Vouillé is a commune in the Deux-Sèvres department in western France. It sits about ten kilometers from Niort on the banks of the Lambon, where that small river empties into the Sèvre Niortaise.

It is traditionally identified as the Campus Vogladensis, site of the Battle of Vouillé (507), in which Clovis definitively vanquished the Visigoths.
