Short haul holiday - quiet, near beach, not overly touristy

Just looking for recommendations as the one I got last year was spot on (just west of Bargau in Portugal). I think I posted in Chat as I can't find the thread now though to see what else people suggested.

We going end June / early July with two children (not school age yet). They would like a beach and swimming pool.

Me and DH would like to be relatively remote (ideally we will find a self catering apartment and stock up with food on arrival so local restaurants / bars aren't that important although would like places within an hours drive for day trips out). Nice scenery and a quiet beach are top of our wish list.

I've said short haul due to the age of the children but we would consider longer. We'll rent a car so rural is fine.

Have a look at Chrani in the Peloponnese or Vasilikos in Zakynthos.
We had lovely holidays there, both very quiet with just a few tavernas, but within easy reach of places to visit.
