Sotogrande is divided into sections:

Zone A is a very pleasant section with lots of trees in lower Sotogrande. Here the streets start with the letter "A", like Alvarado, Avila.

Kings and Queens - this is part of Zone A with plots no smaller than 2,000m2 and with the plots of 4,000m2 around the lower golf course, Royal Golf. This section is very much in demand by the people who know Sotogrande and especially by the Spanish from Madrid. The streets are named after kings and queens of medieval Spain. Very few plots or houses in this area have sea views.

Zone B is also in lower Sotogrande and the streets in this area start with the letter "B", like calle Barbara, etc. In this zone the plots are smaller - around 1,000m2.

Zone C is in upper Sotogrande and is quite nice with larger plots and a cork forest.

Zone F is a large area, also in upper Sotogrande, where many of the properties have sea views but the plots are smaller, around 1,200 to 1,500m2.

La Reserva is a relatively new section of Sotogrande, opened around 12 year ago. It is very close to the highly regarded International School. This section has bigger plots, magnificent sea views and bigger, newer houses.

Valgrande is the apartments section of Sotogrande. This is a very well planned area in middle/upper Sotogrande, opposite the entrance to the Valderrama Golf Course.
