The estates are surrounded by the Navy’s properties close to the Little Sea, an inland sea creating a dual inlet north of Taranto, for which has been recently initiated the procedure for the recognition of its value as a nature reserve with the name “Little Sea Natural Park”.
Both cottages are situated among the Navy’s military compounds, with access from Via del Pizzone. The two detached houses have a masonry structure with tuff blocks and develop on two floors above ground with an internal staircase. They are surrounded by a flat, rectangular plot of land.
