Vouillé is a commune in the Vienne department in the Poitou-Charentes region in western France. Inhabitants are known in French as Vouglaisiens.

The Battle of Vouillé or Vouglé (from Latin Campus Vogladensis) was fought in the northern marches of Visigothic territory, at Vouillé, Vienne, (Gaul), in the spring of 507 between the Franks commanded by Clovis and the Visigoths of Alaric II, the conqueror of Spain.
