supermarkets and a maze of little streets where you can find quaint little coffee shops and boutiques for those who love to shop. The more lively Ayia Napa is a 15 minute drive away with night clubs and bars for those who like to dance the night away.
