So is villa dative?


It is ablative singular. in with the ablative is a static, no movement to location.

The dative singular of villa is villae.

    I though villa was city and domo was house??


    No, villa is villa, a country house. Sometimes I translate it as house, depending on the context.

    A domus is a house, smaller than a villa.

    It should accept either in villa or domi. Notice there is no in with domi. It uses the older locative case.
