Resort help required

Myself and the wife are looking to visit one of the Greek islands this year for our summer holiday

Both early 40s

Our criteria is we will be looking for a self catering apartment/villa in a town similar to Protaras in Cyprus which for those of you that don't know it, it has a fabulous sandy beach (fig tree bay), and fairly lively town with bars for a few drinks with a bit of music and entertainment and good choice of restaurants but not Faliraki style !

The other town to compare with would be Corralejo on Feurtaventura which we visited this year and had the sort of vibe and size of town that we are searching for.

There are so many islands I am just completely lost where to look and what island to go for let alone a resort.

So based on our criteria can anyone offer any resort direction please and whether somewhere on Mykonos might meet our requirements ?

The other criteria is we prefer private rental properties of a more modern style than the more traditional which hopefully helps you out there a little with some guidance.

Many thanks in advance of anyone being able to offer any advice

Mykonos would probably be a bit too quiet for you. The resorts are pretty small but it is a really nice island. Sidari in Corfu probably would be a good choice as it is lively, quite a similar size to Correlejo and the beach is also good. How about Turkey? Olu Deniz is a cracking resort. An amazing beach, great strip with a mixture of bars and is also cheap this year due to the exchange rate. Lots of excursions too so you wouldn't ever be stock for things to do.

As a regular in both Corralejjo and Mykonos, you will find Mykonos busier than Corralejo! Mykonos has a lot of cruise ships, and is a lot more up market than corralejo. Prices are a lot higher as well, 50% minimum higher. If you want to get the beaches, consider Platis Gialos as a centre for hotel. It is a short hop in a taxi to town, and there are great beaches within walking distance. Villas in Mykonos are very expensive.
