If you want to hear Super Bowl LII predictions, you could go to... just about any other page on the Internet. 

But if you’d like to hear about a majestic ski chalet in the Italian Alps where you and 18 friends will soon be using the word “après” profusely... 

You’re in precisely the right place.

Because here we're talking about Il Fieniletto, a new, nine-bedroom villa-for-rent in Italy’s Dolomite mountains that has all the balconies you’d expect from such a property, as well as the indoor pool you don’t. You can book your stay now.

This looks like the sort of European hideaway a Sean Connery-era Bond would steer a snowmobile to, before pulling on a turtleneck and getting some fondue started. Chalk that up to the rustic, wood-plank walls, occasional modern furniture and just plain sexy fur or cashmere bed covers. Fur covers always make us think Bond.

The place is within walking distance of Cortina, an absolute charmer of an Alpine village. But you may have to take our word for that, as you'll be busy with the indoor, jet-stream pool and at-home spa with steam room and sauna.

But you will be going skiing. Because then you'll get expert guidance from Edo, a former pro skier who now serves as the property’s local concierge.

And you hate to see an Edo go to waste.
