The Roman villa was a type of domestic building, often luxurious, and found in the countryside, at the seashore and also in the edges of urban centres.
Some late Roman villa had luxuries like hypocaust-heated rooms with mosaic floors; mosaics are known to have been found in Roman Britain. As the Roman Empire collapsed, villas in Britain were abandoned.
In other areas some at least survived with large working villas often donated by aristocrats to individual monks, often to become the nucleus of famous monasteries. In this way, the villa system of late Antiquity was preserved into the Early Middle Ages.
