A villa (French and English: Villa) is a building that has a four-sided outline in today’s definition and is usually built around cities or in summers. However, in some countries, construction laws allow citizens to build villas inside the city, and residential houses are built as villas.
The construction of the villas began in the ancient Roman Republic. At that time, valuable buildings for the upper class were built as villas in large grounds or gardens. After the collapse of the Roman Empire by the Church, their use changed and they were used as monasteries. Repairs and alterations were again used as aristocratic buildings.
In popular culture in Iran, houses with a four-sided view or a sloping roof are usually called villa houses. In northern Iran, due to the humid climate, most houses were built as villas, and with the expansion of cities, the number of villas in city centers decreased. But in the suburbs and towns of the villas can be seen.
