Cyprus? There are quiet places to stay if you root around. Culture: Roman city at Kourion, mosaics at Paphos.

I think the naff bit is at the very eastern tip - Agia Napa or however you spell it. We've only been to the Greek (south) side as we have friends living in Limassol, but apparently the most beautiful beaches are in the north.

Limassol itself is busy - lots of high rise but some charming parts too down by the old harbour.

Our friends took us to governor's beach where there's a bar/restaurant right by the beach so free use of loos, changing room, sun loungers etc just as long as you buy a few drinks throughout the day.

Paphos has lots going on and is reasonably close to one of the airports. The other airport is Larnaca which is at the eastern end.

It probably doesn't matter too much where you stay as the island is small and car hire is cheap (at least it was before Cyprus joined the Eurozone - mayu have changed a bit now!) They drive on the left, too. If you go then make sure you drive into the mountains.
