Put my mind at ease - is there anywhere nice to live in Fife, Scotland?

My husband and I are relocating from Austria (though we're both from the UK) as he has just got a job in St Andrews and I am going to continue my job remotely with trips back to Austria once a month (so ideally I don't want to be more than 2hrs from Edinburgh airport). We own a flat in Edinburgh, so we'll live there initially, but we would like to move a little closer to St Andrews to reduce my husband's commute.
Everyone keeps telling me that Fife is really nasty, and that I won't like living there. I know that St. Andrews is nice, albeit expensive, but where else might I find nice property, in or near a nice town with reasonable facilities (good schools, big supermarket, nice cafes, good pub or restaurant). The most important thing to me is to find a really nice house, as I will spend all my working day there, but second to that I would like decent facilities.
Can anyone shed any light on what it's life to live in Fife and where I might like to live?
