B-Holidays is a travel agency specialized in the Eastern Pyrenees. Thomas Billard – his founder – is originally from the region with 10 years experience in beach tourism. He left the area to pursue his studies and completed a Masters degree in management at Toulouse Business School. He then began a career in purchasing, working for large companies in Toulouse and then Belgium. But the pull from his roots proved too strong… and he decided in March 2016 to come back to the region and follow his heart by setting up B-Holidays.
His grandfather, Raul Busquets, a Catalan who was passionate about the Eastern Pyrenees, never tired of regaling him with tales of the region’s riches. He also felt the region was little known and under-exploited, considering its wealth of attractions. This was why Thomas set up B-Holidays: to promote discovery of the local area and everything it has to offer, basing our offering on the concept of quality – and an exchange between visitors and locals. To paraphrase the famous Roussillon singer, Jordi Barre, «I want to sweep away the frontiers that defend the treasures of these horizons, through the love in my heart».
This is the true spirit of B-Holidays. We’ll help you discover the Eastern Pyrenees region. But we want you to get involved and be an actor – rather than a spectator – in your holiday experience. Therefore, B-Holidays met wine producers, farmers, local cultural associations, artisans, shop owners, artists… to create original activities that get you involved whilst discovering another facet of the Eastern Pyrenees.
