Madonne-et-Lamerey is a commune in the Vosges department in Lorraine in northeastern France.

Inhabitants are called Lamadoniens.


Madonne-et-Lamerey comprises a grouping of hamlets on the eastern edge of Dompaire. It is crossed by the little River Gitte, a tributary of the Madon.


The commune of Madonne-et-Lamerey as currently constituted was created shortly after the Revolution.

In earlier times Madonne was the local capital of a small territory that included Madonne, Lamerey, Naglaincourt, Craincourt and Chenimont, and which was part of the bailiwick of Dompaire. The bailiwick belonged to the Abbess of Remiremont who had control over the administration of justice here at all levels, although the administration of justice was in practice delegated. In terms of ecclesiastical administration the commune fell within the parish of Laviéville, having no church of its own: it remains without its own church to this day, being currently within the parish of Dompaire.
