Rabieh is an upscale suburban area on the northern edge of Greater Beirut, Lebanon, about 20 minutes driving distance from Beirut. It is located in the foothills of Mount Lebanon, on the road to Bikfaya. Rabieh saw its population increase sharply in the late 1980s, following the Lebanese civil war. Most of Rabieh's inhabitants are Christians, and it is considered one of the most expensive places to live in Lebanon; many magnificent villas have been built all over the hillside. Rabieh is also famous for its biodiversity and ecological richness. Rabieh is as well the home of many prominent Lebanese personalities and politicians.

It's divided into three sectors: Rabieh 1 and Rabieh 2 where the big villas are situated, going from "rue 1" (1st street ) till "rue 25" (25th street ) Rabieh 3 where buildings are allowed to be up to four storeys tall, going from "rue 26" till "rue 35" (26th street => 35th street ).

Rabieh has a geo-strategic location, it is only 15 to 20 minutes away from the vibrant capital Beirut, and is a minute's drive from the Bikfaya highway.

Despite its proximity to the capital, Rabieh's population density is relatively low. It is situated at 200–300 m above sea level.
