Xamontarupt (French pronunciation: ​[ksamɔ̃taʁy]) is a commune in the Vosges department in Grand Est in northeastern France. Its inhabitants are known as Rupéains[1] or Xamontois.[2]

Geography[edit]

Abutting the heavily wooded massif of le Fossard, the village is crossed by the Cuves stream, an outflow of the Vologne river.

History[edit]

Evidence of protohistoric human presence: construction from set stones, flakes of cut quartz. 400-year old holly in the village, probably some of the oldest in Europe, can be seen on the route leading to the Haut-du-Bois maquis.

In 1656, the village was called "Charmontaruz"
