About the Owner

Gillian and Brian Crozier live in Yorkshire with their 3 sons and their daughter who range in age from 18 - Argh! - teenagers lol - down to 10 years old. Oh and their Jack Russell - Daisy! Having spent loads of time and money holidaying in this beautiful area of Pernera in other people's villas they decided to buy and share with others a luxury villa of their own. Hope you like it. x :-D

Perfect villa, great location

  • 5 of 5

Villa Aura is on a quiet, well kept and gated development just minutes form Pernera's main thoroughfare. We've stayed in numerous villas here over the years and this is the nicest. With a pristine pool and lovely roof terrace it was perfect. The pool area is in sun for most of the day and the roof terrace is the best place for cocktails after dark, views are great. Thanks to Jan and Sue who look after the villa and are on hand if you need them and to Gill the owner who is just a click away on email. Can highly recommend it and can't wait to go back.

Superb villa and location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as described and was set in a fantastic location.

The view from the roof top terrace was spectacular, it was a tranquil place to sit in the morning and catch some early sun.

The location is perfect if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle but only a short trip if you prefer things a bit livelier.

Local supermarkets, shops, restaurants, several bus stops and a car rental service are reachable by foot in less than 5 minutes. I would highly recommend La cultura del Gusto if you have a taste for fine food - again only a short walk from the villa.

The pool was much appreciated and was used daily, sun loungers are plentiful as was the all day sunshine.

We would definitely recommend this villa to anyone wanting to visit Cyprus, particularly the Protaras/Pernera area.

Great family villa

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week in Villa Aura. What a beautiful villa! Everything we needed from the dishwasher and washing machine for me to the playstation, games and tiddly winks for the kids (mine are 26 & 20) Situated in an ideal location. Five minutes from the hustle bustle of Pernera and a 10 minute walk to the local beach. The decour was amazing, typically cypriot with added english touches. Pool supurbly maintained and lots of inflatables to keep us all entertained, whilst enjoying the lovely hot weather. The welcome pack waiting for us on our arrival was a fantastic personal touch (beers and wine cooling in the fridge, together with bread, milk, jams, water, tea and coffee) Will recommend to all friends and family and will definatley use Villa Aura again, if only to hear the ice cream man calling (literally) everyday Thank you

Great week away at Villa Aura

  • 5 of 5

Extremely well equipped and comfortable, with facilities including a dish washer, washing machine and even hair straighteners (which impressed my wife!). With two doubles and a twin it worked very well for our group of friends, but would work equally well for a family (and is equipped with stair gates for young children). The roof terrace is great for drinks in the evening. Local agents Linda and Dave were very friendly and helpful, coming out promptly on our first evening to replace a broken key.

Whilst a car is handy for getting around to see the sights on the island, the location of the villa is such that there is a good selection of restaurants within 5 mins walk - easily enough to eat at different places every night for a week.

Would certainly consider booking again if we revisit this part of the island.

This villa was fantastic. It was lovely and clean and homely. It was big enough for the five of us with room to spare. Everything was well maintained. The pool area was a good size. The location was great if you had children. It really is only five minutes to the shops, bars and restaurants. The local beach is a five minute walk from the shops. We loved Kalamis restaurant on the beach. We also had a meal at El gusto which was wonderful. Avoid fish dishes. The fish is mostly frozen and was not nice. The local Metro supermarket is a ten minute bus ride from outside the Knights pub. The driver will shout when you need to get off. The local supermarket is basic so you do need to go to the Metro. The staff there were so helpful.

The owners of this villa are very helpful and kind. They have local staff at the villa ( Linda and Dave) who also made our stay very relaxing. We loved our stay at gillie's family home. Would whole heartily recommend this villa. We hope to go back in 2015.

From the Owner

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.

Activity and Interests

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.

  • 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
