Correct. These are beutiful chateaux.

Well, in the US, there are San Simeon (out in San Luis Obispo, CA) and the Biltmore estate of the Vanderbilts in Asheville, North Carolina. And of course, Sleeping Beauty's castle in Disneyland, and Cinderella's Castle in DisneyWorld.

A winery in Napa recently put up a real castle, with moat and turrets. I forget the name of the winery.

I also agree, on most of them they look like mansions, here in San Angelo we have houses like those, but i do like the first one and it does look like a castle to me exept that there is no walls to deffend it, but anyways i don't know what hey are is just my opinion and all of them look nice!!!
