Only cities and villages. Thats why I always use a city as my HQ and give every castle and the remaining cities that I capture to my vassals, but I always make sure I get the castle first then distribute the castle after so I keep the fiefs. I do however give a couple vassals 2 fiefs around my city to help protect it.
