The 26-year-old French left-back, who spent last season on loan at Liverpool, has signed a four-year deal.
The former Lyon man earned his sole international cap in 2011 and moved to Valencia the following year, after spells with Porto and Vitoria Setubal.
He will fill a hole in defence for Villa manager Paul Lambert, who has already signed Joe Cole, Philippe Senderos and Kieran Richardson this summer.
Villa are believed to be paying a fee in the region of £2-3m for Cissokho, who had two years remaining on his Valencia contract.
He made 15 Premier League appearances for Liverpool last season but did not feature a great deal during the run-in, as the Reds fell narrowly short in the title race.
Cissokho won the Portuguese league title during his time at Porto and the French Cup while at Lyon.
