Les Poulières is a commune in the Vosges department in Lorraine in northeastern France.

Inhabitants are called Polérois.


The commune is positioned between Épinal to the west and Saint-Dié to the north-east, in the valley of the Neuné, a tributary of the Vologne River. Neighbouring communes are Biffontaine and La Chapelle-devant-Bruyères. Les Poulières is at the confluence of several roads, but roads here are small and twisting, thanks to the topography, on the westrern fringes of the Vosges Mountains.
