I believe that for Daisy, the Chateau de Chillon symbolizes money and adventure. She's already wealthy, but she doesn't have the culture of the monied people she meets while traveling through Europe. For Winterbourne to take her there is equivocal to him bringing her home to meet the family. It isn't so much the chateau as the fact that it symbolizes his home.
