A bungalow is,by definition a single storey dwelling (the name originates from British colonial rule in India during which time this style was popularised.)

A villa may be single or 2 storey in its construction

The term Bungalow is derived from Indian word Bungalo for houses built in Bengal style. This style was adopted by the British for building their summer retreats during the colonial rule, and carried to Europe and USA where it become popular during the arts and crafts movement.

Bungalows are generally low single storied houses (with an occasional smaller second floor built into the roof) with wide porches, verandahs and sloping roofs with deep overhangs
Villa:
Villas were upper class country estates built by Romans. They were designed to be self sufficient, and were surrounded by buildings like outhouses, gardens, storage warehouses, and farmlands.

Roman Tuscan villa style spread through Europe during the renaissance. These villas were built more for leisure. Nowadays the term is loosely used to mean anything from semi-detached house to a luxurious home.
