Looking for a Rest Spot in February

My wife and I will be in Sicily for Carnivale and the Almond Blossum Festival. After that, we'd like to find a relatively quiet, flat (not too many steps or hills) and sunny place to relax in before returning home. We have blocked off two weeks for our retreat. We are open to suggestions to any place in Italy (island or mainland). If you have a favorite getaway spot, we'd love to hear about it. We are in our 60's so rough terrain is out but we love to mix with locals, speak Italian and we will have our own transportation. We are not wealthy but have funds enough to be comfortable, though we often seek accomodations in convents, palazzi or historical buildings. We love art, Italian cuisine and history. However, we would prefer to avoid large metropolitan areas.

We will arrive February 2nd and depart after February 16th. How long after depends on what we find to do there. It could be as late as the 26th. We will arrive in Trapani and do not yet have a departure planned. We will be in Acireale for carnival and in Agrigento for Almond Blossum Festival. Any ideas for us?
