Sarine (Arabic: سرعين التحتا‎) (also spelled Sareen, Serraine Et Tahta) is an agricultural village in the Bekaa Valley in Lebanon.

The Church of Saint Georges in Sarine was destroyed during the war in 1976 . Under the auspices of Bishop Al-Hashem, the Bishop of Baalbeck and the patronage of Ms. Manell P. Brice, a member of the Journal of Maronite Studies' Editorial Board, the rebuilding of the church began in 1999.

The village is inhabited mainly by the Chamoun family of Lebanon.
